tags are a thing! it's been too long since I used that kind of thing...
So I'm a queer person running away from the tumblr purge, because I do not enjoy censorship. What I do enjoy is open-source stuff, so here I am!
I guess that's all?
Pic of the day, 2019, "come and say hi"
With the mist you don't know where the cattle is, you only hear the bells they wear.
And then you get close enough to see them, and walk right in the middle of the herd, before the bells ringing echoes in the clouds behind you as you keep on walking.

Yesterday I went on a hike with a friend, and we went high enough that we spent most of the hike inside the clouds.
I was quiet surreal, and more than a bit magical.
It was also the first time I hiked a trail with over 1100 m elevation gain!
(is that the right way to say it? any hiking bilingual peep around? 1100m de dénivelé positif cumulé...)

Gender should be opt-in, not opt-out.
(and opting out is extremely difficult and almost impossible in our current society)
I don't think it's right to force people into a system like that from birth. If someone wants to identify as a certain gender later, they can do that. Until they tell you their gender, I think it's best to assume that a person is just a person and not put any gender labels on them based on how they look or act. Even the pressure to choose a label can be stressful, sometimes you're just you and no matter how many labels there are, none of them feel right.
I think there need to be more options for people who don't feel comfortable existing in a gender system.
It turns out, mapping the galaxy is a much more difficult job than anticipated, but using the light from Cepheid variable stars, which are stars that brighten and dim according to their size, we can pretty accurately tell distance. By using these stars, we can build a map of the distribution of stars in our galaxy...
So here's a 3D map of Cepheid variable stars, in our very own Milky Way galaxy, released in a survey done back in February. It reveals that the Milky Way isn't as flat as we thought, but rather a little bit warped or twisted. Although rare, it's far from unheard of to see a spiral galaxy with a wobble to it, and quite apparently our galaxy is among them.
Our galaxy is not flat, which means that a whole lot of art is out of date.
We don't know yet what caused the warping effect, could be a recent interaction or collision with another galaxy or even dark matter. At this point, it's still to early to tell.
made granola bars for the first time!
I'm going on a hard hike tomorrow with a friend, and I wanted to make my own snacks.
Half are ginger walnut date, the rest are cardamom pecan cranberries.
I'll have to tweak the honey/sugar ratio next time, but they seem to be holding together quite well so far!
