hey, friendly reminder to everyone: please, PLEASE do NOT use ABBREVIATIONS as your content warnings

abbreviations can mean a lot of things and there is NO GUARANTEE people will know which one you mean

that makes your warning useless!

please do not use abbreviations!!

@anke Yessssssss!

I went to a con where a woman was selling all these stuffed bats and they were SO CUTE. She had FRUIT BATS that were bats but COLORED LIKE FRUIT and one of them was Batnana who came with a (furry cloth) banana peel. 😂 🦇 🍌

Food 

In English you cook, in German you also cook, in Swedish you fix, in Norwegian you make, and in Icelandic you fire. 🔥

Yesterday morning I captured an incredibly brief and rare event, the ISS transiting the 4% illuminated moon during the daytime. #astrophotography #space #opteam

Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.

at videogames inc, during the invention of videogames:

employee: "i've invented a new kind of enemy to put at the end of levels! they're big and scary, and the whole point of the game is to kill them. the player really really wants to kill them the whole time"
boss: "what are they called?"
employee:

Really missing a circle of friends/chatroom where we'd y'know, CHAT and toss around creative ideas a lot.
But life happens, I guess.

COVID news, not as bad as it sounds, might be good? 

blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/

So: Yes, you can get COVID twice.

HOWEVER, its RARE. We are in the middle of a HUGE pandemic, and it is hitting places well tied into global monitoring networks (say, the US) and we are seeing enough case of reinfection to count on your FINGERS. (If you believe the worst case numbers, you might have to use your toes or ask a friend to help)

That means it is rare. VERY rare.

As to mutation data: NONE of the cases show mutations in the regions the vaccine is targeting, and some don't show any mutations that would indicate that is why they were able to get sick again (Likely it was an issue with that persons immune system)

AND there is no consistency in which strains the people got sick with either time, so this isn't a new form that can infect you again, that is these people draw the short stick in the immune response lottery.

Peter Pan & Wendy random fact: Canonically, the Jolly Roger is equipped with a sewing machine.

Why the hell do I have the Popeye theme stuck in my head.
