The Blackest House. Honestly, even if you love the look, this could be dangerous for someone whose eyesight is not as sharp as it used to be. (via Fark)

It’s Time to Accept That Millennials and Gen Z Are the Same Generation. The sorting of people into such groups is an artificial construct, anyway. More discussion at Metafilter.

We've seen flight attendants make their safety routines funny, but this guy really puts the drama into it! It's even funnier in French.

Fun With Medieval Marginalia. The best captions are in the comments. (via Everlasting Blort)

> an expansive secluded .52 acre lot!

So secluded that you can see your neighbors' houses in every direction.

.52 acres is around 2000m2, my place is only 1000m2 but secluded by trees on three boundaries.
I like the look of the black house, and am amused the house has 2 bidets and 2 sheep as well.

That post on democracy has a first line that embraces both a third and first person narrative.

I know you Americans have 'evolved' the English language somewhat, but, like Trump trying to become king, some things should just not be allowed.

You'd think that with a possible war with China on the horizon the American people would unite as one ... but maybe that war, should it happen, will be the catalyst for unification .... or global destruction.

I live on a largish island in the South Pacific, colonised by the British centuries ago and based on a Christian faith .... should any war of the super powers leave a non 'Christian' country as victor, I fear we will be swallowed up in a land grab, as soon as they take over Australia.

I am as a sparrow squeaking while U.S C-5 Super Galaxies and whatever China has are filling up with jet fuel.
