Just FYI, Luke: I'm not seeing the images you're posting unless I right-click and select "view image."  Until I do that, I'm just getting a blank square.   :confused:

You might want to consider using Imgur to embed images.

Maybe.  I use ad blockers and stuff, so maybe one of those is interfering.   :shrug

This just happened, but it has gone viral. Christ Cuomo was interviewing his brother Governor Andrew Cuomo, and just played a joke on him. It was funny because it was totally unexpected. I haven't laughed so loud in a long time.

This pandemic might have improved air quality but it's also degraded Internet quality. Everybody's home clogging up the bandwidth. Maybe it's a "porndemic."

South Africa
Sale of alcohol has been banned since the first lockdown on March 24th. People (some) are getting desperate. Stage 3 of the lockdown comes into effect on June 1st and alcohol will again be on sale - but only for home consumption. We are anticipating queues and hoarding. :icon_rolleyes: Grin
