Out of the Blue

For some reason the Overwatch website is currently redirecting to the Korean version of the website. The neat thing is that I can't seem to find the link to switch it back. I can machine translate the page to see the region options, but they don't change when I select USA. At this rate it may be easier to learn Korean to work that out than anything else. I don't know how things got this way, but I can suggest this as a great prank to play on a gamer friend. Or perhaps a gamer enemy is a better target, because right now I feel like whoever did this must hate me.

Resolves correctly to en-gb for me at the moment.

I had similar a few years back where every single website I visited said I was in the US, when I was definitely still sat in the UK, and it turned out that somehow a chunk of IP addresses used by my ISP were reverse looking up as being in the US. Made for some interesting new Netflix browsing for a month before I found out and got them to fix it!

I wish the media would shut the fucking fuck up about the goddamned Oscars bullshit already. Christ, it was front page news. Who gives a shit, really? You think it was a major fucking terrorist attack or something the way they're carrying on about how awful the whole thing was. Fuck those overpaid egomanical pricks. Christ, how many awards shows do they have for them now? Like one every other week?

Actually, unless Subway has started to sell sushi doughnuts, the Subway link is broken me thinks.

Real link for the subway chicken article is:

Subway Chicken Story

Apparently that site auto-changes the URL in the box as you scroll, so if the next story is at all on the page, it changes to that (which is what I'm assuming happened when Blue copied the link or something - giving us a sushi donut article from the same site)

I was stuck at a job and the client brought me chicken nuggets from the golden arches, they were disgusting, more nugget than chicken. But if you glopped on enough corn syrup disguised as sweet-n-sour sauce my pre-diabetes barely acted up.

Everyone knows that "Doctor's Associates Inc." dba SUBWAY are not actual medical doctors. But at least their bread is no longer made from space shuttle tiles (even though it tastes like it).
please pass the soy

Okay, clearly Netflix has dump trucks worth of money to toss around, they got Will Smith and that trailer actually looks pretty interesting.

It's because I removed the trailing part when posting the link to avoid "infecting" anyone else.

You click on a user's name, then for me it appears several lines below the "Limit results:" as a link labeled "Ignore this user"

For some reason, my ability to ignore a user has been disabled. The feature isn't available.

Works fine here with Version 56.0.2924.87.
It does not appear because you are not logged in when you go to the users page. As a test I opened an incognito window and there was no option to ignore, but it worked fine in a standard browser window when the Remember Me box is checked.

Bob, if you put everyone on ignore, the button won't show up anymore... Wait a minute, if we're ALL on ignore then he'll never see this post, nevermind
