In the UK at the moment, the average household consumes 3,731 kWh of electricity in a year. That comes to 10.23 kWh per day. So wouldn’t it be smarter — and fairer — to subsidise consumption up to that level, and let households which consume more face the market rate? And pay for the subsidy by a windfall tax on energy companies.

It won’t happen, of course, for the simple reason that it’s ‘unthinkable’.

Huge congratulations to @WonderbagO on their nomination for the @FoodPlanetPrize. Proud to have interviewed Sarah Collins way back when. https://www.eatthispodcast.com/welcome-to-the-wonderbag/

This is very bad news for me. On the one foot, NB 624s are the only sneaker-type shoes that come in a width that accommodates my misshapen feet. On the other, I'm reluctant to add to the CEO's profits. Recommend another brand, please.

Decision, decisions: is a touchbar on an M2 MacBook Pro worth €100? That’s the price difference from an M2 MBA, and the MBP has a slightly smaller screen and weighs 160 gm more. I’ve never seen anyone rave about a touchbar. So, what’s the deal? All thoughts welcome.
