The game Nationstates that I mentioned here a few days ago is getting more and more bizarre. The main industry in Ventotenesis, my country, is the pizza delivery industry but they were on strike. So, with the future of the country at stake, what should I do? For the hell of it, I went for the Thatcherite option of crushing the strike. The result: the economy has boomed, and Ventotenesis is now a major cheese exporter in the region, making more than countries many times its size… The game is a bit extreme in its outcomes, but it takes not too much time to play and is quite amusing. The main site is here and the page for my country here.

Puhh gerade nochmal Glück gehabt. Man könnte es natürlich auch einfach so lassen als Wahrzeichen (und Abschreckung) für die Altstädte von heute. https://twitter.com/kn_online/status/1467449710973751312
Schreckmoment am #Holstentor in #Lübeck: Ein Autofahrer war am Freitagabend mit seinem Pick-up direkt an Wahrzeichen von der Straße abgekommen und hatte die Umzäunung durchbrochen. https://www.kn-online.de/Nachrichten/Schleswig-Holstein/Spektakulaerer-Unfall-in-Luebeck-Autofahrer-durchbricht-Gelaender-am-Holstentor?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1638702078-1
I bought a second hand Roomba 866 a while ago on eBay. It vacuums well but kept smashing into furniture. Turns out this kind of felt the previous owner had stuck on *to protect furniture* meant the Roomba sensors were obscured
