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.

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

    I love Golden Brown. Instantly captivating song.

    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.
