Mx Tynehorne鈥檚 link roundup, volume XV

A parked lorry, late at night, bearing the name "Discordia" on its side.
Seen on the way back home from Manchester 鈥 why on earth would you call your logistics company 鈥淒iscordia鈥? It鈥檚 like calling an airline 鈥淚carus鈥. Just asking for trouble.


  1. Slimy says鈥

    Someone once pointed out to me the strangeness of naming a chat client discord.

    I love Golden Brown. Instantly captivating song.

  2. Xanthe says鈥

    On the contrary, i would argue that Discord is in fact the perfect name for a yoof-focused chat app. It brings to mind 鈥渄iscussion鈥 and 鈥渄iscourse鈥, while still maintaining a wry, anarchic sense of humour about the whole affair (鈥渨ell, we know you鈥檙e just going to use it to get into fights鈥).

    God, i sound like Patrick Bateman.
