If you aren't delighted to find the last couple of cold swallows of coffee that you forgot to finish earlier, you don't really love coffee.

@badsirbrian SimpleText you say? Have you seen macos8.app yet?

US Pol ICE surveillance state 

"Among other findings, the report documents that ICE has driver’s license data for 3 in 4 adults living in the U.S.; has scanned at least 1 in 3 of all adults’ driver’s licenses with face recognition technology; can track the movement of vehicles in cities that are home to nearly 3 in 4 adults; and can locate 3 in 4 adults through their utility records."

The calcium carbonate that clams and other marine invertebrates make shells from contains a carbon atom, raising the question: can clam shells sequester CO2 and fight climate change? Unfortunately, stoichiometry is a pain in the siphon sometimes, and since clams make shell using bicarbonate ion, they actually *release* CO2 while making their shells. Basically, the clams are saying they're not our saviors and solving climate change is our responsibility. But can we get on that already?

Made my first ever voxel piece! MagicaVoxel's really intuitive, I love it. Pretty excited to see what I'll be able to do with it when I've got some experience under my belt. #MastoArt #Voxel #VoxelArt #MagicaVoxel #MyStuff

When my beard is gone and my hair is buzzed all I see in the mirror is Colin Robinson.

In other little known Winnie-ther-Pooh facts,
this is an illustration of Edward Bear (before he changed his name), from "When We Were Very Young", a work that is now Public Domain,

and check out that shirt!

So, your Pooh Bear can have a shirt, so long as it's a button down :D
(and yes, in a later version of this image, that shirt was colored in with red!)

The Chromebook that I travel with has decided that playing audio through connected Bluetooth headphones is for chumps. Looking at support forums, this has been a chronic issue with their Bluetooth stack for years.

I'm done with these things.

I’m not sure how popular this place is, no Russian women have approached me about crypto yet 😔

If these were downtown office buildings full of lawyers and accountants blowing up on the regular, it’d be a national scandal. But it’s factories full of country folks and immigrants located in flyover states, so nobody cares

The playoffs are too long, increasing the chance of injuries way too much. It's borderline blood sport. The first two rounds should be best three of five.

Brilliant news!
Obviously it would be nice if #DoctorWho could keep this a secret until the actual episode - but that's almost impossible these days.

Hello Mastodon, I'm back again, been an inactive user for a while and still getting the hang of this platform. I'm a scientist in Denmark, studying #climate #ice and #polar topics. You can find more about my research here: sternaparadisaea.net/

On the one hand, it's creepy how well I've let YouTube know me. On the other hand, watch "When Doctor Who's continuity is on point: Agatha Christie" on YouTube youtu.be/phQZHljkAcI
