Came back from my partner's doctor appt earlier, got to our building elevators and some guy who was waiting with us went and got in first then invited us in after - my partner was in her wheelchair so we decided to wait rather than try squeeze in. Shaking his head, he LAUGHED at us as he went off. Not sure what he got such a kick out of and found funny, but the prick cackled all the way up in the glass elevator - at least I gave him the finger as he did.

One of these is considered so dangerous by the government that there are laws mandating that both speed and watt limits be baked into the controller. The other one can go as fast as the operator damn well pleases, but is merely *expected* to slow down when appropriate.

Also, one of these kills people every day and is very hard to see children or short adults in front of you when you're operating it.

Guess which is which.

Phew, not just me being a dumbass then haha! Thank you so much for developing this and being so helpful with responses. We need apps like these for the Fediverse! So cool. Thanks again!

@mediaformat Thanks for your response over on Twitter! The FediEmbedi app is just what I was hoping for, so firstly, thank you! To answer your question, I'm on WordPress 6.0 using Neve theme. As mentioned, I am probably being really dumb and missing something here, but these are screenshots of the widget in place, and what it looks like on my website bottom right (even if I input different account details).

#OtD 3 Jun 1980 the world as we know it nearly ended when computers at the Strategic Air Command falsely indicated that Russian nuclear missiles were headed for the US and bombers were ordered to take off. Fortunately the order was cancelled 3 min later

If you're in the UK, have a lighter ready - there's a lot more butcher's aprons on display than usual for something called "The Queen's Jubilee."
