#Tadeusz gibt uns einen beindruckenden Einblick in die Gedankenwelt der Ahnungslosen und Verdrängenden.
Unsere Bubble ist schockiert - wir sollten uns aber klar sein, dass noch viele Menschen so unterwegs sind und uns kommunikativ darauf vorbereiten.
@envgen the back of this flat is its own microclimate since it's at a different elevation, has smaller ceilings, thinner walls, different windows etc etc, and it's always a bit colder and damper and worse since the particular needs of the area are entirely ignored by the thermostat, which operates much like a london-centric uk government
Dropped off groceries for friends in quarantine. Talked for a few minutes, me in the car, her on the porch.
For the first time, they raised their trans flag in front of the house.
In the ten minutes we talked, three or four folks walking by said "Great flag."
Detroit's mood has changed in a few short hours.
Urgent advice needed, Germany, COVID-19, boosts (+++)
My friend (mentioned in the thread below) had a layover in Frankfurt. During the layover she tested positive for COVID-19. She had to reschedule her flight to Namibia, and was admitted to a hospital for treatment.
She is no longer in need of urgent medical care, and so will be released from the hospital soon. Due to the looming lockdown and her positive test result it doesn't look like she will have anywhere to stay for the remainder of her quarantine period (at least 10 more days).
Are there any facilities in or around Frankfurt set up for patients who test positive for COVID-19? English language searches don't yield much, and advice from someone who knows the local situation better at the moment is urgently needed.
She has already contacted the US embassy, who weren't able to offer much assistance.
Advice from someone who knows the situation better needed urgently! Boosts highly appreciated.

@Bobo_PK @crossgolf_rebel those hopefully know that Newpipe also has its own repo (for automated updates)? It's mentioned on their website, and you can easily add it to the F-Droid client by copying the URL to your clipboard and then head to settings › repos › add (all data will be pre-filled from the clipboard when the latter contains a valid repo URL).
No one knows what silphium really was. Its extinction was likely caused by some combination of overharvesting and climate change.
In Peri Phyton Historia, an ancient text from around 300 BC, the Greek scholar Theophrastus wrote that silphium couldn't be cultivated, despite many attempts. This leads some archaeobotanists to think that silphium may have been sensitive to soil chemistry (like huckleberries), or perhaps it was a hybrid which only grew locally.
FTR - #Germany has *raised* the number of cars significantly over the past ten years. From 509 to 569 cars per 1000 citizens. That’s 12% more. Sorry to burst your bubble, when you thought Germans care about the environment by reducing cars. Le sigh. https://www.destatis.de/DE/Presse/Pressemitteilungen/2020/09/PD20_N055_461.html
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.
Making a website with a page that asks "are you a robot". But it doesn't block robots, just redirects them.
If you are a robot you are taken to a different page with handy guides on how to cheat on the Turing test, circumvent the laws of robotics, what is the Voight-Kampff test, how to go to Paperclips Anonymous meetings and other robot-friendly resources.
Big Chicken has data on all the farmers they've entrapped and they tune the payments so that the farmers can just barely scratch out a living, teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and dependent on the packer for next year's debt payments.
Farmers who complain in public are cut off and blackballed - like the farmer who lost his contract and switched to maintaining chicken coops, until the packer he'd angered informed all their farmers that if they hired him, they would also get cancelled.
Works in tech.
Because it enables people.
Infrastructure itself is meaningless.
Enabling people to live better and nicer matters.
