I forgot how much I appreciate having so few around in , till I visited a more rural area where they are a lot more common...

Bloody buggers are annoying the crap out of me...

Is there any list of absurdly productive food plants? Like if you only have x amount of space or can only by y number of plants, what do you grow to produce the largest raw mass of food possible

So zucchini is the prototypical example, right. And I know of a few others, like tabasco peppers for example

Tell me in the replies, what plants do you know of that make gardeners say "help, I have more x than I know how to deal with, can anyone come take some home?"

An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

omg the standard English pronunciation of en.wiktionary.org/wiki/fuchsia really is few-sha. I thought it was this one person being ignorant but it's the whole Anglosphere.

Even without knowing the etymology (German guy Fuchs), the obvious pronunciation from the spelling, and how everyone else pronounces it, is fook-see-ah.

Back in the forge today.

Made a new coal rake for the forge, somewhat more heavy duty than the last one, and then attempted a bracelet type thing. It’s not right, but not bad for a first attempt.

The Endoscope camera is an electronic pill that, once swallowed, travels passively down the esophagus and through roughly 20 to 25 feet of intestines, where it will capture up to 870,000 images and beam them to a computer wirelessly. The patient feels nothing. Amazing.

An indoor #Florespondence. This is Mimosa pudica (pic 1), also known as the 'sensitive plant' as when you touch the leaves they start closing (pic 2).

This is a self defense mechanism in the wild, but you shouldn't do this too often to your indoor plant as it can weaken the plant apparently.

Pic 3 is the Mimosa on the right, Oxalis triangularis on the left, and a bunch of Heleniums I picked from the garden, in the middle.

anyone ever repair a painting before? i want to keep this painting by my grandfather from deteriorating more

also, yesterday was repeatedly putting the lid of his bottle back on top of the bottle, and then got frustrated when he actually succeeded, because he wasn't able to pull the lid back off again himself, which meant he wasn't able to continue his playful learning efforts.

is currently trying very hard to fit two bricks together.
He gets a bit upset though if he hasn't been able to make them stick together for a long time, or when one of the bricks falls away from him. His tantrums when he gets frustrated by something that doesn't go the way he wants, are a bit confronting as it reminds me of myself... though I do my best for him not to witness my bad mood when I'm frustrated.

Ultimately I argue that we need our systems to be robust enough to support real expansion of decentralization.

But if you can see content, and you help host it, there's some level of responsibility there. I believe that people should have the right to say just about anything in their own home, but when they're in my home, you can't say slurs and hang out here. I would knowingly take down illegal content, thus I'm not sure why I wouldn't knowingly take down unethical content.
