Don’t forget, you've got love
You've got bravery, you’ve got trust
You’ve got bodies, responsibilities
There’s still mountains, they're pushing up from underneath
You’ve got pain, caused plenty of
It’s not so strange but now you’ve had enough
Don’t forget your bones and skin
Or where you go, or where you’ve been
-Mirah, Bones & Skin

In 2016, I published a paper in the TSQ titled:
“You Have Made Her a Man among Men”: Translating the Khuntha's Anatomy in Fatimid Jurisprudence
I discussed in it a case described in a Fatimid-era legal manual where a person had their body examined in order to be recognized as male and have a marriage voided.
so, language learning tip: frequency lists are your friend
these are lists of the most common words in your target language. learning these words is extremely helpful with comprehension.
you can very often get flashcard decks of frequency lists for the libre flashcard program anki: https://apps.ankiweb.net/

How to darn a hole in a sock:
Similar technique but this time with an embroidery hoop to mend the crotch of a pair of jeans:
Another good video on darning by hand:
Don't get confused if you look at other videos that teach machine darning since that is a completely different technique.
TTRPGs, players wanted, London, boosts OK
Mastodon probably isn’t the best place to start, but on the off chance... I’m looking for a couple more players for my regular Tuesday night RPG sessions in central London. I run a variety of systems, story-oriented, with a fairly relaxed attitude to rules - the current plan is a little Tales from the Loop followed by some D&D. Novice players and people who aren’t cis guys especially welcome. Reply or DM for more info.
it's nice to be nice, motherfuckers
