Haben wir jetzt nicht lange genug über den gesprochen und können uns wieder diesen 45.500 Jahre alten Schweinebild zuwenden? Es ist fast dreimal so alt wie die Höhlenmalerei von Lascaux! 😲🤯🥳

Sublime images of Virunga National Park where for the first time in nearly 41 years, a herd of elephants is resuming its rights over its territory, its natural lands (photo from the newspaper Le Figaro).

In the year 1101, a group of knights searching for the Holy Grail is lured by Morgana into an enchanted glen, which contains a dragon. The glen borders on a a village and a nunnery so, despite knowing it to be a trap, the place themselves between the dragon and the village, pushing further into the enchantment. They the dragon, but when they emerge from the glen, 920 years have passed.

They travel to the new centre of power and pledge their loyalty to the successor to the power they once served and swear loyalty to the queen,promising to help uphold chivalry and assist in finding the still un-located grail.

Great news, everyone! The website is now live and taking donations for the Refugee Trans Initiative! refugeetransinitiative.org/

world aids day is today 

please take a moment today to remember the huge loss we’ve suffered to the aids epidemic, especially to the queer community.

also remember “the epidemic” isn’t over, people are still dying of aids, but it’s largely due to poverty/lack of medical access and stigma/being afraid to reach out for help. HIV is treatable now and those deaths are preventable. end the stigma, talk about HIV/AIDS, get tested if you’re at risk and encourage others to do the same.

I've also changed the API for the list of communities, so that communities like toot.wales can be in both the English and Welsh languages, and communities like tech.lgbt can be in both Tech and LGBT categories.

If you run a regional Mastodon server, you can lock the language the interface appears in with the DEFAULT_LOCALE environment variable.


I think the _most_ ecological is the oldest: sheet music.

Sheet music can be 100% organic and biodegradable. Even the players are organic and biodegradable.

Since sheet music is always played live, _nothing_ sounds as good when you have a quality player.

While vinyl is niche, sheet music is even more niche, as even fewer people have quality players available.
