man, I hope the good brain weather isn't over already.
I'll go to bed, give the brain some time to recover before tomorrow.

good night :chickSleeping:

@Alexis It's convoluted and absurd and does not end happy for a lot of the people involved. So if you like weird (though I suspect 100 yearold movies are weirder)

hm, how about Bandits? imdb.com/title/tt0118682/

When I last posted my Star Trek paints I got a suggestion for Lily Sloane (Alfre Woodard) from First Contact

I also added Lieutenant Palmer (Dr. Mae Jemison) - Dr. Jemison was invited to cameo on TNG by LeVar Burton. She was the first black woman in space, aboard the Endeavour

I'm still so behind on the new Treks but I recently finished the 2nd season of Disco, and gotta say I kind of love it ^^

A logic module from an 1950s IBM mainframe just showed up on eBay.

This is wild. This big thing is probably just two or three gates, at most. That's why computers filled rooms back then.

Oh, one more thing! We need to learn Portuguese and we're finding it hard. I think music will help. What is some great rock, pop, metal and hiphop music in Portuguese (Portugal)? Any era from the 1960s onward. Feel free to plug your own work!

@owl Because Pumuckl was invented by a Bavarian author who wrote scripts for the original audio plays for the Bavarian Radio, probably.

I would like to find more deafies on the Fediverse. Anybody know of any besides me?

Energiekrise, zynisch 

Die Tage wurde das Content-Team gebeten, einen Artikel zusammenzuschustern zum Thema “So merken Sie, dass es in Ihrer Wohnung zu kalt ist“.

Ich saß dabei und dachte “Na ich weiß nicht ... wenn ich friere vielleicht?“

Das hat mich inspiriert, ein paar weniger offensichtliche Hinweise zusammenzutragen: Woran Ihr *wirklich* merkt, dass es in euerer Wohnung zu kalt is

- Der Kühlschrank muss heizen, um seine Innentemperatur zu halten

- Die Spinne in der Zimmerecke lässt sich aus Protest ein Winterfell wachsen

- Im Radio wird durchgesagt, dass an deinem Wäscheberg Schneekettenpflicht herrscht

- Nach dem Waschen wird die Wäsche hart statt trocken

- Beim nächtlichen Toilettengang rennen keine Silberfischchen vor dir weg, sondern Eisbärchen auf dich zu

- Dein Mitbewohner hat sich einen Zamboni besorgt, um die Fliesen im Flur zu wischen

@lotharmucki @plush_bot Yeah. It's nice hugging big panda plushie in bed when I'm cold, it helps me warm up, and is soft.

“Whenever I hear of someone cutting ties permanently, I ask myself how bad would things have to get for me to never want to speak to someone again, and I generally try to assume that whatever happened to them was at least that bad”

@lotharmucki @plush_bot I don't have many plus toys, but I have one small panda I got as a present when I was a teen, and a big panda I bought during corona to have something to hug.

@alpine_thistle ...I'm pretty sure when I started reading English recipes, it took me a while to figure out that baking soda was not baking powder.

@alpine_thistle baking soda/sodium bicarbonate is sold under its German name Natron in 50g sachets or bigger boxes or orther containers. You also might not find it at every discounter, but need a bigger branch or a drug store (which is not a pharmacy, it's weird/complicated). It's marketed as a multi-purpose thing, for cleaning, absorbing odours, cooking (makes vegetables easier to digest IIRC).
