Normal weddings are fucking embarrassing

Got a call recently from Magenta trying to sell me slightly faster internet connectivity.

They constantly lie that they have fibre connectivity (Glasfasernetz) which for normal people means FTTH/FTTB, not that the core internet infrastructure runs on fibre (which Magenta means). That has been the case for every ISP everywhere since at least the early 2000s.

I’m constantly amazed how bad broadband is in Austria.

It’s so bad that a lot of people skip wired internet connectivity entirely and just go with unlimited 4G plans.

The first of two weddings in two days starts today.

M'aiq wants nothing to do with Daedra. He hears they can make trees burn forever. How can they do that?

M'aiq speaks with many in his travels. After a time, they seem to repeat themselves. Strange.

M'aiq finds Dark Elves to be quite pleasant. One offered him a matching set of bracelets, but he declined.

And one of the lil bandits would say

“Whatsa kohl meiner?”

If I ever will have grandkids, I’ll tell them that the internet has been mainstream for 20 years and there were still coal miners in 2020

And they’ll be like “stop making shit up grandpa, you’re going senile”

I’m asking because I don’t know what to think atm and I’m wondering about different perspectives and well reasoned arguments
