Measurements of pollution in a small German village found that burning wood doubled the level of some pollution that is dangerous for human health.

@rms lived in a neighborhood in the old logging areas south of seattle, people who had lived in the south end for half a century, and they lived on wood heat. house we rented had four wood stoves. neighbors would ask if we had enough wood for the winter. Come burn ban time the place would be unbearably full of days worth of stagnant smoke.

During Monday evening’s Denver City Council meeting, a narrow majority of council members voted to approve a measure to prevent forced removals of unhoused residents from their outdoor encampments in 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below.

Gonna share some truths that are taboo to talk about, and everyone is gonna angrily at me about (I’m going to drink this mead then have a nap, don’t bother):glasses frames are a monopoly, but you can buy pretty nice glasses from China if you have a prescription for like $20, I have like 11 - look at Vooglam ~ nobody actually gives a shit if you go to the glamorous restaurant alone, as long as you tip well and are polite - in fact you’ll get better drinks at the bar~ the secret to doing a lot of stuff as an adult, like hobbies or going places, is just asking. Nobody gives a shit if you tip well and you’re polite. You can go almost wherever. You can finger paint. Whatevs.~ life is too short for shit beer & liquor~ life is too short for shit men, love~ there will be other loves even though it seems giant ~ trans rights are human rights and I’ll officiate your wedding ~ local elections matter ~ you should be seeing a therapist~ if you haven’t worn it in two years, donate it, darling~ people at bars want to tell you about their jobs and hobbies, and they’re all interesting~ video games and D&D are real life skills~ find the fitness that you can do long term~ no fad diets~ you don’t have to know how to code or watch Star Wars to be a great IT person~ if you ever have or think you have a serious health problem in America, understand our healthcare is shit and you need to research it yourself and then get like 3 opinions minimum. Nobody will look out for you like you do.~ you should probably wear the mask~ if you have ovaries that work you can just take birth control forever and never have a period, there are some health caveats but it’s mostly sorta kinda just a stigma not to. The military does this.~ if you have ovaries that work find an gynecologist who is generally not an asshole, life is too short for checking with your nonexistent husband ~ if your doctor harps on your bmi and nothing else, then get a new doctor, before you die. Literally.~ it’s a good night if you get home safe, brush your teeth, and take an aleve~ life is too short to penny pinch instead of living, because soon we’ll be gone~ you look perfect in that outfit to everyone except you ~ life is too short for shit jobs ~ ask how other people are doing, and listen~ genuinely care about what happens to other people because it will happen to you

@hacks4pancakes my wife has tried one of those places and got good ones, but i tried one (idk if it was the same one) and they're kinda eh. i think the focal alignment is off or something. i have a considerably stronger prescription than her too which probably makes a difference.

@hacks4pancakes I agree, the secret to eating alone at a restaurant is to sit at the bar. You're not technically alone (bartender) and also there's usually TV to distract you. 90% of places you can get full dinner service sitting at the bar. done it all the time since late college.

@tracingcovid Not to mention the 80s increased the standards on household income to require dual income households to stay afloat, meaning less people have free time to write those letters or make those phone calls or visit those representatives in their offices or go to their invariably daytime-scheduled meet and greet events.

(It's not that dual income households are bad, it's that they became a necessity for economic survival).

There's a particularly chilling Doctor Who episode where aliens took over the world a year ago, but have been telling everyone that it has been that way forever, and punishing those that publicly deny it. 99.9% of people simply go on repeating it and accepting it and just going about their days as normally as possible, despite everyone knowing it isn't really true.

I'm not sure how wanting historical accuracy is pro-nazi.

Does a WWII war movie that accurately portrays the actions of Nazis feel pro-Nazi to you?

Imagine instead they used some other stand-in for what Nazis really looked like. 100 years later, people will watch the movie and not make the connection between the people in the movie and the Nazis because the symbols aren't the same.

Not a good outcome.

This attitude that "we shouldn't accurately portray history because it's icky" is ... bad.

What it actually is is "actual nazis not wanting people to know they were nazis" being pwned by "anti-nazis wanting to show how those actual nazis were actually nazis"

@lugal I mean it's not quite THE n-word, although it's commonly discouraged, outside of the UNCF. in lincoln's time, it would have probably been seen as genteel. especially compared to whatever words Johnny Rebs would have used.

ssfckdt ,
@ssfckdt@mastodon.cloud avatar

@lugal Well, yes. This manifestation of Lincoln had been apparently living happily post-death on this planet and was aware of the changes to the universe somehow. So he was aware that language had changed since his time.

Certainly the word is discouraged now but it's not really at all at the level of the other N word.

(Uhura's response is an interesting one that doesn't resonate in the modern era, despite probably being considered akin to woke at the time, I dare say.)
