I'm at my local coffee shop to get our morning caffeine hit.

The public are lucky I've brushed my hair and put on my 'outside' pants.

But there are young* girls here and they are completely done up in heels, makeup, etc.

I have never felt so OLD 😭

*late teens, early 20's

I live in my angry place most of the week, it's what fuels me.

Weekends are for laughing. No anger required.

When you feel life’s getting on top of you and you can’t take any more, just close your eyes and go to your angry place.

How about Black Friday but for houses and fuel?

Holy shit, small human has become addicted to Gummi Bears on Disney+ 😂

It's like reliving my childhood. She's freaked out by the fact I know the song off by heart 🎶🎶🎶

Seeing as it's Friday, here's a general 'Hey, we're a cool bunch, come hang with us if you aren't already!' invite!


100% agree with Snipey here. I didn't phrase well. The ability to turn replies off is incredibly valuable for many reasons, notably for women to be able to prevent harrassment.

Seeing it used in THIS way is frustrating - because it's an attempt to silence critics.

@girlgerms@twitter.com Jess, I'm the last one to defend him, but having replies turned off when you have a shit-ton of people who start crap with you is pretty common.

He's a dumpster fire for lots of other legitimate reasons, but don't disparage one of the few tools women have been given here

This - information, best practice, recommendations... they all change. You cannot know everything.

@girlgerms@twitter.com I knew what the answer once was before it changed several times... of course I'm going to look things up. Thats because I know what good engineering practices are - and its not being a know it all.

It's so sad to see DHH go (more) off the rails these past few years.

I read the BBC News article on this.

That guy is an utter cockwomble of the highest order.

If commiting crimes was purely due to a lack of role models, women would've made up 90% of the inmates in prisons until the last few decades...

Seeing some nasty and fragile hate from a tory, who states that women playing the doctor, a fictional character causes men to commit crimes.

The doctor played by a woman is one of my favourite decisions in who history ❤️

Jodie Whittaker and Jo Martin are fantastic

The fact that this twatwaffle has "replies" turned off shows he knows what an utter dumpster fire of a take this is.

I do not know it all. I do not pretend to. I know how to *FIND* the information and piece it together and how to make sense of it. That's my skill.

I honestly wish "Knowing how to Google shit" was a basic school subject, because it is one of, if not *THE*, most valuable tools you have - as ANY kind of professional.

Anyone who says otherwise is fucking bullshitting you.

every expert you admire looks stuff up all the time, and every one who tells you they don't is lying or trying to sell you something

Fonts have a weight and fonts have a height, so technically it should be possible to calculate the BMI of a font.

"...men are less likely than women to perceive that gender inequality is a problem in their workplaces and in society in general."

No. Fucking. Shit.

If you're BENEFITING from it, why would you see it as a problem?! 🤦‍♀️
