I don't want to know about half of the things (probably more) I find in the Lounge, but you don't see me bitching about it
Anyway, I thought it was funny that one of the biggest tech companies in the world maybe made a boo-boo in one of their recommender algorithms, but it seems the term "Facebook" on CP works like red to a bull
I believe it was someone's iTunes that recommended a lot of hip-hop artists after a user was listening to Cattle Decapitation all day. So Apple made a funny too, they might have improved the algorithm though - I don't use Apple products so I wouldn't know.
But I do agree that Facebook often makes these kind of "mistakes". They aren't too successful in recommending music for my taste, not to mention the friends they always recommend, since I "only" have about 150 people on Facebook.
Peterhouse Cambridge has to be my favourite team of all time. They look clueless, they act clueless, they dither and dally, they start badly (minus scores are not unknown), their captain lets it all swill and swish around her as if she's orbiting another planet and yet they have just reached the final. I thoroughly recommend a trip to IPlayer* to catch up on the entertainment!

But do you? Large parts of the present USA never were British colonies, of course. And nobody who lives outside the regular broadcasting reach of the BBC can seriously believe there's nothing wrong with where they live.
We do have TV channels that broadcast some BBC and other British stuff, including a daily newscast. I cannot say that such access to British TV has a significant influence on my quality of life.
However, I have spent some time in England and must admit I quite enjoyed it. It's the simple things one remembers, like a daily pint of bitter at the nearest pub or a pound's worth of fish & chips, seasoned with salt and vinegar, and served in a cone of plain white paper. Nobody makes chips like the English do.
It's good to be loyal to your own country. I quite appreciate and understand your position.
Last night I have attended what manner of previous thread asking advises.
I have brought a simple gift card and male friend.
We ran far away earlier because after a few drink the women played a game. Diapers microwawed with chocolate candy They pretended to be poop and hurt my ears laughing. The game was to smell it and guess correctly the brand, or be given more drink.

Reminds me of an old joke.
How dow you make a dead baby float?
