Misogyny would be understandable if vaginas weren't wonderful and magical and tasty.
Geoff: Maitlis needs to do a one-on-one interview with Cummings.
Geoff: The video trailer for W40k 9e is quite awesome.
But... I really can't go and buy a GW game right now. I have neither the time nor the money.
Geoff: A post by US President Donald Trump has been given a fact-check label by Twitter for the first time.
Mr Trump tweeted, without providing evidence: "There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent."
Twitter put a warning label in the post and a subsequent tweet under its new policy on misleading information.
President Trump responded by tweeting again, saying the social media giant "is completely stifling free speech".
Twitter's notification displays a blue exclamation mark underneath the tweets, suggesting readers "get the facts about mail-in ballots".
I... completely unintentionally, and without actually noticing... ate an entire pineapple.
And no. Not whole.

Nicotina: Bromelain is the enzyme in pineapple that causes sores as it breaks down protein. Bromelain can be used as a meat tenderizer (such as a pineapple juice marinade). Cooked Bromelain does not cause sores as enzymes are neutralized by heat of about 158 degrees Fahrenheit (70 degrees Celsius).
Those sores really hurt. Darn you pineapple, I love you but you hate me!
z3no_2 in reply to Nicotina: very interesting….
As a child, I remember visiting a pineapple farm and eating most of a not-quite-ripe pineapple and having a very sore mouth for days after. Now I know why!
Geoff: Urgh. I really could have just rolled over and gone back to sleep this morning rather than get up. And that's a rarity, usually if I wake up after the sun has risen, I have no chance of going back to sleep.
But it's a Monday and I do freelance work for a client on Mondays.
Except... today is a public holiday in the UK. Which I didn't realise until I was halfway through my coffee.
Geoff: This (widely screenshot) tweet was deleted. Presumably shortly before the person who wrote it was fired.
Geoff: The official Cabinet Office twitter account has pointed out that it was unauthorised and being investigated.
If it's symptomatic of Johnson's government losing control of the civil service (even after a decade of the Tories being in power) then that's potentially big. Such things can bring down governments.
Geoff: I have an ingrowing hair on my neck.
It is very, very sore. Especially since I caught it with a razor blade this morning.

Geoff: Trumpflakes automatically assuming I treat Biden with the same reverence they offer to the great orange catastrophuck just because I think he's a clown, is like saying that if you're not pro-Fascism you must be a communist.
Geoff in reply to Dewbert: The PM's chief of staff just got outted for breaking the govt's own rules.
They broke a bit of the story this morning, the govt has been desperately defending him all day, then this evening they broke the rest of the story. Which makes the whole Tory party look like a bunch of clowns (which, to be honest, isn't hard).
Geoff: Today is the anniversary of me being told that my kids' mother was found dead.
I still don't think part of me has forgiven myself for not being able to help her. Despite the fact that I did more than any rational human being would have if they weren't getting paid for it.
The rest of me just wades in with this.
