Always wary of whinging on here, but I haven’t had more than 3/4 hrs broken sleep in over a week and it’s beyond a joke at this stage. 😩 #insomnia
Also, thanks to the lovely people offering advice, but I've tried everything over the last 25 years. It's just the way it is. Only posted it as it's important to share shit stuff too. Wait, what? It's NOT important to share shit stuff?? #delete

A thread: Getting a lot of messages about censorship of certain social media accounts and websites, how “dangerous” this is for freedom of speech & how we all need to make up our own minds. Sigh. When I was a kid (pre-internet), my parents bought us a set of encyclopedia books
It was a big deal to have them, they were expensive, paid for month by month, but meant we didn’t have to trot off to the library every time we needed information on something. Our friends would come over to use them too, you’d get a call from someone who had to do a project on
Egypt (usually by tomorrow) & they’d pop over to plagiarise the section on Pharaohs and pyramids and we’d crack out the biscuit tin. I remember the scandal when Britannica had to admit to an occasional typo or date error in any of their books – they were so well fact-checked that
