Hatte eben eine total schöne Begegnung. Eine ältere Dame mit seeeehr außergewöhnlichem Outfit betrat die herrentoilette. Ein junger Typ am Waschbecken sagt: „Das ist die Herrentoilette. Die damentoilette ist gegenüber.“
Sie antwortet: „ach! Herren, Damen, das sind doch bürgerliche Kategorien“ und geht in die nächste Kabine.
@prin I like this coinage, but it's definitely not what my python scripts are doing....
Interesting finding. "[I]n all 344 cities [in China], solar photovoltaic systems were capable of generating and selling electricity at lower prices than the grid without subsidies, and in 22 percent of those cities, they could also produce electricity at lower prices than coal."
For work, I often find myself colourising (or colorizing) files of depth data. I don't mind that I switch between US & UK spellings, and I standardise to US for documentation since that's the overwhelming majority of my collaborators' dialect. But I am super annoyed to see myself writing "colorise" these days, because as far as I know that variant is wrong _everywhere_.
@savagegoose It is kind of astonishing, even from this distance.
@savagegoose seriously. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that crap, along with all the unavoidable things.
@star thank you! This is not surprising, but I definitely had a simplistic image of how these rituals played out.
@star How were people chosen to be sacrificed? And was it regarded as an honour, a punishment, or something else?
I'm struck by how the "civilised Europeans" turned their nose up at these human sacrifices when every one of their cities had either a gallows, a chopping block or a pyre for burning apostates.
@compostablespork 😻 that pose!
Cualli teotlac, mimichtin!🐠 Hello and welcome again to another thread about The Aztec Empire! I really should come up with a name for this series 🤔 Any suggestions? #StarTalk
Today we will be discussing a topic often brought up in media with about 0% understanding of the source or lore: The fierce and mighty gods and goddesses of the Mexica Pantheon

@ghost_bird Yup! The "official" reason I switched from Windows to Mac ~15 years ago is that the BSD internals are convenient when I'm often developing on my laptop to run on a *nix machine somewhere else. But that Aesthetic was definitely also a selling point.
2) As the Coral Atlas scales up I'm starting to see where I was doing things in lazy ways that don't scale. As a result I can tell you that at 3.7m pixel resolution, 1/4 of the Great Barrier Reef fits in this laptop's RAM, but the entire country of Fiji does not. Which is giving me a thoroughly odd mental image.
Two observations about my current work in progress:
1) You know how h4xx0rz in movies are often depicted watching streams of green text go by and it's all very dramatic? I am currently in that situation as I monitor several test runs of some automation, but with one key difference from the movies: it's really heccing boring.
