Tip for those living in areas prone to power loss.
Keep big jugs of water in your freezer, if you have freezer space. if/when power goes out, use the fridge/freezer as little as possible, and transfer frozen water jugs to the fridge. This should help keep the temperature low enough to delay spoilage of food.
TIL that Venus rotates so slowly that if it you were on venus at sunset, you could walk fast enough to keep up with it. You could watch the sunset for as long as you could walk.
I mean you couldn't because Venus is entirely made of fire and lightning and acid and unbelievable atmospheric pressure, and I think there's only a couple sunsets a year. (All the more reason to chase them, right?)
But I still am charmed by this idea of strolling along with the sunset.

Black Earth Rising Ep. 2 Show more
The second episode of #BlackEarthRising was powerful, shocking, and beautifully shot. The setup from Ep. 1 is coming into clearer focus but with plenty of new suspense & mystery. The show is a legal thriller with an international law dimension, and gives me a reason to actually care.

"Pro-tip kid: Always make sure the cool back-scratcher you found isn't, in fact, a monkey's paw," whispered a gruff voice.
I looked over at the old... person... with shaggy hair and weathered trenchcoat obscuring most of their face save for their sharp, deep, dark eyes.
"No matter where you find it. Even if it's somewhere familiar. Just don't."
"But what if my back really itches?"
"Then expect to have this conversation in 45 years."
Probably one of the biggest unacknowledged impacts of capitalism on our life is the artificial scarcity of time.
Without capitalism, we could all work less. We could rest more. We could let selfcare, play and creation come intuitively. A lot of things don’t need to be scheduled.
We could just let time happen without any obligation to make a particular use of it.
Please CW your posts fediverse, I've seen so many recently that need to be CW'd but weren't. These posts can be genuinely triggering, upsetting, angering or a reminder of horrible, difficult times or their current life and having at least sympathy for that isn't too difficult or if you don't at least try to understand. The CWs are there, please use them.
