Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

Krass, egal wie viele Listen ich anmache, Chefkoch-Werbung kommt durch.

“Die Forderung, dass Auschwitz nicht noch einmal sei, ist die allererste an Erziehung. Sie geht so sehr jeglicher anderen voran, dass ich weder glaube, sie begründen zu müssen noch zu sollen. Ich kann nicht verstehen, dass man mit ihr bis heute so wenig sich abgegeben hat. Sie zu begründen hätte etwas Ungeheuerliches angesichts des Ungeheuerlichen, das sich zutrug.” – Adorno, weils immer mal gesagt werden muss.

Heute vor 100 Jahren wurden Rosa Luxemburg und Karl Liebknecht von rechten Freikorps gefoltert und ermordet.

"Sieh, daß du Mensch bleibst. Mensch sein ist von allem die Hauptsache. Und das heißt fest und klar und heiter sein, ja heiter, trotz alledem." (Rosa Luxemburg)

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

Saw a post from Tumblr explaining how spoon theory is similar to spell slots in D&D (and related games).

That's it. I'm using spell slots from now on.

@reticuleena Startpage ist (IIRC 2014) beim Tor-Browser als Suchmaschine rausgeflogen weil sie IP Tracking gemacht haben und CAPTCHAs angezeigt haben.

Ich bin deren Marketingperson mehrfach begegnet und seither habe ich null vertrauen in die Services dieser Firma.

Kommt für mich daher absolut nicht in Frage.

Metager kannte ich noch nicht, schau ich mir an.

Heute hat der Ausschuss Digitale Agenda des Bundestages eine Sondersitzung zu den geleasten Daten, mit Sicherheitsbehörden und außerdem Twitter, Google, GMX und Facebook.

Habt Ihr Fragen? Tipps? Infos?

Apparently, at least some plants can process sounds to a degree that they noticeably sweeten their nectar if they hear a nearing bee (in under three minutes, which is quite fast).

Some also produce noise (very high-pitched, not fit for human hearing), and you can differentiate healthy from dry/damaged plants by their noise.
