:crt_w_green_lines: I live in an ivory tower of abstractions, and use arcane sigils to coerce poisoned sand and lightning to do my bidding. This sometimes works as intended.

🦀 I'm a fan, been following it since before the 1.0 release, and it keeps getting better.

:blobcat: have a place in my heart. I'm a simple man, I see cat photos, I boost 'em.

📚 Reading is the best thing (after , of course)

is a fascinating subject, regardless if the subject is Ancient Rome, Mesopotamia or, most mysterious of all, the Late Bronze Age collapse (it was not just the Sea Peoples, okay?)

Ann Leckie, N.K. Jemisin, and Ursula K. LeGuin are gifts to humanity, and you owe yourself reading their delightful and works!

Asking for financial help, boosts encouraged 

Hey friends,

As you probably know I lost my job. I won’t get unemployment benefits until next month so I have no income this month. I’ve tried to manage my money to the best I can but unfortunately it’s still going to be real rough to get through October.

So yeah, I need money to make sure I’ll be able to pay my rent, and to make sure I’ll be able to afford food.

I would appreciate any financial help I can get, even if it’s only a little bit.

You can donate to me through PayPal:

Or through Ko-fi:

And in any case, just a boost will already go a long way! So if you want I’d really appreciate it if you boosted this post.

Thank you very much <3

“Instinctive sleeping and resting postures: an anthropological and zoological approach to treatment of low back and joint pain”

Some interesting ideas on how to treat musculoskeletal problems using sleep postures used by older societies and our primate relatives.

They think they have figured out one of the main reasons why it is so minor in most people, and causes such huge damage in others: An auto-immune function is interfering with the bodies defence.

This has treatment implications and will help us focus our efforts between several research efforts underway, and might help us screen for people who are for sure going to have a bad time when they arrive at hospital before it gets really bad.
