- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
Here's an interesting article if you're curious. Apparently it costs the government 20% more than it would to simply give UBI for things like food assistance. But for some reason... Governments want to control what money goes for even at the detriment of social welfare.

My tiny green children have actual soil now, and they're growing up so fast. 💚
DNA is made from sugar, which means that life is sweet.
Any of y'all ever try growing date palm seeds...?
"Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things decay."
No its not human nature that we fight each other and compete, but its what we were taught to do, and until we unlearn that we will take that behavior everywhere

Aardehuizen is a mostly off-grid eco village in the Netherlands. It's built from recycled, repurposed, and locally sourced materials, and gets most of its power from the Sun.
And, well... I kinda want to live in one. Anyone else care to join? Like, maybe we can snag a patch of land somewhere and just be free.
For everybody disappointed with today result in the European Parliament on A8-0245/2018 aka as Voss report on copyright reform please note:
1. The thing is not over yet
2. A lot can be done lobbying your local government
3. Just repeating buzzwords does not work
4. Use this opportunity to learn it all works: co-decision procedure, voting list, amendments ...
... because #EuParl is still the best thing that could happen to the European Union.
Seems like the internet is getting smaller every year as clueless bureaucrats gradually chisel away at it...
...and you will know us by the trail of bread.

Seeing as I live in France now, I was wondering why cheese and red wine are such a popular taste combination. Turns out, it's all about the sharp flavours.

I'm enjoying the ageing socialist propaganda on campus...
