Aryeh Nirenberg has created an amazing video, which lets you feel the rotation of the earth:

Using a tracking mount aligned with North Star, he kept taking photos every 12 seconds for about 3 hours. The camera is looking at the same portion of the Milky Way.

There's an exodus to Mastodon from Twitter happening in Spain, for the same reason it's happening in Scotland — Twitter's censoring of Independence supporters. #YoMigroaMastodon

Merry Christmas to you all. This isn't a Christmas story, but I hope it makes you smile nonetheless. The late, great Ivor Cutler

Once we are independent our whole identity will be reshaped.

Instead of all of us carrying this crazy regional identity of a greater England, Eastenders, English Premiership and cricket, we will will wake up to the reality.

Scotland is a magical massive and diverse archipelago of approximately one hundred inhabited islands. I’ve been lucky enough to retire early and travel widely around Scotland.

It’s most definitely not the place described by BBC Pacific Quay.

It IS ok, to not be ok.

My son was born with Congenital Cytomegalovirus, better known as .

It poses a risk to unborn children & can lead to hearing loss & disability.

If caught early in pregnancy, treatment can reduce risks.

The NHS don't test for it. This NEEDS to change.

I'm waiting on my Scot Gov Petition to go live. In meantime, can the community do me a favour & share this.

It's illogical they don't test for a condition were the effects can be lessened by early diagnosis.

For anyone who may not have noticed, it appears the moderators have been getting a hard time from some of us Scots. As far as I can see they are trying to make sure this stays a friendly & welcoming place for everyone. If they disapprove of a comment you've made. Accept it & try not to give them grief & post it on twitter instead. I'm sure we can all do that 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

@MandyGandhiMandibles yeah that's what they did to me. I was on lower rate for daily. Sent me letter 18th!! Dec telling me I needed reassessed and I had to tell them "what had changed" and return by 2nd Jan. Obviously being Christmas post. I had filled it in and returned the next day and it was received (recorded) 24th. Then I waited. Stressing. Text received February!! to confirm they had received it. After being reassessed in March. They claimed my mental health was better

Must admit at first i questioned the need for another platform, but now im here im quite enjoying myself. Always felt i was on the defensive on twitter, even from our own side. Here it appears more relaxed, friendly. Know it will change over time, but enjoying it while i can.

These are my boys, Spook, on the left and Gomez , who is a Maine Coon. They have got me through a very tough year, along with my mad Jack Russell, Buster
