@Ghost Right, so they're recommending the Ioniq 5 which is the new model. I need to figure out the differences (other than looks!) to the previous Ioniq which sounds like it's just been discontinued.

@Ghost Oh awesome, could I trouble you for a link, please? 🙂

@rogbeer Lovely! I should imagine it's native to China, but it also grows up lots of very old houses in England 😄

Looking at potentially (business) leasing a fully-electric Hyundai Ioniq...

Anyone got one? Thoughts? 🤔

@athairbirb It does, to be fair. Just I had no real context and it was an 'exterior feature' 😅

Looking at potentially buying a new car and was wondering what 'aquablades' are.

@EU_Commission You're pointing downwards to nothing, presumably because you're auto-crossposting from Twitter?

Additionally, framing this as somehow a problem to do with workers instead of companies wanting infinitely flexible workers without paying appropriate salaries, is quite ridiculous.

I've had a week off running and drinking alcohol to see what effect it would have on my Heaet Rate Variability.

(Garmin measures 'stress' as the inverse of HRV - i.e. lower recorded stress levels are due to higher measured HRV.)

Looking forward to a gentle 5k tomorrow (and perhaps a whisky after my MRI scan!)

@evonity Yeah, it blow my mind that some people think they've managed to achieve things without the whole of society making that possible

@gidorah Oh, you're poor? Have you tried being rich?


I'm furious, and I don't usually let the Tories get to me. I grew up in a pretty rough area, so these statistics have faces.

For example, I reshared this on LinkedIn the other day, and it seemed like everyone who was telling me that it was "impossible" in places other than a "homogenous" society such as Finland was... American? Or went to private school themselves?

This is from Dan Hon's newsletter. He's British, living in the US.

This analogy of Americans treating Disneyland as a magical place where there's infrastructure and drinkable water resonates really hard for me.

I shouldn't laugh too much, as the UK is currently headed in this direction. However, I do have a hard time in explaining to a *lot* of Americans that over in Europe there's an approach which isn't rampant individualism.

@gemlog I quit a job because my boss (the CEO) was an ALM kinda guy. Couldn't see what the problem was, said he was "being inclusive" - and therein likes the problem.
