I don't know why it wasn't mentioned in this article, but it is widely assumed that Sweden's bid will fly through the ratification process in Turkey as soon as it's called. That's part of the reason he hasn't called it: he's got an election coming up. He's trying to show what a strong leader he is, getting the northern Europeans to do things on his terms, while also hoping to get rid of a few old political rivals and enemies who have taken shelter there. It'll probably pass quickly after the election, no matter who wins.

The place where I live, electricity is cheap, and my house doesn't have any gas lines. Every time that I 'chat' about household appliances, heating, etc this bot keeps insisting that natural gas is very important and the way to go. It's weird. Here's my favourite interaction so far:

"For example, a high-efficiency gas-fired boiler may have an efficiency rating of 90% or more, which means that 90% of the energy in the fuel is converted into usable heat.

In contrast, electric boilers have a much lower efficiency rating, typically in the range of 95% to 100%."
