The mold ended up being leaky. The puddle on the bottom isn't growing so I think the viscosity of the Oomoo® is going to save this project.
The stuff takes 6 hours to cure, so I'm going to have to wait till tomorrow to see the results. After that I have to do one more pour.
And after that I'm switching to Lego for making my mold boxes.
This movie about three generations of women with super powers seems pretty heck'n cool: Fast Color
The first Pride was a riot.
Trans women of color started the fight for queer liberation fifty years ago.
Today, queer immigrants, people of color and sex workers still face police violence.
No cops at pride.

For those who want to do more than just posting their opinions on social media, here are some things which can actually make a difference...
• Join an actual protest. I have before. Have you?
• A consumer boycott is by far the most effective thing to do. Boycott Israeli products and companies which support Israel (notably Hewlett Packard).
• If you're a student or researcher, boycott them academically too.
• Donate money to the UN to help Palestinian refugees.
• Listen to and amplify Palestinian voices, like https://twitter.com/MuhammadSmiry
(He and others are one of the reasons I'm not quitting Twitter)
• Support peace building initiatives like Breaking The Silence.
• Here are a few more suggestions from Palestine itself: https://pchrgaza.org/en/?page_id=579

All the boycotting of Eurovision 2019 which actually matters (by musicians, trade unions, tourists, etc) has already been happening for months.
Did you buy a ticket to go there? No? Good. Many of the people in the audience today are Israeli soldiers and citizens who got free tickets. They didn't have the spike in tourism that Eurovision host countries normally get.
Did you pay attention to all of the branding and propaganda that Israel were doing? No? Also good. They've done their best to try and hide their darker side. I trust nobody's falling for it.
tl;dr whether or not you were watching the broadcast, it was already a huge failure regardless
Yesterday (because early release on Patreon) I learned of the existence of theremin player Carolina Eyck, who apparently invented a technique for playing precise notes on the theremin using hand positions to span an octave that's become a standard technique. (As she says, the instrument is only about a hundred years old - technique isn't solidified yet.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYSGTkNtazo
