Meanwhile in the UK a newsreader has been criticised for saying a teenager who broke a Tetris record should "go outside" and "get some fresh air".

After showing the clip, she turned to the camera and said: "As a mother, I would just say step away from the screen. Go outside, get some fresh air. Beating Tetris is not a life goal".

^^^ Seems a very catty remark to me. Goodness, there is so much else she could critizise, with good reason. And she chose this. Sigh.

Meanwhile in the UK, if we get more than 30mph wind, 10mm of rain or snow, then the whole country’s infrastructure starts to strain, we get weather warnings of doom….after all we aren’t used to such “extremes” here :roll:

It’s currently about minus 20 Celsius where I live, and it’s too cold for my liking. I don’t go out more than I have to.
