I've noticed cultural differences as well, when I worked in broadcast engineering it was quite common for Frenchmen (and the Italians) to cry due to problems caused defective or misconfigured equipment anderrors that France Télécom and Telecom Italia had made stopping things from working and this wasn't thought of as unusual or unmanly (TBH I could understand why they cried given the cursed situations that telephone companies can cause (and still do today)

Ist ja nicht erst seit Heute bekannt - und damit will man den Kilmakrieg gewinnen...😂 😱 :mastozany:

Abhängigkeit vom Auto 55 Millionen Menschen offenbar ohne ausreichenden Nahverkehr

Und jetzt bitte einmal nachsprechen, ein längst überfälliges Mantra für eine ressourcensparende Zukunft:

1. Ich überlege vor dem Kauf, ob ich es wirklich brauche.
2. Ich ziehe ernsthaft in Betracht, gebraucht zu kaufen. Gebraucht kaufen ist kein Armutsbeweis!
3. Ich erwäge, bevor ich irgendetwas kaufe, ob man das Alte nicht doch reparieren (lassen) kann.

Und als Bonus für die ganz Harten:
4. Wenn ich selber in der Lage bin, etwas zu reparieren, schließe ich mich einem lokalen Reparaturcafé an.

@Herbstfreud Die Kauf-Bedürfnispyramide:
Nutzen was man besitzt > Leihen > Tauschen > gebraucht kaufen > Selbst machen > Kaufen

@Erdrandbewohner Jetzt wollte ich grad gucken, wie die aussieht, aber da hat schon jemand auf Twitter Fotos zusammengesucht: https://twitter.com/stephanpalagan/status/1349075368116965382

Prost!

@cadadr

Old joke

Weird business or medical facility: Can you please fax the information to us?

Ordinary human being: No, I can't fax because where I live.

Weird business etc.: Why? Where do you live?

Ordinary human being: 2021.

(inspired by comments in my alt)

Are you comfortable being naked around your peers?

is this a shitpost? I still don't understand that word very well 

I'm an anti-faxxer: I think we shouldn't be sending faxes anymore, email is more convenient.

I don't know how many folk on here are aware of the horrific research being challenged by the #StopSpectrum10K movement. It is thinly veiled eugenics research aimed at creating a test that would allow for the abortion of pregnancies where the child would be autistic. As an autistic person, the parent of an autistic person, and indeed someone with many autistic kin (let alone colleagues and friends), this is pretty scary stuff, imagining the intentional erasure of my family. It's been a really ugly few weeks. Anyway, I think there are quite a few autistic folk on the fedi and many who might see themselves as allies. Please do read this heartsore post from one of the most eloquent activists, @autisticscienceperson@twitter.com .

Entwässerte #Moore sind verantwortlich für den Ausstoß von fünf Prozent der gesamten vom Menschen verursachten #Treibhausgasemissionen. Das ist doppelt so viel wie der gesamt #Flugverkehr! Moore wieder zu bewässern und weiter zu lernen wie auch feuchte Moore landwirtschaftlich genutzt werden können würde so viel mehr bringen, als viele andere Maßnahmen. Nur leider kann man dabei keine tolle neue, smarte Technologie verkaufen…

@welshpixie No advice, but damn, Exploding Head Syndrome would make a great band name

I didn't know before that:

- Mexico the city was built on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, or Mexico-Tenochtitlan.
- Mexico-Tenochtitlan was named after the Mexica, the people ruling the Aztec empire, and Tenoch, the founding ruler of the city.
- The city gave name to The United States of Mexico, not the other way around.

The city of Mexico, Federal District, Mexico was later officially renamed Mexico City to reduce confusion.

Was meint ihr, werden nun mehr Menschen zu #Mastodon & Co. nun migrieren? :boost_ok:

I don't understand why people think skeletons are evil. I've had one inside me my whole life and it's been nothing but supportive.

Ace Week 

It's #AceWeek :asexual_flag:
I’m starting a series of threads mostly talking about myself; I don't want to do an Asexuality 101. I'm not quite sure if I just selfishly want to get some things out, or if I want it to be an more like an educational look into my mind/life/feelings.
I do know my perspective is very limited, and the ace community disproportionately white.
