Hey fedi: the creator of told me he'd gladly parse out links and BTC addresses in fediverse profiles, so they can be linked as donation suggestions from analyzing people's interactions with your posts.

Let me know if your profile has a link or BTC address in it, so I can direct him there for testing his implementation.

Stupid historical fact #ArtHistory #History

This is a Swedish medallion from Bohuslän in 300 AD - made by a dude from the North who served in Rome as a soldier, made money, came home and tried to fashion himself as a roman emperor.

Thats him on the coin and the "latin" around the edges is just nonsense, jumbled random letters.

But really, putting a bike rack on a cargo bike is ingenious. Epic win for people with n+1 bikes who don't drive cars.

Yo dawg, I herd you like bikes, so I put a bike on your bike, so you can ride while you ride:

Purchase piece of cake at coffee shop. Inhale huge crumb with the very first bite.

Polarisation is toxic.

Every time we force people to pick a side... they may not pick ours. Do it over and over and over again? The expected result is to push everyone away.

Making the world better needs to be an inclusive, forgiving project.

In my opinion, obviously.

Fortunately, I'm currently in Berlin, the capital of kabobs.

I've seen many different spellings for the word "kebap", but "kabob" is new to me and absolutely hilarious. Apparently it's a thing in North America, but I haven't seen it spelled like that over there myself.

I guess I'll get a kabob for dinner now. Shouldn't read about food when I'm hungry.

Berlin people: what's the coolest place for working on a laptop right now?

And I do mean cool in the literal sense.

You can add Nintendo to the list of companies that uses #XMPP to push notifications to devices.

The correct approach to Nestlé, dear German followers, has been described by Dexter in a song:

> Keiner meiner Homies trinkt Nestlé
> Wart, ich revidiere
> Keiner meiner Homies trinkt Nestlé, außer Pellegrino

Germany is such an unabashedly corporatist country, that government offices aren't even trying to hide it in any way. Here's the ministry for food and agriculture, openly promoting Nestlé for making their processed food just a little bit less unhealthy:

Should be "prosecute" in the second paragraph, of course. Sue me, grammar nazis!

Instead of helping Assange, Australia just doubles down on persecuting journalists for exposing war crimes:

Imagine someone would actually persecute war crimes for once. Outrageous idea, I know.

Ugh, thanks for another 5.5 hour train ride without coffee, Deutsche Bahn!

Seeing how often the fairly simple onboard restaurant machines are broken (almost every single time I use an ICE), I have no idea how people trust in the safety of the actual trains nowadays.
