Blight upon you, Google, for fucking this up

So we took the upgrade onto Android 12 for my phone. It’s just nice, much has already been said about it so not going to repeat any of that. We do have one bone to pick and it is that the youtube app is now permanently installed onto the phone and it ignores any of the preferences you had set in Android 11. It just so happens we have NewPipe as my preferred app cos Reasons. Here’s my workaround for that.

Disable youtube app

  1. Go to SettingsAppsSee All Apps.
  2. Scroll to YouTube, tap it.
  3. Tap disable. Android will put up a warning to scare you.
    YouTube App Info on Android 12
  4. Tap Disable app.

Re-enable newpipe permissions and links

  1. Tap back out to All Apps.
  2. Scroll to NewPipe.
  3. Tap Open by default.
  4. Enable Open supported links.
  5. In the list of Links to open in this app, enable the ones you want. We got lazy so we just enabled everything.
    NewPipe supported links
  6. Exit out to your home screen.

There, you can now enjoy youtube videos in Android 12 without youtube trying to ram any of its paid options down your throat every other video.

i would literally never play this game again if that happened to me

What the fuck just happened?

A slaughter.

The strategy is called FEAR. Basically, the Ratata has a focus Sash on, so when the enemy hits the level 1 Ratata, it’ll survive with one HP left. The Ratata uses Endeavor on that turn, which brings the opponent’s HP to 1 too. Unless the enemy also has a Speed ignoring move, Ratata’s quick attack will go first, chipping that last HP off. FEAR is generally understood as Focus sash Endeavor, quick Attack Ratata, but could also be known by Fucking Evil Attack Ratata.

People really out here not knowing about FEAR, smh

For the longest time I thought FEAR was the video game series.

We were so, so very wrong.

Fuck Jacob Frey too

After settling in, we spotted a small crowd of people circled around the boy mayor himself, Jacob Frey. Immediately, we felt like this event highlighted everything wrong in this damn city. After producers of the exhibit and folks at NAZ spoke, Jacob Frey got up to give one of the most Jacob Frey speeches I’ve ever heard—and as folks around me applauded while he got on stage, I booed.

We kinda wanted to go to that exhibit but we couldn’t put a finger on it. This article points right at what we couldn’t see.
