  1. Something that clicked for me today that hasn't come up in the show yet, but we now know that the best human to have ever lived in the last 500 years was Mindy St. Claire.
  2. The treaty I'm talking about is the Good Friday Agreement, not whatever withdrawal treaty may happen. Anything that closes the Irish border violates that treaty, and while it is technically legal for countries to walk away from treaties if they want to, leaving that one unilaterally will have consequences no one wants. I'm aware that most British people, myself included, generally don't give a monkey's about Northern Ireland, I would prefer that the government was smart enough to realise that The Troubles starting up again would be bad. As for being "trapped" in the backstop, there's several ways out of it, the two ends being keeping the UK in the customs union at one end, and putting the customs border in the Irish sea (or even the actual border if a border poll happens and the nationalists win) at the other. And I'd bet that as soon as there's a government that doesn't need Northern Irish support to stay in power, one of those things will happen very quickly.
  3. The whole point of the backstop is that it's the absolute minimum necessary for the UK to meet its treaty obligations under the Good Friday Agreement. Leaving the backstop without the EU agreeing that what we're leaving it for is also "good enough" means the government's probably violating an international treaty, and that's just asking for Trouble.

    Moving Right Alolan - More Pokemon Go!

    I can only see that happening if they up the level cap and bring in new features for level 45 or 50 only.
  6. The best scene in this film is the Stan Lee cameo. Couldn't have been more appropriate if they'd tried.

    I think Budew is egg-only at the moment. Buizel is in the wild as well, but rare.
  8. Shows you how big it was - if they're in Hyde Park then they still haven't got to the official start of the march route. The speeches were finished long before I got Parliament Square, and I'm pretty sure from where I started there were more people behind me than in front of me.

    I got a Tangela out of one, which is weird.

    I think so - the contents of an egg are determined when you get the egg, not when you hatch it.

    It did for me. I evolved the Umbreon late in an evening, then span a Pokestop and it counted as the first day of that quest.

    Of course Brexit means that we're going to stay in the Dark Ages on this while the rest of the continent moves on without us.
