Bit late for April fools isn't it?

Disgusting scam but not hard to see how it would do well. It's got hallmarks of about half a dozen schemes bundled up up to and including a pyramid scheme!

That's correct, I discounted much of the comments but it was a good prompt for me to think critically about what the authors were aiming to do. A skill I tend to not practice so often!

Saved to watch later, cheers!

I have watched a few of Destin's videos on the telescope, really enjoyed one of his latest ones:

Thank you for sharing, it helps give a critical deconstruction of the original article and it's always good to get competing view points.

I'm sorry your family is going through that. There isn't much that I could say to help but I hope you know you can reach out to talk.

Alzheimer's is a hell of a battle for everyone involved, speaking from experience. It sounds like you are going at it the right way though, being prepared.

All my love to you and yours goob.

Terrifying, the court of public opinion seems to agree with the Swedish justice system.

I would be very interested to see if this made it to the ECHR.

Thanks for sharing as always.

Thank you for sharing, it helps ground the ongoing war.

Can't say I'm familiar but I did look him up. I don't really mind it. It was just something hammered home in every English and writing class I ever took.

I am so glad to have finally read this work. It has been on my incredibly small to-read list for years, and whenever I have tried I have maybe managed a chapter or two and then found it hard to progress. I have only now managed to do so because I have come into possession of an old Kindle, and downloading the ebook off Project Gutenberg.

I'm not kidding about finding it nauseating to read though with long meandering sentences with irrelevant detail thrown in repeated over and over. Maybe this is part of the charm that paints this world that feels real and lived in.

And who starts a sentence with a conjunction anyway?
