This great review also includes this astonishingly brutal five-word summary of the entire Gladwellian oeuvre:

WATCH LIVE: You want to watch the hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on voting discrimination. Some of the best voting rights lawyers in the business are testifying.

Bishie-cat update: very thin, very shaky, very blind, very into his favorite food & being patted. He remains doubtful about having his head aggressively groomed by Oswin-kitten.

New tonight: Given NYT has now made details on Russian spy public, I can now report additional info we had withheld. Asset had direct access to Vladimir Putin, including the remarkable ability to take photos of presidential documents, and had served US for more than a decade. 1/

Mr Johnson on his feet, assuring us the remaining Jedi will be hunted down and defeated.

Current status: that was a meeting-heavy but good day.

Summarizing answers to my own question:

It’s mainly avoiding taxes on offshore companies, which the EU is going to impose if the Brexiters don’t scarper out of the EU.

I know that “made bank from the crash when the resolution won” is also a thing that happened for a lot of those people, but I’m guessing there’s more £ to be made.

Inbox 50. I just deleted everything older than 1 month.


David & I have finally defeated our first Remnant dungeon boss. We had to reroll the campaign to get a different boss.

We’re at well over 50 attempts on the first Remnamt boss and only once have we gotten it below 50%

David & I have hope that we might beat the first dungeon boss in Remnant: From the Ashes some day.

It regenerates and this is just brutal.
