I think this, no, I hope this is the latest Private Eye front cover.

Någon grävde av en fiberkabel igår kväll, och nu säger AllTele att de inte tror att det inte är fixat förrän på måndag. Tur man har backupnät.

I'm stunned.
This is not a joke. This is the honest-to-Cthulhu name of the "health care" law the Republicans want to replace the ACA with.

"The World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017."

I mean, maybe it is a joke, and having come to the conclusion that they can't actually think of a law better than the ACA -- it having been a tough compromise as it was, and largely been stolen from Republican ideas in the first place -- the best they can do is offer a law that's strictly worse across the board, as an opening move to trying to negotiate to put in actual fixes to the ACA.

(Which, I'll note, every single major government program in history has required. The odds of getting a complicated thing perfectly right on the first shot are zero; but the ACA hasn't been able to get any of the obvious patches, because ever since it was passed, Congressional Republicans refused to consider any patches other than repeal. They had banked so heavily on opposing it that the only viable political option was for it to fail, and so they tried to make it do so. When it stubbornly refused to -- when a lot of Americans started getting access to health care for the first time, and people were no longer having nightmares about their spouses dying of cancer because they were forced to change health plans and it was now suddenly a non-covered "pre-existing condition" -- they were stuck with the fact that they actually had to make it work, or they would have some seriously pissed-off constituents. But they've been promising to destroy it for so long that they seriously don't know what to do.

And apparently, having run out of other ideas, they've turned to simply trolling the public with the World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017.)

Composing Unicode emojis in javascript the combiner "\u200D" (ZERO WIDTH JOINER) is fun. Try permutations of "👨\u200D👩\u200D👧\u200D👦", to form family compositions like 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦, for instance. Supported ones in macOS 10.12 Sierra:

👨‍👩‍👦 Family: Man, Woman, Boy
👨‍👩‍👧 Family: Man, Woman, Girl
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Family: Man, Woman, Girl, Boy
👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 Family: Man, Woman, Boy, Boy
👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 Family: Man, Woman, Girl, Girl
👨‍👨‍👦 Family: Man, Man, Boy
👨‍👨‍👧 Family: Man, Man, Girl
👨‍👨‍👧‍👦 Family: Man, Man, Girl, Boy
👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 Family: Man, Man, Boy, Boy
👨‍👨‍👧‍👧 Family: Man, Man, Girl, Girl
👩‍👩‍👦 Family: Woman, Woman, Boy
👩‍👩‍👧 Family: Woman, Woman, Girl
👩‍👩‍👧‍👦 Family: Woman, Woman, Girl, Boy
👩‍👩‍👦‍👦 Family: Woman, Woman, Boy, Boy
👩‍👩‍👧‍👧 Family: Woman, Woman, Girl, Girl
👨‍👦 Family: Man, Boy
👨‍👦‍👦 Family: Man, Boy, Boy
👨‍👧 Family: Man, Girl
👨‍👧‍👦 Family: Man, Girl, Boy
👨‍👧‍👧 Family: Man, Girl, Girl
👩‍👦 Family: Woman, Boy
👩‍👦‍👦 Family: Woman, Boy, Boy
👩‍👧 Family: Woman, Girl
👩‍👧‍👦 Family: Woman, Girl, Boy
👩‍👧‍👧 Family: Woman, Girl, Girl

So far, you can not compose single-character all-adult families, or families with more than two adults or kids. :-) See also:

Jag gillar min Huawei-klocka skarpt, utom just att det är hopplöst att sätta den i laddaren. Och jag verkar inte vara ensam.

Det här är något jag också brukar försöka påpeka när jag granskar testkod.

Det glädjer mig att SJ fortsätter att utveckla sin redan utmärkta app. Minns med fasa den gamla appen.
