The TV show "For All Mankind" also did this weird thing where they had a fictional Soviet moon landing featuring a real male cosmonaut, and then a second one with a fictional female cosmonaut.

The actual first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, wasn't mentioned until the second season - her accomplishment erased by a show that's ostensibly about women's empowerment.

Such a gross weird piece of American propaganda

You go for a bike ride.. Suddenly, your google location data is requested by the police.. Because on your path there was a burglary, and you've been close, so you become a suspect.. You have only 7 days to object in a court..

Happening, as the @TheGuardian reports 👇

Nick makes such great content, hope it gets resolved. He's been so supportive of TILvids for a long time, please spread the word to support him, and check him out on #tilvids if you want to catch his great content while it's not available on YouTube!

#Switzerland's reputation of being a privacy haven is unjustified.

I visited Switzerland last week, and *all* public wifi hotspots require SMS verification. Apparently, it's a legal requirement.

Come on, even Italy stopped doing that long time ago!
