"What if there is an STD there and my daughter is going to get it? We have to wait two months to do a blood test on her" 🤮

I'm getting very (very VERY) bored of this petulant and uniquely millennial argument that posh white women (or any other 'majority' for that matter) making things is not 'representative'. Its boring, faux woke bollocks and here's why.

Yes! Or at least giant single cheques. They cost about £25 I once spent an entire afternoon looking into this instead of working.

I want to do this, hold up the line, and right before the last letter in my signature, say "Oh, you take Apple Pay?"

I immediately block and no longer donate to any “rescue” animal org that uses pictures of creatures in pain. I’m quite aware of inhuman treatment by monsters and don’t need to see gore to open my purse in support of animals in need. My 10 house fur friends make me be kind daily!

Always good to see the Musk bros leap in to argue that it must be a fake video created by a short seller or big oil or some 'pedo guy'

It's one thing showing an animal that has been nursed back to health and happiness, but another thing filming a highly distressed creature that "may not survive the night so give generously"

I know this has been a fundraising strategy used by nonprofits for aeons, but these are animals with jaws ripped off, heads caved in etc. You really wonder whether it might be kinder to euthanise the poor creatures...

I'm becoming increasingly disturbed by a type of Instagram animal misery porn that's created by animal rescue groups. I see posts showing dogs and cats with increasingly gory injuries or congenital problems that are used to solicit funding.

When I was a kid I saw a lot of Europe through cruises, it also help you decide where you want to go back to for a longer visit if you liked it

Yeah, it’s not my jam, but I can see how it would be for ppl who have mobility issues vs a tour that requires lots of walking

I read about "millennial cruises" a while back and it sort of made sense to me insofar as you can see way more places in a shorter space of time, which is a big deal if you have limited time off work I guess? Not my thing but I kinda get it

I can see that. I think I would still prefer a land-based organised tour
