Good day to all of you lovely people! Happy Thursday and welcome to our weekly Cross Thread shared across Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, CrossTalk, Gawrker, and The Salad Bowl. Pull up a chair, get yourself a nice drink, and have some conversations!

(I’d host this on our sister sites for variety, though I only have authorship at Oppo.)

I’m on a bit of a “fun fact” craze right now. It’s amazing how many YouTubers are basically making mini-documentaries on pretty much everything! Here is one of my favourites right now.

I’m still counting down the days until the 24th when I fly on one of these adorable ERJ-175s (in United livery) to Pittsburgh.

How is everyone doing? I’ve been monitoring the storms hitting the eastern US and I hope everyone is okay!

What’s new? What’s weird? Have any amazing stories to tell? Find out, in today’s Cross Thread!
