I'm looking for a way to shield my phone number for #privacy reasons. Suggestions?
I have used an app to create a burner number that forwards to my Android phone, which is great - but it is not a #FOSS thing that is going to work on a #Linux phone, so I'm looking for an alternative. Something simple like a voicebox that I could access over the web or via email might be all I need, although the ability to somehow make calls from a burner number would be great.
I don't mind paying for a service, but I won't sign up with a company that is a privacy disaster, like that big search engine / advertising company, or that nonsense thing in Redmond.
Wait couldn't you use #OSM to create fantasy world maps? I mean the mapping system is there... even more interesting, couldn't you create a fictional non-existant world using the OSM system as an overlay of the real world, interlinking with IRL places and only allowing edits based on place markers -
two groups fighting over the changes of this mystic nonexistant world by practically going to these places?
Spiders Can Fly Hundreds of Miles Using Electricity
''#Spiders have been found two-and-a-half miles up in the air, and 1,000 miles out to sea.''
''It is commonly believed that ballooning works because the silk catches on the wind, dragging the spider with it. But that doesn’t entirely make sense, especially since spiders only balloon during light winds.''
''spiders can sense the Earth’s electric field, and use it to launch themselves into the air.''
White people are all prejudiced. So are all black, red, brown, yellow, conservative, liberal, moderate, CIS, trans, gay, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, atheist, animist, pagan, other religious, young, old, ancient, rich, poor, and middle class people. Plus all those others I didn't mention.
What matters isn't whether or not you're prejudiced, but what you do with that prejudice.

Stupid random fact:
Philosophy comes from "Philo" and "Sophia" - The love of Wisdom.
But since Sophia became co-opted later to mean "Wisdom" and at first was just "Cleverness" - perhaps "Love of Cleverness" isn't only just more correct but also sort of fitting if you've ever been forced to talk to a young person with a fascination for Philosophy for any length of time*
[* in that scenario "any length of time" no matter how short, is always "too damn long"]
