South Africa and India proposed a thing to waive IP rights for COVID vaccinations, which is a good thing, will make them more accessible. Here's a map of who supports it and who doesn't. So basically all the poor countries support it and all the rich countries don't support it. -.-

I'm confident enough to upgrade my FinSL status in my profile from A level to B level.

This I give you a still image of a video where I'm telling a story about when I was sixteen and went for a lonely walk on christmas night and ended up walking around the local graveyard which was completely candlelit.

@elilla in the 90s when i was running my own BBS, i installed a typo-insulter, but instead of printing insults to the user, i made it print quotes from the ecclesiastes.

Of course the concept of kindness was quite alien back then, but i still remember the more philosophical solution with some fondness.

Jag är så satans trött och det är ännu omkring 50 minuter i tåget och sen måste jag gå och köpa mat före jag kan cykla hem - och bara efter det kan jag ha dagens första kaffe!

Glöm inte din mask! 🐛

@InvaderXan interesting! i guess that different mask types behave differently in this respect. the fabric masks i use tend to gather every possible smell inside and then let them linger there under my nose longer than they'd normally stay.

which is quite annoying, as you might guess

30 years of being student and I still have to make an effort to remind self of this:

if you skipped the last few classes,
if you didn't do the assignments,
if you're way behind on the topic,
then "going to next class" is a choice that makes more sense than "not going to next class".

@InvaderXan I've noticed that wearing a mask doesn't protect from smells, quite the opposite, it reinforces them.

So on that basis I'd say the smell is fairly recent, if you really haven't noticed it before.

What do you say about this, Ilon Mask? *gg*

( You might want to turn on subtitles. The song is not translated, but I can do it here if someone is interested. A very beautiful cyberfolk song. :) )

@bamfic Haven't you happened to notice that about 1312% of every Murican city's surface area is covered by parking lots already? Doesn't look much like ”too expensive” to build parking lots over there. @wion

@wxcafe only donations? well that was unexpected, here churches run on *taxes*

@wxcafe now you don't really think that churches run on holy spirit alone?

Anybody here knows Kurdish and wanna have a low intensity chat going or something? Specifically interested in Sorani.

I was in Hewlêr for a few weeks a year ago. I was there with two classmates as part our education, having classes with 15-year olds in an art school. It was an amazing time wearing the hat of mamosta (teacher) with them.

It was an amazing place, and I want more of it. Also the students didn't know much English, so it would be nice to know some more Kurdish if I meet them again.

Dest xosh!

@wxcafe wouldn't really call church *free*, at least if your intention is to go to the same church regularly.

@vfrmedia I especially like the gender-neutral wording of ”for all those who might need them”. Hopefully the practice will also be gender-neutral.
