An Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopaceus) spotted from the balcony on the last day of the COVID-19 Circuit Breaker (stay-at-home) in Singapore.

Hey, not my fault if noisy wildlife decides to pop up near to me. 🙂

Asian Koels are brood parasites of local Crows and are locally 'notorious' for making loud calls (sometimes early in the morning) that can be heard over traffic noise.

Are you planning to attend a protest? Protecting your electronic devices and digital assets before, during, and after a protest is vital to keeping yourself and your information safe, as well as getting your message out.

We shouldn't punish a company more than necessary for making a mistake, but at the same time, companies won't stop making mistakes for as long as we reward them for reversing course more than we do for not making mistakes.

Never screw up: yeah, that's okay.

Screw up, revert, apologize: hells yeah, that's how everybody should do business.

Bad incentive structure.

i am only _very_ slightly kidding on this

all the cops that were involved and their supervisors who authorized it need to lose their jobs and never work in a position of trust again

arresting journalists is something that you do just before the atrocities that you don't want videotaped begin

So my mother's friend's husband is stuck in a hotel in Saudi Arabia and this is the order menu they gave him

Do I have any Arabic speaking followers that can help make sense of this but also, tag yourself, I'm "Normal doubt"

Happy #Towelday everybody!

Remember that a towel is about the most massively useful thing.

One of the many use cases that might be of interest nowadays is to "wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes"

It doesn't have to be fumes, it could be droplets or aerosols as well.
