Donald Trump: The Covid-19 mortality rate is much lower in Germany because they’re testing way more people
Also Donald Trump: We’re leading the world in testing, we have the most positives because we’re testing more people than any other nation.
This is also because every time someone does address disability, they don’t seem to address any of the ones with high-tech treatments. Like, for example, access to SAFE dialysis and insulin (and insulin paraphernalia).
If your utopian vision for the future doesn’t meet the needs of the disabled population, then it’s actually a dystopia and you should probably go back to the drawing board.
And yes, this is about the current obsession with banning “single-use plastics”.
The revolution must be accessible
IN THIS HOUSE
WE LOVE AND RESPECT
He’s also not a landlord in the traditional sense; He doesn’t buy already established properties.
He builds them.
Tom Nook isn’t a landlord, he’s a housing provider who sells you homes at cost with zero interest loans and no down payment.
Glad to see we’re all in agreement that cats talk like disparaged victorian children
May i add the piece from artist Verbal Vomit
Might I also add
The spiritual successor to Miette
Me: *Removes my cat from my lap to do something else.*
My cat: Father is…evil? Father is unyielding? Father is incapable of love? I am running away. I am packing my little rucksack and going out to explore the world as a lone vagabond. I can no longer thrive in this household.
The way that a lot of people visualize ‘the revolution’ to be would kill hundreds of millions of disabled people
I’m really specifically talking about leftists who are romanticizing and equating the apocalypse with revolution. If your version of ‘revolution’ doesn’t account for those who can’t breathe on their own or need access to sterile environments it’s a fucked up vision. Disabled people deserve to be a part of this world and the reality of it is that in order to seize the means of production that would enable people to stay alive we can’t just topple society in its entirety. Envisioning a state of total apocalypse as a paradise does not do marginalized people justice, it just means that we die while the rich and able live.
We can have our revolution and keep the people who fight for it the most alive if we care to.
It’s Not a Plot Hole, It’s Foreshadowing
It’s Not a Plot Hole, It’s Just Something That They Opted Not to Spoon-feed You Because It Would Be Obvious If You Thought About It For 20 Seconds
It May Be a Plot Hole, But It Still Works In Terms of the Story’s Themes and Character Logic
Okay, It Is a Plot Hole, What Are You Going to Do, Cry about It?
All Works of Fiction Represent Constructed Realities and by Demanding a Lack of Plot Holes, You Are Improperly Importing the Rules of Objective Reality into a Subjective Creation that Must Be Judged Primarily on Its Aesthetic Merits
Dude, Just Come-up With a Headcanon Like A Normal Human Being
This Obviously Isn’t a Plot Hole and No One Even Thinks It Is, But the Algorithm of this Horrible Clickbait Website Has Recognised “Plot Hole” As a Word that Whips the CinemaSins Bitchers’ Brigade into a Frothy Lather So We’ve Encouraged Our Writers to Use It as Often as Possible
Researchers are slowly coming around to the idea that spider webbing is an essential part of these creatures’ cognitive apparatus. The animals don’t just use their webs to sense with; they use them to think
It’s part of a theory of mind known as “extended cognition,” and humans utilize it too. For instance, we might like to think of our minds as contained in our heads, but we rely on a number of structures outside of our heads (and even outside of our bodies) to help us think. Computers and calculators are an obvious example. We organize our living spaces to help us remember where things are, we jot notes, and we take photographs or store mementos.
But these examples pale in comparison to how a spider’s thinking is interwoven with its web. Scientists are discovering that some spiders possess cognitive abilities rivaling those of mammals and birds, including foresight and planning, complex learning, and even the capacity to be surprised. It’s enough to make you consider whether “Charlotte’s Web” could have been a true story.
The crux of these newly discovered cognitive abilities of spiders comes down to their webs. We’re finding that if you take away a spider’s webbing, it loses some of these capabilities.
why stop at spiders?
Is this why tarantulas and such are such dummies?
TIL that the cheese slicer (Ostehøvel) was invented by Thor Bjørklund (Nor). The legend has it that, frustrated at the un-even cheese slices he cut with a knife, he wanted to improve the cheese world. He realized that a carpenter’s plane could do the job and the cheese slicer was born.
Having fun picturing an incredibly Norwegian man have a meltdøwn over a cheese cutting disaster before glancing at his carpentry tools and having an epiphany
