Just so I'm understanding this correctly ... the whole fuss is because millions of people think if they can't get news on Facebook they can't get it at all? They are not aware that news sites have their own actual web sites? Let alone other global and highly-respected news aggregators. Like :ff:.

It seemed a bit of weird fight to me until I considered that.

But it still seems like Facebook has already won, and would have kept winning if they could just have resisted being too greedy. Yes no?

It'll be interesting to see how it plays out, for sure.

fb is pretty Anglo, though. Lots of places have their own social media sites. Let's roll us a CANZUK one. c:

Fucker got back to earth.

This article:
Why does Jeff Bezos's rocket look like that? An inquiry | Space | The Guardian
is a masterpiece of circumlocution.

They describe it as "anthropomorphic". They use the words "shaft" and "cylinder", and "bulbous" and "dome". But they avoid using the actual expression:

Amazon fights high warehouse turnover with offer of free college tuition | Ars Technica

Quote:
As Amazon struggles to staff its warehouses, it’s joining other large employers by offering to pay for college tuition in an attempt to attract and retain hourly employees.

The e-commerce giant announced Thursday that it would be broadening its education benefits by offering more than 750,000 employees the opportunity to attend college or finish high school for free. Employees only have to work at the company for 90 days to be eligible, and if they leave, they do not have to reimburse Amazon for any tuition or fees paid during their time with the company.
That's ever so kind of you, Mr. Amazon sir. You treat us so well, Mr Amazon sir. Can I work some more hours, Mr Amazon sir? God bless you!
