Fuck video “documentation” and write a goddamn user manual

We’ve known for millennia that the moon is drifting away from the earth. An unavoidable consequence of this fact: one day there would be a last ever total solar eclipse. That one day is today.

We lucky few line up along the path of the eclipse, a metre-wide ribbon of land on top of a high plateau. Totality will last barely a second.

I stare through the filter and try not to blink. My grandchildren will want to know what being here was like.

Yay! I did it!

#Schweiz: Auf die #Hitze mit rund 30 Grad und teils darüber folgen morgen am Donnerstag schwere #Gewitter. Es besteht #Unwetter-Gefahr und die Zellen entstehen entlang der Alpen und ziehen später ins Mittelland und Richtung Bodensee. kachelmannwetter.com/ch/modell /CG

Imagine #libraries don't exist, but there's this person who thought of them and is trying to convince everyone else about them.

-Borrow books for free? People are going to steal them!
-You can just come in to use a computer? Well that's just going to be abused by freeloaders.
-Staff? Who is going to pay them? Why should my taxes be wasted subsidising access to books for people who haven't saved and bought their own?

How many amazing things do we dismiss? What is our society missing out on?

humanity built cryptocurrencies so we could build an infinite number of ponzi schemes per second. basically

Unser Lokalkäseblatt pusht nun auch das Märchen der "klimaneutralen" Holzheizung. Gefördert von der Politik und der Lobby "Energie Schweiz".
Und die Gesundheitsschäden durch Feinstaub werden totgeschwiegen.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

Dachte erst, es ist witzlos, hier so einen Link zu posten, aber dann fiel mir ein, dass die Hälfte von euch ja gerade zum ersten Mal hier ist.
