I watched Snowpiercer (the movie not the series) on Netflix and thought it was a cool bold move to have the korean dialogue unsubtitled but no it's supposed to be subbed, netflix was just bugging out or something.

bear in mind that I have very little expertise with this, only that I used to work in life insurance

depends who your next of kin is really, you have stuff even if you don't have assets per se and you might have wishes on how to be buried/cremated and so on

probably not worth getting a proper big lawyerly one all notarised and such but can't hurt to write a document and keep it in a safe place, if nothing else to make your intentions clear -- even if it's not legally binding hopefully your NOK will follow it.

thank you! I wanted to do all of them but I couldn't think of definitions but I am glad you liked the ones I came up with.

defined some for ya

broust (verb) - to have an informal jokey argument, e.g. I spent the other day brousting with my best friend over whether drinking is a subset of eating.

astine - 1 (mass noun) sleep dust; the crust that forms around eyes while sleeping, e.g. I woke up and rubbed astine from my eyes. 2 (adjective) the state of being so tired that one starts to make a fool of themself, e.g. After staying up all night, the astine madman actually asked if London was the capital of Europe.

borsden (noun) - an insult meaning someone who has aspirations of fame and fortune but will never make it, short for Matthew Borsden who is a person I just made up and is therefore not famous, e.g. He thinks he's going to get rich off bitcoin and be the next Elon Musk, what a total borsden!

tuptonid (adjective) - of indeterminate shape, e.g. I'd describe the demon that attacked me as tuptonid, about eight foot in size.

I assume it's because of the posts ghost getting upset and banning people but then regretting it and unbanning them shortly after.

for years I have maintained that I want to write a musical called Les Miserables (pronounced like the name Les and the plural of miserable) about a depressed guy named Les who wants to put on a musical. The second act consists of the Les Miserables musical in its entirety.

from my understanding A is just the regular plug, the wide one, B is the square "printer" plug, mini B is smaller but thicker than micro B which is the standard charging port.

but then this might be a joke that I don't get :/

I hate cars. March/April 2020 was super scary and difficult, but going out to empty streets was so refreshing.

To transfer fuel burning cars over to electric is gonna take a ton of infrastructure change that I think justifies a much bigger overhaul of the transportation system. Bring back the trams!

as a school teacher I can confirm that the special shows we get are way too cool to share with students
