Hi, I'm Fenris! I've been interested in #solarpunk for a few years already. I hope I can acquire some knowledge and do something with my own hands, for now it'd probably involve growing food in my small flat.
Other than that I code sometimes, play video games, I cook when I can (I love all kinds of food) & I'm a couch potato. I'm also genderless (any neutral pronouns) and in #Europe
Je viens de découvrir le projet OpenEmoji.
Un projet de set d’émojis indépendant et libre de droit, initié par des étudiants d'une école d'art allemande.

I just don't trust Ecosia, as great as it seems. I don't understand why they would get their search results from Bing when DDG is mostly open-source and a modified version could be run on their own renewably-powered servers
And then they say that the service is 100% run on renewables, even though Bing isn't, and also 100% private, even though Bing isn't and they don't detail any way they prevent it from harvesting all of the data
It's just dishonest, and there's a fairly easy solution that they didn't use. I don't even understand what they're saying is renewably powered if the searching itself is all Bing - just the landing page and FAQ?
It just feels like some kind of scandal is waiting to happen
If you want to support #Rojava, take a look at IGD's call to action and list of upcoming events. If there's nothing in your area, try to organize something if you can
And please #BoycottTurkey as well. Here's a list of Turkish companies for whom a targeted boycott has been called:

plastic, converting earth into garbage
Most plastic that's sent to recycling isn't recycled, it's either burned or put in landfills. https://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2019/09/20/how-to-recycle-plastic
We are quickly converting the earth into garbage. Our culture of disposable plastics has to end.
Today at the biohacking conference, I took a workshop where I got to hand-make the necessary medications for a chemical abortion. The capsule contains the #mifepristone, and the three tablets (which I hand-made using a special press) are the #misoprostol. The informational and instructive lecture, tablet practice and successful creation all took place in 2.5 hours.
French Linguistics, in English!
Why do French ppl pronounce "je suis" [ʒə sɥi] as if it were written "chui" [ʃɥi] ?
The "e" in "je" is called "e muet" (silent e). Many would say it's not silent, and it isn't, but it can be. In IPA it's written with a "schwa" [ə]. That means "some ppl pronounce it, some don't". Depends on the area, context... So, you can say "je suis" [ʒə sɥi], but most of the time, without even thinking about it, very few ppl really say the schwa. We want language to be faster in order to be more efficient, so some letters get forgotten, the schwa first.
So the schwa's down, we now have [ʒsɥi] and that's really hard to say. [ʒ] is "voisé" (that means you use your voice to say it) and [s] is "non voisé" (that means you don't). Try and say "jim" with your hand on your throat, but like really make last that j, and you'll feel the vibrations, then say "ssssim", do you feel the vibrations? You don't, because your vocal cords aren't working. Now say "jsim" ?
No Man’s Sky’s community is really awesome. They share co-ordinates to their farms so that others can use the resources or resell them for units. I was able to scrape together 1 million by myself, but by visiting one community farm I was able to bump that up to 50 million so that I could finally afford to upgrade from my starter ship.
