Pints on Revolut 🍺💳

What an evening in Wembley! Karma for booing during the Italian national anthem…
C’mere to me…
Revolut Buying People Pints 🍺💳
In a clever marketing move, if you replied to Revolut on Twitter yesterday, with a picture of your card wherever you were watching the Euros from, they’d send you £4.50 or a ‘pint on them’, which is pretty sound.
Remember the Ever Given?
You might remember the Ever Given, the ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal last March, well it hasn’t been able to properly leave since…
The ship was effectively impounded by the Egyptians and it was only on Wednesday of last week, after the Suez Canal Authority eventually reached an undisclosed compensation agreement with the ship’s owners, did it finally began its journey home.
“In April, Egyptian authorities obtained a court order to detain the ship and argued the ship’s owners owed them $916 million in losses, a claim that the UK P&I Club called “largely unsupported.” Egypt later amended that claim to about $550 million.”
The crew aboard, many from India, have been stuck on the ship the entire time, away from their families for months. Of course, these crews would expect to be away for weeks and months at a time, but this was, obviously, a completely unscheduled delay, of well over 100 days at that!
This video by Johnny Harris has quite the title & thumbnail, “Was Covid Created in a Lab?”, but I assure you that this is not some conspiracy theory, rather it’s a very well-researched look at the two leading hypotheses about where we think Covid-19 originated and why we still don’t actually know.
It really does seem that a lab leak is far more likely than initially reported at the beginning of the pandemic, a huge element of which was influenced by the political situation at the time. This is especially because, over a year on, scientists have yet to find anything conclusive on the animal transmission theory for our particular coronavirus.
28 mins, but it’s worth a watch.
If meddling kids and a stoner dog are what foiled your criminal scheme, you probably weren't going to get away with it in the end anyways
That’s all 🤙🏽
