It still feels weird experiencing an Android phone with a proper desktop,
even though I years before DeX used USB-OTG to do everything except the HDMI-MHL concurrently, as they would've used the sane port and phones still only have one USB-port.

Today, the report on what went wrong leading to the "largest wildfire in Sweden's history" and others was released, stating it was mostly lack of forest care..

Oh yeah... the crowns from the burial of Charles XI of Sweden were "probably" found near some trash bins in a paper bag marked "BOMB" yesterday.

Yeah, I don't know, but apparently there's something about my butt.
The only time as an adult I have struck someone in anger goes like this:
I was hanging out with a new friend I met at a club, but at the time of the last clubs closing, I had gotten quite annoyed at the keeping on fondling my butt, so I asked the guy to please stop... a whole bunch of times, starting at "or else I'm leaving" and eventually I went for "or else I will punch you", so the guy said "OK" and did it again, so I explained "I will punch you, right here" and pointed at the forehead and got fondled again, so... I punched (with and open hand) right in the forehead and the guy fell in a snow-pile,
so I helped the guy up and said goodbye and left.

Weird encounters in the nights...
