    I get where you're coming from with that interpretation but I've always understood it as more up to date with all the memes and trending things on twitter and people who keep up with a constant drama that only concerns other people on the internet and nothing in real life.

    Huge vote of confidence from someone with that much to lose to get in the capsule but also the claim of being on the first is big for the ego.

    I'm rather bored of the constant pop up ads on my current one that I paid for ads to be removed for years ago before more recently they changed to a subscription requirement for advert removal.

    I'm looking for something easy to use that has no ads by default or has a one time payment to remove them. Extra features such as tags/folders would be great but not 100% required. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    I've been experimenting recently with trying to incorporate more protein into my diet since I realised I get roughly 50% of the recommended daily. My favourite way of doing this was through gram flour (mixture of chickpeas and lentils) pancakes since the flour itself is 25% protein.

    I blended a ratio of 60g:120g flour and water with a teaspoon of tumeric, salt, black pepper. Added some chopped up spring onions and fried pancake thin. (not fluffy american pancakes though)

    They're really good with chutney and for more protien rolling a fried egg up inside is good.

    Maybe the gas is more okay than lethal injection. That doesn't make it right by any measure. If they're set on the death penalty just use a large dose of fentanyl or bring back the guillotine...

    Would the counterpoint to the second paragraph not be that having your own is adding extra carbon footprint where adopting and rasing a child with enviromentalist views would bring the same benifit with none of the extra footprint since they're already alive?

    I was looking forward to a play through on all the new features so it's a shame to see it delayed but then again I'm glad we're seeing a games company who are willing to delay for the right reasons, hopefully it's a step on the way to less crunch and better respect for devs from publishers.

    I'm listening to Jose Gonzalez's new single Visions. I think I prefer El Invento (the previous single) but hopefully it's all building up to an album. It's been far too long since 2015.

    I can see how it would have been better to consult but if they want a much more standardised approach (which seems slightly like it could remove the unique flavour each community would develop) and do the enforced timelines they mentioned below that quotation it could be a polite way of cutting the volunteers out.

    Looks like they've not made a remake of aoe2 which I was a little worried about. I love the look of trees as cover for ambushes and manning troops on walls.
