Friends, I need your help! YouTube says I can reclaim my orphaned URL if I can get 100 subscribers to the new channel for podcast tips/advice/reviews. Would you mind subscribing right now to help me reach that goal? You can always unsubscribe later. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpWSrcECov5d0EFNkkrGrOQ
I clumsily copy and paste numbers to open in Messages like five times a week and it still boggles my mind 12 years after introduction this isn’t any easier.
how in the name of 2019 does iOS still think I want to call every number I encounter. Why isn’t this a share sheet with options to Call | Text | Copy
 
Okay but have you tried calling it? Maybe it's an easter egg? Hint: the southeast corner of the dungeon hides a vorpal sword.
 
For the same reason that when you tap on a phone number in the "where" of a Android calendar invitation it takes you to Maps and tries to direct you to that number. Still. In 2019.
If you will it, Dude, it is no dream.
Step one of getting a custom hat made: visit Texas Hatters in Lockhart, Texas, where they make most of the hats you’ve seen in your favorite movies and tv shows. https://www.instagram.com/p/BvAJNCYnjKG/?utm_source=ig_twitter_share&igshid=1gaw42rtc8pw8
Whoops: actually, make sure to RSVP me if you want to join us, as it’s a closed set tonight.
Yo: anyone want to join me for a Scam Nation shoot this afternoon? We’re at the Rusty Mule in southwest Austin, starting around 4:30. (I’ll buy you a drink! 🍺🍸🥃 😀)
 
I was just right by there dammit.
 
AND I look amazing today.
 
You always look amazing.
 
Duh but today was really special. My remaining hair was even playing nice.

Yes! These are the gummi bears I was talking about with @hotdogsladies on today’s show! Nice find. https://twitter.com/akaBeakman/status/1105662011348791301
Mistaken for a millionaire, the protagonist seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
What’s your preferred newsletter service? Mailchimp? SendGrid? Something else?

I’m puzzled by why people do this, though. It makes them seem uneducated and misinformed. the word “before” even comes first. Ponderous, man.
RT @jadegordon: @danbenjamin I recently saw the latter captioned "OMG SHE ATE IT" and I laughed for 2 days.
PSA: In “before and after” photos, the before pic comes first. Otherwise people will think you’re super proud about how out of shape you’ve become, or that you’ve put the baby back inside of your body.

Huge and interesting news from the world of emoji: the first emoji set ever released probably wasn't the DoCoMo set from 1999 that we previously thought but Softbank's 1997 set. There's a bunch of good digital spelunking here in the story: https://blog.emojipedia.org/correcting-the-record-on-the-first-emoji-set/
 
(Sidenote: In 2020 we are supposed to get a pickup truck emoji)

What Matt Damon did in Martian doesn’t make up for what he did in Interstellar.

All podcasts containing ads. https://twitter.com/brycas/status/1103425156662349824
2/2 For example, what about a podcast by law enforcement for law enforcement, recommending a gun safe for securely storing police station arms? Prohibited. What about eharmony? Prohibited. Financial services, fantasy football, and yes, even pipe cleaners (yes, pipe cleaners).
1/2 I wonder if anyone has actually ever read the Spotify prohibited ads before they submitted their podcast to them. Many are common sense things, but so many of them are perfectly valid ads. https://www.spotify.com/us/brands/legal/advertiser-terms-and-conditions/#s4

I’ve owned every previous version of the Trials motorcycle games and I’ve had the same Xbox gamer tag for over ten years but I had no idea there was a new version until I found it on my own today. Microsoft could make so much money if it helped connect gamers to games they want.

A nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan wouldn't just have regional effects. It would be much worse.
