CSA, 4ch*n fuckery, ukpol, uspol 

fyi: 4ch*n are making false flag Twitter accounts claiming to belong to anonymous paedophile staff members and volunteers at LGBT organisations. See e.g. here.

The right wing will believe this. Much of the media will believe this. The QAnon people will be delighted to believe this. These are dark days. Do not be fooled.

Blunt responses to transphobia 

My old college has become embroiled in The Great Washroom Debate, and released some helpful signage to assist people who may find themselves confused in this trying time.

Here's the fucking thing tho it's not that ADHD and Autism don't have downsides especially as it pertains to surviving under capitalism

But we DEFINE them medically by their downsides. You get an ADHD or ASD diagnosis just by looking at the bad parts. So the bad parts are centered and we are only defined as disordered and therefore we must be Prevented

But!! If you spend time around a lot of neurodivergent people you will notice common traits and differences that are neutral or positive too

Most people are under the impression the ADHD is somehow a 'deficit of attention,' but it could equally and quite appropriately be framed as having higher than normal neurological requirements for stimuli.

When ADHD kids especially seem to bounce from subject to subject "mindlessly," what they're doing is not just randomly slopping through whatever without paying attention. They're running through lists of potentially stimulating subjects until they find one that suits their high requirements.

A few days ago, a ROM of the unreleased Pokémon Picross for the GBC was found in a Nintendo leak. As a fan of both Pokémon and Picross, naturally I’ve been playing it since a few days!

I gotta say, it’s a neat Picross game, and it features never seen before spritework that’s really charming and with really good use of the GBC’s color capabilities

A question: Is there a name for the phenomenon in which a self-governed organization that groups together people who are expected to leave at some time (e.g. student councils, mutual help groups, etc.) won't innovate, because none of its members have any long-term expectations to stay in there?

covid-19 social distancing risk chart (full description in reply) 

Someone shared the following graphic - obtained from bmj.com/content/370/bmj.m3223 - on a group chat we're in.

It describes COVID-19 transmission risk given different group activity circumstances - occupancy, presence of face coverings, duration, ventilation of space, and volume of speech.

It's a little complicated, but it's probably a lot better than "stay six feet apart" in terms of evaluating risk for people who want specific risk criteria.

Gonna post a reply describing the full chart, block by block, for anyone who finds it illegible.

This thing is called a 5D optical data storage crystal. It's a little piece of fused quartz, etched to remarkable precision using a femtosecond ultraviolet laser.

The "5D" part of the name is just a marketing gimmick (it only has three dimensions, obviously), but it's impressive anyway. Using current technology, these little things can store 360 terabytes of data. Once written, these crystals can survive temperatures up to 1000°C, and could theoretically last for billions of years.
