Cannot find certain app on Yalp Store

So I’ve been trying to find Fortnite on the Yalp Store, with and without Tor, but have had no luck. I’ve tried changing my location multiple times, but still nothing. Has anyone else had trouble finding apps that should be on the Play Store?

Advice for sites that require cookies

I’m seeking advice on how to get past sites that require cookies when I have them disabled? If this is not the right place to post, it would be greatly appreciated if you had a better suggestion on where to tern for this advice.I use a VPN, FF nightly (with container tabs) and uBlock Origin as my main tools set to get around the web (among others). On top of some strict browser settings and advanced mode for uBlock where I pretty much block all and allow only what is needed. This has resulted in some sites forbidding me to view it without allowing cookies to be set.I have seen some questionable plug-ins that say they allow you to get around any site lightbox overlays. Or sometimes I’ll open up the web inspector and try to manually do it. Which doesn’t always work. I have mostly the same setup on mobile which is where this becomes more of an issue. Does anyone know of other/better ways to address this?

Freaky coincidence or something more?

So I last week I was walking around the mall when I spotted a crinkled dollar bill on the ground. I checked to make sure there wasn’t anyone around that may have dropped it. There wasn’t, so I picked it up and pocketed it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, it was just $1 so not really a big deal.That night, I was perusing SnapChat when I saw a Sponsored Story called Bitmoji Stories. I clicked it curiously and was speechless when it showed my Bitmoji avatar walking down the street, spotting a dollar, looking around, and picking up the dollar.Granted, this is fairly common occurrence so it may very well just be a coincidence.But I’m curious: Has anyone else had this Bitmoji Stories or a similar app depict an event that actually happened to them?P.S. I have checked all the Bitmoji Stories since then. They have all been random and completely unrelated to anything I’ve done.
