@tulpa You can buy COBRA retroactively. Hang onto the paperwork and if something happens in July, go ahead and pay the bill. Otherwise, don't and save a small fortune.

@Jeff AllTrails is quite useful here in the US. I pay for the pro version to have offline maps when out hiking.

@scully Coach? 24 hours and you are talking like a native LOL

Ranting about social media 

@giffengrabber I only use it via a web browser (Firefox on desktop with the Duck Duck Go privacy extension and the DDG browser on mobile,) and I never see ads.

@davep Is it any good? I've tried a couple of the newer craft brewed NA beers and they aren't horrible, but not good enough to motivate me to buy them again either,

@Tay0 If Republicans control the Federal Govt in 2024 they'll pass a nationwide abortion ban immediately. They are already talking about it after the Supreme Court decision this AM. Just this week they've eviscerated the right to privacy and freedom of religion.

@wholesomedonut I did some research, mostly out of boredom, during the initial pandemic lock down and what I found is that most countries that are relatively easy to move to are places you don't want move to, with more unstable governments than we have currently in the US. Which makes sense - demand and supply.

@AAMfP It's not like GB or France are bastions of liberalism in recent years! The countries you'd want to live in generally make it hard to move there - although is probably true worldwide. Portugal seems to be somewhat easy to move to from outside the EU.

@ascott It's hard to get resident status in Canada though, unless you are in a certain job categories.

If you live in the US, where, realistically, can you move to? I've done some cursory research and the rest of the developed world is not in much better shape.

The Supreme Court is happy to EXPAND the right to carry a tool to kill other people but will (probably) RESTRICT or eliminate the right of a woman to govern her own body. It's almost like conservatism is about self-reinforcing power structures that oppress disfavored groups.

@technollama Let's all write our blog posts on Twitter's new platform that will fail in 18 months, taking all that content with it to oblivion.

@polymerwitch Maybe because we are all going to die regardless, and for many people a 2-week summer vacation is about as good as their life will get in any given year.

@Mundon Peak output for 6 hours is actually pretty damn good. I've read plenty of articles suggesting most people are really only "on" 2-4 hours a day.

@sandipb Yes - lets all write a bunch of blog posts on Twitter that will disappear when they kill the service in 18 months.

@scully If you find yourself chatting with a shower ring salesperson, run!

Have a great time! Post photos.
