Let's check Tinder. Match with a pretty hot 27 year old. Has to be fake.
I did put new pictures up, though. I found out that Tinder lets you upload photos directly from your phone's hard drive now. In the past, you had to first upload to Facebook. I don't know why. I also don't know why you need a Facebook account to make a Tinder account. I guess they're piggybacking on Facebook's anti-fake account technology but what exactly is this technology? I created a fake account no problem. I guess they probably want you to use a phone number to create an account now. So there's that small obstacle. Have to buy a new £5 sim card every time you want to have a new Facebook account. I'm sure there are ways around this, though.
So yeah, I had to create a Facebook account just for Tinder which is bullshit. I used a fake name and put all the pictures in private but what a giant hassle. I just want to upload pictures with ease. Now you can do that with Tinder.
I read complaints like "Oh, now Tinder is going to be full of fake profiles". There's two problems with that.
1. It's always been full of fake profiles
2. Being upload directly from your phone instead of first uploading to Facebook and then to Tinder doesn't make things any less prone to fakeness. You can upload fake pictures to Facebook.
So it was just a cumbersome and ridiculous extra step that prevented me from uploading new pictures because it's just such a pain in the ass. Anyway, my pictures are still bad but at least they're new.
I should take a picture next time I go to Ayr. The sheriff court is an old, impressive, yet quaint little building in between a little park with statues and shit and the coast. It's postcard quality scenery.
I considered taking a photo in front of every sheriff court I go to but most of them aren't impressive and I look a bit stupid taking pictures in front of courts. Just generally, you look stupid taking pictures of yourself. So that's the problem with getting more pictures. My lack of associates and my self-consciousness about taking photos of myself in public.
What else? Crusader Kings 2. Still playing. Up to the year 1100. It hasn't been interesting for some centuries but I recently joined a war to bring back the elective monarchy so that was entertaining. War went on for ten years and was a rousing success. Of course, in a few years they'll just bring back gavelkind and it will be back to hereditary rule.
Why do the other dukes and whatnot agree to this? They're not in the monarch's dynasty. They have no chance of becoming king if it goes back to gavelkind. Well, whatever. At least I tried.
