Were they black?

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.

There are some videos I watch in incognito mode so they don't mess up my YouTube recs, generally videos other people suggest I should watch, often from the comments sections of political articles.

I've noticed that as a result of this, incognito mode YouTube recommendations have become ... interesting. They seem to have become a mix of alt-right videos, far-left videos, videos of people talking about Disney, and videos I have no idea what they're about because they're in Indonesian.

I've become a Cracked Top Fan on Facebook. Not sure how this happened. But it's a thing.

Do you still read Cracked, Nathan?

That alone should qualify you as one of their top fans, these days.

Do you share their posts ever? I remember when Facebook started having Top Fans a couple of months ago, and a few of my friends were suddenly Top Fans of various pages. I think you need to share posts to achieve Top Fandom, because I'll click Like on any old shit but I never share anything, and I can't see myself ever even being in the Top Half of Fans for anything. Here is a link which I haven't read, because GDPR wants me to accept cookies and I refuse to do that, and here is what Facebook themselves have to say about Top Fans.

I have never had a tweet do this well, but it's really kinda meaningless.

With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

We went over a week with no posts in CASS. It was the best week of TCS's existence.

It was not! The best week was the one where I joined.

I got a plane on Friday. We landed in a very strong crosswind, and it was the most turbulent approach I've ever experienced.

I'm not much perturbed by turbulence on a flight, and I was more concerned that I might be about to burst an eardrum. (My eardrums are a bit fragile from chronic glue ear as a child.) I wonder if we had a steeper approach than usual because of the conditions (is that a thing, anyone know?) since I don't normally get more than minor discomfort in my ears and chewy sweets are normally enough to deal with it.

But even I had a moment of "whoa, is this alright?" when we were still bumping and rocking about as the ground rushed up to meet us. Though I wasn't truly scared: I know they would have diverted elsewhere or circled until it improved if the conditions weren't safe to land.

And then the touchdown was as smooth as you could ask for under any conditions. No bounce at all. There was applause for the pilot. All in all a mildly memorable end to a holiday.

Microsoft Flight Simulator needs destructible environments... For, uh, some reason.

Just come out and say it, Krash. You want to reenact the firebombing of Dresden.
