    Elon Musk and Twitter and free speech

    Musk has totally misread the room. The people who valued twitter were not the few Trumpists going over to “parler” or whatever it was called when he got banned. It was mainly a space for news / sports / arts and left-leaning activists. He’s alienated all of them and he won’t attract the others...

    News and Updates about Russia's War against Ukraine.

    AP said they could be Ukrainian air defence missiles - they released a statement a couple of hours ago. We’ll see … ETA: edited after re-reading the statement

    News and Updates about Russia's War against Ukraine.

    I think it's looking more and more like it was Ukrainian air defense. For starters any air defense used by Russia in Ukraine is pretty much focused around the East / South I think). I guess something like that was bound to happen at some stage but it still complicated and awful. I hope it...

    News and Updates about Russia's War against Ukraine.

    So Biden says the missile was most likely not fired from Russia :yikes: What are the options? Ukraine itself, which would either mean Russians stationed in Ukraine or a terrible mistake from Ukraine, or Belarus, with Russians stationed in Belarus. It's all a bit weird...

    Russian Figure Skater tests positive for drugs - delays ceremony for team medals

    Yes a Russian journalist originally mentioned marijuana early on which led to the weed / Kondratiuk speculation but it didn’t last long.

    Gymnastics News #23: Defying Gravity

    The HB final was spectacular. Happy for Ellie Black too although the beam final was pretty lacklustre. In general, I love having so many medalists from different countries.

    Gymnastics News #23: Defying Gravity

    GB is the only team to have qualified both their MAG and WAG already :eek: One knows they've become a major gymnastics nation when they can essentially have a very rough day and still win a medal. The women had an average competition and finished 2nd, the men had their worst outing in years and...

    So the British men won a medal for that ? You've got to be kidding. That was an epically bad competition. I got excited for a second as Spain appeared in the lead before all the scores were in :lol: But no.

    Russian figure skating news & updates in 2022

    This - if my sample 20 years of living in France are anything to go by, it is not more of a thing in France than any other country…. In fact I really don’t remember it being a thing at all.

    Elon Musk and Twitter and free speech

    I use twitter about Ukraine (much of the FSU Ukraine news originates on twitter) , for gymnastics news. In the past I followed photojournalists but I kept getting sucked into ethical debates and so quit. I have 0 interest in celebrities and what they might have to say.

    Oh they are given lambananas 😍😍 They are a Liverpool mascot of sorts, a statue a student once made for an arts contest and the city has adopted it and replicated it all over the city :cheer:

    Team Canada is so emotional. So USA, GB and Canada get not only medals tonight, but team tickets for the Olympics :cheer: It must be particularly sweet for Canada who are realistically a bubble team on some days.
