"I hope our dictator-to-be recovers so he can lose in an election" is a strange thing to hope for, considering all the other possibilities.

Still have minor issues like warping with PLA but for the most part I can just print things now. The glass bed was worth the effort. As long as I wipe the bed before a print I can almost ensure it sticks. Well, that and a good nozzle height.

Tinkering with my 3D Printer is addictive like tinkering with Vim is. Except, I actually get stuff done with my printer. Currently printing out modular drawers for my electronics components.

The Islamic Golden age produced huge leaps in mathematics, science, philosophy ect. The only reason the renaissance even happened was the preservation of Greek texts by Muslim scholars. The Eurocentric view of history deliberately is an ideological construct to discredit the progress of non whites as it conflicts with the narrative of them as barbarians who the white man must civilise

How cool would it be to buy a cheap motorbike and make my own E85?! Going E100 is harder since you need to modify the compression ratio and have heating coils for the fuel because cold starts don’t work.

My plan is to be able to grow a lot of food on the balcony by utilising vertical space. I’m really excited about it. The only downside is each module is going to take like 13 hours to print. So it’ll take a while to get a couple towers built.

Finally got myself a 3D printer so now a lot more of my projects are within reach than they were before. The Ender 3 is a really nice printer for it’s price too. One of my long standing goals has been to get into hydroponics and I’m going to print out several modular vertical hydroponic towers when I’m ready. Exciting stuff. :3

China’s racist and islamophobic repression of Uyghur life 

“the implementation of the ‘People’s War on Terror’ is manifested differently in China than the ‘war on terror’ elsewhere. It centers around a settler campaign that is facilitating the ongoing accumulation of natural resources from Uyghur lands. Accompanying this is a pervasive system of domination extending to all facets of Uyghur life.”

Watch them use this as an excuse to sell ultra sword and ultra shield or something by saying it has the full Pokédex.

Ugh. They did it again. You’ll only have access to Pokémon in the Galar region. You won’t be able to transfer in anything that isn’t in the game.

I don't have to pay for an FFXIV subscription anymore? I thought I was above the free levels.
