@traskjd I guess it depends on which measure. From a sheer uptake point of view, yeah probably. But it seems to have hit its straps as a safer, more inclusive community for minorities and people who just want to play nice, so from that point of view, I think it's been more of a success.

Help me with some Japanese? What does 心の病 mean? Mental illness?

Very fun win tonight at cricket despite being a player down. My field work sucked but at least the batting made up for it. 🏏

Apparently there's a really surprising number of people out there who genuinely (seem to) believe in a flat earth.
I mean, I knew about that "Flat Earth Society"; I just didn't think it would be popular. At all. By any reasonable measure.
Some people are really fucking mental!!

@Elizafox It's a good thing to express that stuff. Being sad and internalising negative thoughts will only reinforce that single train of thought. You have people here who want to build you up and support you.

Two more exciting games of cricket! Two clinical wins in two games. 🏏
Bloody cold though

@Elizafox It's really cold this week. 😁 metservice.com/towns-cities/du

And bear in mind these temperature forecasts are optimistic and in degrees celcius.

Two brilliant back-to-back games of cricket tonight. Both comfortable wins! Plus feeling very satisfied with my field game too, with a 5 wicket bag! Happy vibes.
