I wish I would get paid for everytime I or my husband have the following conversation about our son (especially with medical professionals): "He has a rare form of dwarfism." "Which one is it?" "Cartilage hair hypoplasia." "Oh, I've never heard of that before!" "Well, like I said, it's rare." 🤦‍♀️

#couchsurfing is now charging $2.39 per month or $14.29 per year for those in 'developed' countries.

They're claiming that the pandemic has forced this upon them...

... nothing to do with the $22.6M venture capital then, I guess

Thinking about how the whole idea of “alpha male” wolves is a myth, based off behaviour only exhibited in captivity. Also thinking about how capitalism & colonialism are effectively systems of captors and captives.

When not in captivity, violent struggles between wolves for dominance are rare or non existent. Meanwhile, the majority of people live in some kind of captivity. How does this change our behaviour? What would we be like if the majority were instead free?

I'm sure I'm not the only person here who's been having "fun" with getting a German health insurance to pay for aids and appliances. 🙄 This is our first time - our son has a rare form of genetically caused, disproportionate short stature and needs a special chair for his new kindergarten group. Correct height of the seat, a rest for the legs, that's very important, especially when you're still developing your fine motor skills. I hope the health insurance will finally agree to buy it. (TK, by the way - but they're all like this, from what I heard)
