"I've lied on my CV for over 30yrs and
  climbed the greasy pole on the strength of it.
  Last week I signed off a 3Bn++ IT project that
  I really don't understand. I've only got a
  BTEC." (It's how everything is run. Idiots from
  the bottom to the top and 1 person in ten
  frantically trying to unfuck the chaos.)"

This website is wonderful.  And scary.

given we are all in lockdown (except when I have to see patients, which is quite a lot), I shall give away my two favourite sources of sites I steal stuff from and pass off as my own.

I fell down a rabbit hole on this one yesterday.

https://www.mustgo.com/worldlanguages/

I found the Language Learning Difficulty part of the website particularly fascinating. Sorry Papa, there's no data on how tough it is to learn Welsh.  Polish is considered Category II, though.

Shamelessly stolen from Clay's FB post. A map of the world's radio stations-click on a dot for the station to listen. Go Radio Zimbabwe!

There's an island in the Indian Ocean that the indigenous population say is shaped like a young maiden carrying flowers back from the market on a summer morning. As the above picture clearly shows, Sheppey is shaped like 37,000 useless pieces of shit floating in a swamp. Actually, to be fair, not everyone on Sheppey is a useless piece of shit. Many of them have jobs, and some of them are even learning to read. The ones who reach such dizzy heights usually leave the island and then disown their families. Their new found knowledge of the world drives them on to seek out new lifestyles that might include things like cinemas, book shops, hospitals, and intelligent conversation: all of which were outlawed on Sheppey shortly after the reformation.
