2019/17: Perfect circle

A welcome relief from dystopia

Greetings from the Humber Estuary.

My car went in for the mandatory yearly safety check this week and needed no work, which was lucky as I couldn’t have paid for any work unless garages now accept tokens of gratitude as payment. This car is the most boring car I have ever owned, but in three years it’s only cost me four tyres and a two wiper blades. Can’t argue with the economy of it.

  • Why these social networks failed so badly [Gizmodo]

    A fairly long list of the social networks that have come and gone. How long until we see Facebook on this list - a decade? More?

  • Be amazed as Alexander Overwijk draws a perfect freehand circle:

Look after yourselves, anonymous readers, and be kind to each other.
