The football team I've followed since I was eleven have just, in the last few minutes, won the League One title, and with it promotion to the Championship, English football's second tier.

You don't have to get sport, but please understand that this means a lot to me.

Play up, Pompey! Pompey, play up!

@DJDarren as a life-long Skate, I wouldn't mind at all if your lot go up to the Premier as well. The derbies are always hideous.

@janettespeyer I doubt it. Iran doesn't benefit from that, and they've made it known that this attack "will be designed to avoid escalating conflict". But that doesn't mean it isn't fucking stupid and dangerous.

A man who rode on a horse to deliver somebody’s Uber Eats order has been banned from working.

A video of Stanley Chen riding the animal in Sydney, Australia, was posted to social media earlier this week.

What! I'd pay extra for that service! 🐎🌯

@Tattooed_Mummy he should set up his own business. Has "Pony Express" lapsed?

People on Twitter are debating whether a person using uncommon words like "delve" are trying to sound smarter than they are, or worse, are ChatGPT bots, because "normal" people don't talk like that.

You don't have to get upset, or embroiled in the debate. Not worth the time or attention. But I'll share some important context as your friendly neighborhood Nigerian 🙋🏿‍♂️

Many Nigerians have bigger English language vocabularies and better command of grammar than the typical American or English person

@mekkaokereke it's also an issue for autistic people whose spectrum includes hyperlexia, like me. We read so early that some teachers don't believe us, and I doubt I'm the only one whose vocabulary broke tests. But we all have different challenges.

Today's stream is totally not sponsored by crumpets! Delicious, tasty, toasted crumpets.
A variety of topping choices can be used from Nutella to jams & preserves as well as the humble, classic butter.

Don't you think you deserve a tasty, toasted treat?

Having one of those moments where I’m fascinated by the optimism of 1950s/60s brutalist architecture, and how it juxtaposes with how much of it looks now.

Found this website that has some wonderful photos of brutalist buildings when they were new, and clean - https://www.somethingconcreteandmodern.co.uk

@DJDarren what do you think of the paint job they've given it?

@shinydan@mendeddrum.org avatar

Given that this is a reboot year for Wales, a BP loss at Twickenham is a decent enough result. I'd have loved the win, of course, but if we learned anything from the World Cup, it's that this England wins games they don't deserve to. #ENGvWAL #LLOvCYM #rugby @rugby #6NationsM

A very bitty second half. But England have not put this beyond Welsh reach. #ENGvWAL #LLOvCYM #rugby @rugby #6NationsM

That is a pretty clear yellow. Damn. #ENGvWAL #LLOvCYM #rugby @rugby #6NationsM

Fair play, and the first time all day that England have looked like England in attack. But not enough to lead.... #ENGvWAL #LLOvCYM #rugby @rugby #6NationsM

A young Wales beating a sloppy England by nine at the half? I'd have taken that this morning. Lovely stuff. #ENGvWAL #LLOvCYM #rugby @rugby #6NationsM

@joshourisman @rugby especially now that JPR and the King are eligible, Heaven Welsh v Asgard XV would be a hell of a fixture.
