Bingo! “How children lost the right to roam in four generations” http://bit.ly/17bvfO Twitter IS faster than my searching skills.

via Twitter Web Client

I think it was a UK paper I think [?], and it had a satellite image with the two kids’ ranges outlined. Less than 3 years ago, probably.

via Twitter Web Client

Trying to find a news article that compared distance kids walked 2 generations ago to today’s must-be-driven-everywhere. Search-fu fail.

OK, YouTube has officially jumped the shark. I did NOT request a Short Stack music video!

@stubbornmule I’m skeptical of eBook readers. ANOTHER device, solely to read, in addition to what I already have. [shrugs]

RT @marcfennell: U2 sounds better in the rain. [Yes. They sound even better in a well, or thrown down a mineshaft.]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus As a defence, it’s right up there with “Nyer nyer! had my fingers crossed!” Perhaps SMH over-simplifies for tabloid effect.

@SnarkyPlatypus Ce que tu dis est logique. Hélas, M. Turnbull est un pélican, pas une mouette.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Sorry, her DEFENCE is that she committed document fraud? And her job is “managing director”? WTF? http://tr.im/D1Gx

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Le monde n’est jamais “soulagé.” Il est dans un état constant de chaos. Demander à M. Turnbull.

@SnarkyPlatypus I just wish the cats could be trained to fetch absinthe like the magpie could buy newspapers. http://bit.ly/2GCe4Z

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Or, people could FUCKING WELL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT THEY SAY and deal with it.

via Twitter Web Client

Perhaps some sort of selective disintegration ray that’d take out certain high school friends.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus WELL WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY BOTTLES OF ABSINTHE THEN? RIDDLE ME THAT!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

There should also be some sort of device to, erm, delete all poorly-chosen casual sex partners.

via Twitter Web Client

Not only should we be able to delete tweets, we should be able to send the police into other people’s homes to retrieve the letters we send.

Pretty much every Google Images search with “kilt” in it, and Safe Search turned off, presents difficulties.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @smperris OK, this isn’t a kilt but it IS tartan. Shall I wear this instead? http://bit.ly/2bemSW

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus In which case, I shall have to find a kilt to wear and parade before you for judgement. Alternatively, Photoshop.

@ikostar Um, it’s not about adults now roaming further than they did as children then, it’s children now compared with children then.
