You guys have probably seen this already, but if not here ya go.
I don't know anything about the Witcher as far as the games go, but the Netflix trailer looks interesting.
And look, I understand the concerns about multitasking, but for people watching children, esp. outdoors, podcasts and audiobooks are a godsend. Many of us who are #parenting #children while finding time to #workout don't have time to sit down and read a print book. As the article says, absorbing less is better than absorbing nothing at all.
so it seems pretty clear vice is trying to get outrage clicks on its latest mastodon article.
this is a good opportunity to give 'counter promotion' a try
here is a good article to circulate instead of the vice article:
Rape mention, abortion, imprisonment
The U.S. will be here soon.
A teenage rape victim in El Salvador, Evelyn Beatriz Hernandez, was given a 30-year jail sentence in 2017 for aggravated murder by a female judge.
The Citizen Group for the Decriminalisation of Abortion (CDFA) said there was no proof that she tried to kill her baby and that she suffered a pregnancy-related complication. Miscarriages and stillbirths in El Salvador are often treated as suspected abortions.
Some thoughts on Stranger Things.
Calling all #writers: In August a couple of friends and myself are launching #writersmonth, a prompt challenge akin to Inktober, except for writers of any kind.
The blog is on Tumblr, but we have an AO3 collection, and absolutely everybody's welcome.
(Boosts would be great, btw! *g*)
"New research estimates that a worldwide tree planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities, a figure the scientists describe as “mind-blowing”". Let's get planting! 🌳🌳🌳
this is the cutest thing i have ever read
Okay, so, the big problem with time travel is that the earth is moving at an incredible speed, so if you travel back in time 1 second, you'll emerge in space (presumably without a spacesuit) vast distances away from the earth. However, what's missing is whether or not time travel preserves momentum. If it does, you die alone in space. If it doesn't, you die by being struck by the earth at tremendous speed 1 second later. This feels like an important distinction.
Just when fandom thought it was safe to go back to Twitter... *dramatic movie trailer music plays*
