"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

Anyway, I'm not saying anything original to me or to other people here, but all you really need to know about how invested science is in knowing its own history is that people still think the primary goal of alchemy was to literally turn lead into gold

@Colophonscrawl as an angry basic bitch feminist, may i offer another example of this:

science is so invested in knowing its own history that people still think that watson and crick discovered the structure of dna instead of discovered rosalind franklin's notes

PSA: please don't say 'get well soon' to someone you know has a chronic illness. We aren't going to get well soon, hence the word 'chronic'.

'Get well soon' always makes me feel like I'm a failure because when the person next talks to me, I'm still not well. Or like the person just doesn't want to acknowledge the true state of my illness.

You can say something like 'I hope your symptoms improve a bit'. Or even, 'I hope they find a cure(!)'.

Do other spoonies have any suggestions of things people can say instead of 'get well soon'?
