I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
I've got a series of blog posts going into the structural details of different knitting stitches. Today I posted an explanation of the structure of m1 (the increase that involves lifting and knitting the bar between two stitches on the row below.)
Milkshake, whoop whoop!
Or you know,
someone does it the German way: Slapping both palms on to your upper thighs/knees and saying "SO.", while getting up.
I like video conferencing for the most part, but the end of them always feels awkward. "Anyone got something to say? No? Okay then good bye? yes? okay? bye!"
Or maybe I'm just bad at wrapping things up which I think I may be.
But I do think in a physical meeting it is getting more obvious that people are agreeing that this is wrapping up. Closing laptops/notebooks, packing away pens, finishing your coffee/water, people getting restless etc.

US, vaccines, conspiracies
Actually - less than half, 46%, were sure that the above statement is DEFINITELY FALSE.
You can look at the data here: https://docs.cdn.yougov.com/w2zmwpzsq0/econTabReport.pdf
n was 1500.
US, vaccines, conspiracies
20 % of us American adults think that the statement "The U.S. government is using the COVID-19 vaccine to microchip the population" is definitely or probably true, an additional 14 % aren't sure.
In other words, in 3 people, only 2 are sure that they aren't getting micro-chipped with a vaccine.
THIS. IS. WILD.
Had my first fall with the bike, if you could call it that... I lost my balance when I wanted to start on a somewhat steep and uneven ground. Despite kinda falling over in slow motion, scratched up my elbow and already developed quite a big bruise where the bike fell on me. It looks scary but I just bruise so easily!

Fatness, link to music video
I hope that in a couple of years, videos like this feel less revolutionary. They still do for me. https://youtu.be/N1u1FD5c4GI
Tiktok link, pronouns
I can only appreciate it when people write banger songs just for the fun of it.
