notre dame fire Show more
I don't care about the church as an institution, but when this cathedral was built, there was not really an alternative to the church and people did their stuff within it, they just didn't have a choice.
now I checked wikipedia and read that the spire that just burned down was actually built after victor hugo published his novel.. because of the book, popular interest in the building had risen again and a big restoration project was started.
notre dame fire Show more
when I heard about notre dame fire, I remembered reading "notre dame" by victor hugo. I didn't make it through the whole book. but I remember reading the part where he talks about the dying art of cathedral crafters, how they formed an entire language that they carved into the stone. how cathedrals were built for hundreds of years.
and because of that, I feel sad. then I read another toot here, that notre dame has been reworked since forever and will be again.
Dear science writers,
Stop enabling evil. The men targeting Katie Bouman, who was a team lead on the Event Horizon Telescope project that produced that image of the black hole at the center of M87, are not "trolls". Trolls want to get a rise out of people. These men are not just trying to get a rise out of her or anyone else.
They are misogynists. They hate women and can't stand the idea of a woman being successful in science.
Call them what they are.
bicycle pol, dehumanization Show more
oh no. now, after the australian study that found how 31% of the subjects view cyclists as "less than human", it is debated if it would help if we drop the term "cyclist". In the article they say "people who cycle".
and they ask if we should "have one word for people who cycle for transport, another for people who cycle for sport"
what the fuck?? I mean, WTF, WTF, WTF?

How to ask for money without hurting other people: Show more
Poverty is hard. Asking for help is hard. I get it like you wouldn't believe.
But please don't spread your internalized shame.
"I'm sorry to do this"
"I hate myself for having to ask"
"This is embarrassing"
Other people in your situation see this and might be deterred from asking for help.
They shouldn't be shamed, and neither should you. I know it's uncomfortable, but don't shame yourself or others. It isn't your fault.
