It's a great read but holy fuck Twitter isn't the place for it, hopefully there'll be an unroll or something.

There’s something in the delivery style of John Oliver, David Baddiel and Tom Scott that just makes me recoil. Stop shouting. Nothing you are saying is that sensational and you shouldn’t replace content with volume.

I can manage Tom Scott in those little 4 minute youtube vids he does, but he was on Only Connect once and was the most annoying human ever.

I often wonder how she feels about him. I hope she inwardly despises him.

Weird - if you asked me I'd have said that i had *something* that was called Snesticle in the early emulation days (I definetly remember Nesticle) , but i guess just a hazy memory

The waypoint article has a bit more background on this :

I thought this project might be of interest to some of you. It's a 3D modelled arcade that you can walk around and play any game you want, it has both videogames and fruit machines in it.

App that lets you save articles for later to read offline. But seems to (usually) pull in entire new Yorker articles, even if the New Yorker is asking you to sign up.

Two other sites which will bypass are :

https://12ft.io/

Which seems to have weird arrangements to not unblock some companies sites

and

https://www.printfriendly.com/

Which just gives you just about any webpage as a PDF and again bypasses most paywalls
