Am I wrong to be bothered by o-called sceptics who don't fact check their quotations? sheesh Mark Twain, Einstein, Benjamin Franklin etc. etc. never said a lot of things people quote him on! People on the bird land and faeces book are the worst at that. ;)

I suppose I really should have an instance on bsd.network

What to do if you see antisocial benchs that are supposed to don't let people lay down to rest in order to increase gentrification?

Repair them!

The idea that you can solve homelessness by making benches hard to sleep on is stupid, and indicative of the kind of gormless wingnuttery in contemporarty mainstream politics.

@sonicbooming *unsolicited advice incoming*
You could contact a women's shelter & see if they could use any of your old devices. Even some older phones don't need a SIM to call 911. Then you can hope they never get used again (if you catch my meaning).

Feeling better. Not good. But better.

Get your flu shot. I did, and I still got sick. But a whole bunch of kids and >50s in my town are freaking hospitalized. Vaccination can reduce the severity of symptoms.

Remember that story about polio survivors who need iron lungs being left out in the cold by the company responsible for the devices?

There's a good follow-up.

"Armed with scanners and 3D-printers, computer experts, hobbyists and hardware fiddlers are determined to fix the problem."

"Lillard and her cohort might be the last of the Iron Lungs, but they're unlikely to be the last getting vital healthcare support from the maker community."

🇬🇧 I'm still searching for radio amateurs on mastodon, by the way.

🇩🇪 Ich suche übrigens noch nach Funkamateuren auf mastodon.

🇸🇪 Jag letar fortfarande efter radio amatörer på mastodon, för övrigt.

🇱🇺 Ik zoek overigens nog naar zendamateurs op mastodon.
