It's been a while so I thought I'd do some editing on my intro.

When I have to use a name, I prefer Ijon or Izzy. Any gender neutral pronouns are fine. I'm GenZ but over 18, and currently studying social pedagogy. After that i might study "special education" (gosh i hate that wording) and possibly psychology

I'm a libertarian socialist and antifascist

I'm neurodivergent/ autistic/ an "immersive daydreamer" (also hate that wording)

I live in Germany and speak English, German, and *some* Italian. Also currently learning some basic arabic.

I'm also a white (probably) dyadic christian european and if I ever say some ignorant bullshit, pls call me out on it

App-Empfehlung, Essen 

Ich bin auf der Suche nach einer iOS-App, mit der ich Essen und dessen Zutaten tracken kann. Beispiel: Ich scanne Barcode des Produkts bzw wähle ein Selbstangelegtes aus und es wird geloggt inkl. der Zutaten, also »Schokoriegel« und »Besteht aus: Zucker, Zucker und Nüssen«. Die Daten müssen easy exportierbar sein. Ziel ist ein Allergietagebuch, bei dem die Daten dieser App einen Teil ausmachen. Weitere Daten wie Pollenflug werden dann extern aggregiert.

Ideen?

Was genau der Grund für den Polizeieinsatz an der Synagoge ist, ist bisher nicht bekannt.

Derzeit läuft der ##JomKippur – der höchste jüdische Feiertag.

Dieser wird traditionell vom 15. bis zum 16. September gefeiert. Ob sich feiernde Gäste in der #Synagoge in Hagen befinden, ist zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt nicht bekannt.

9/11 thoughts 

the constant retraumatizing of people every year on the anniversary by replaying the worst footage also feels really disingenuous the longer it goes on. it smells an awful lot like trying to keep americans as patriotic & xenophobic as they were immediately following 9/11. gotta make sure everyone stays afraid of the scary brown terrorists.

podcast recommendations :boost_requested: 

hey, i'm searching for podcasts recommendations for a friend to get them in touch with radical leftist ideas! the podcast shouldn't be too academic or alienate them and should cover health, disablity, veganism, class, queer and feminist politics (not all at once required)! interview-style podcasts or just two people having a conversation would work best for them. bonus points if it's available on itunes. either german/english.

Protips for interacting with American police: 

- If you go up to a cop and say that you plead the Fifth, and the Fourth prevents them from searching you for no reason, you likely just gave them a reason to illegally search you as a matter of personal pride.

- It's completely legal to record a public servant as they carry out their duties, but they have guns, tasers, and batons. You don't. They can take your phone/camera away and there's not much you can do about it.

- Yes they're breaking the law. Who are you gonna call, the meta-cops???

- Keep your head down, record as much as you can, record as subtly and secretly as you can, meekly comply to any requests, and calmly leave if given an opportunity. Then bring all the footage to the American Civil Liberties Union. Anonymously, if at all possible, so they don't seek revenge on you specifically.

- They WILL seek revenge if you get them in trouble. They WILL figure out it was you, somehow. They investigate threats against their own perfectly.

- Stay safe.

Do y'all ever start watching or reading something with completely wrong expectations?

When I started watching AlRawabi School For Girls, I assumed it would be some lightharded drama to watch before going to bed.

yeah...no

Companies: *literally dump tons upon tons of plastic waste in the ocean*

Also companies: how dare you use a plastic straw you asshole this is your fault.

Asking my mom to taste my smoothie to find out if its gone bad, just to have her tell me that she doesnt like smoothies anyway. Followed by her trying to explain to me how to find out, and me not understanding a word (How am i supposed to know if something "tastes good" without knowing if it still is good??)

since i put "into the crooked place" (the book) on my wishlist, ive had the "into the think of it"-song stuck in my head

I'm in a public one, and we've been getting some toxic ppl lately. So an invite-only one would be... good

Does anyone know any particular sources for basic Farsi and/or Pashto?

I'm starting to look at local refugee/immigrant support services and it would be handy to have a few basic phrases under my belt.
