Apparently in many parts of the UK, homes that face each other at the rear are required to be built 21 metres apart, and you'll never guess the reason why this rule exists.
Oh, and you can see it at the West Sound Film Festival on August 4: https://filmfreeway.com/WestSoundFilmFestival/tickets
If you live in or near #Seattle, I am highly recommending that you go and see the movie "Fantasy A Gets A Mattress".
It is a charming indie film about Fantasy A, Seattle's undisputed king of hustle, getting a mattress.
A wonderfully absurdist depiction of Seattle that you are absolutely missing out on right now. Better cinematography that I was anticipating, and a hilarious performance from their local actors from beginning to end.

Yeah, I know, context is everything, and there's virtually zero chance that anyone thinks we just dropped a literal H-bomb capable of reducing Europe to dust.
But c'mon now...
Nothing quite illustrates the pure stupidity of Republicanism like the current push to end birthright citizenship.
This can only occur by Constitutional amendment, and would require 38 states to ratify it. AKA: not going to happen.
That Trump thinks he can do it via Executive Order is even more outrageous. These kinds of campaign promises just show that the GOP knows exactly how stupid their constituents are that they know this nonsense will earn them votes...
@compuguy Many years ago I bought a waterproof FM radio that was supposed to be good for swimming.
It would lose reception as soon as it went under the water, even by an inch.
Completely useless device.
Decided to see what people were saying about the Titanic submersible on Twitter. Good lord people are stupid.
"Why doesn't it have GPS?" "Why doesn't it have a radio?" "If it has Starlink, why can't they get on the Internet?"
All those things are on the boat, not the submersible. Entirely too many people unable to process that these things aren't useful under a few feet of water, much less 2.5 miles of salt water.
This is the Vranas instance.
