@deafferret like some people have projects where they make things but the output is circles that are tightly placed together, clustered. It freaks me out when I see circles really close together like that and I know a few others do as well.
Here's a few guidelines for supporting striking workers:
Hello! It is now May in the northern hemisphere. I think you have become confused which hemisphere gets snow during the winter, and which gets snow during the summer.
Finland is supposed to get snow during the winter. You did not give us any snow during last winter, which was ... difficult to deal with.
It is now May, as I said before, and this is the third time this month you have snowed. Stop it. It isn't going to last, because it is too warm right after the clouds part. Just stop it.
Snow in Finland during the winter half.
Not during the summer half.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Well fuck. It's a month later.
Projection as of today: USA: 134K dead (not 60K). We peaked out at 65K beds needed (not 95K). Bed capacity estimates removed from the site. The worst day is the most recent, on an UPWARD trajectory while the predictions say we should be past the worst (what??).
A week later, I'm still rocked by this response:
JILL LEPORE: So what we need after the apocalypse is nationalism?
Awareness like this is a sign of a life well lived.
RadioLab: Today, we look back at the items our Cold War era planners sought to save and we ask the question: In the year 2020, what objects would we preserve now?
All the efforts of critical-tech artists to demystify 'the cloud' and counter the narrative that tech is magic... unnecessary.
Turns out data centres in Taiwan require a certain brand of crisps to magically keep them running.
We might think our servers and black boxes run on some weird fucking magic shit but we got nothing on Taiwanese Kuai Kuai (乖乖) reliability engineering rituals.
Yup. I'm the old guy who can't keep up, suspects all this labeling isn't helping, simply wants people to be kind.
I cannot explain the tremendous amount of anger I have at these armed white protesters being allowed to do whatever they want, when I have permanent health problems from being beaten while acting as a medic in unarmed anti-imperialism/capitalism protests.
My shoulder always hurts, my lungs are all scarred, my eyes are fucked up, but sure, let's pretend like this country has rule of law.
I couldn't resist turning this tweet into a #comic : https://mobile.twitter.com/Bry_Mac/status/1250155077668605954
It was as good an excuse as any to experiment with the comics brush set. :)
To sum up:
-humans and gender and attraction are complicated and messy
-prescriptivist definitions are a load of rubbish and mostly don't take into account said complicatedness and messiness
-if you feel like bi is a helpful label to describe your experiences, congrats, you're bi
