Kasparov on 🇷🇺 

"If Putin decides to push the button, I don't think he has Admirals and Generals that will authorize the strike. Again, can I bet my bottom dollar on this? No. But as I have said, it's not Chess. It is Poker, or Russian Roulette."

~ Garry Kasparov

This is worth sharing.

It's an animated GIF where every frame is a valid QR code that leads to the "Never Gonna Give You Up" rickroll.

That's kind of amazing.

All right, I've been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man whose gonna burn your house down - with the lemons!

Changes in the #Wikipedia's map of #Russian invasion in #Ukraine often are very small and difficult to notice. So I made an interface where you can cycle through them easily.

It also lets you *compare* two different versions to clearly see differences.

A background script runs every 2h to fetch new versions of the map. The page refreshes hourly.

Also, it uses zero #JavaScript. None. Not a single line. It's all HTML and CSS.

🇫🇷 election 

I can't help but slightly worry about the French election and the possibility of Le Pen winning. I mean she was going to use election material that had a photo of herself and Putin shaking hands on it.

One day in 2016 I was cutting the sleeves of a t-shirt when I realized it would be perfect to hold a baguette.

So, I printed the word and sewed it on to the back of a shirt.
Carry your bread in style.

2nd pic is my old friend Max modelling it.

Google's CAPTCHA is like trying to entertain the world's most insistent toddler:

"Find the boats!"

"Find the cars!"

"Where's the palm trees?"

"Do it again! Do it again!"

The white-blue-white flag seems legit, and is already banned by Russian authorities — which I must say is as good an endorsement as it gets:

Words that seems to ring especially true in these times.
