My #Hoya phuwuaensis, the oldest of the #hoyas in my collection, is finally #flowering. The #flowers aren't quite fully opened but I'm going out of town for the weekend and will probably miss the best of it.

New account, new attempt at an #introduction, I guess :blobCat:

I'm someone who would like #reading, #drawing/creating #art and #writing, particularly in #fantasy and other speculative genres, but between dayjob, trying to keep my home livable, and mental health issues, I mostly just watch video. In addition to fantasy I like #scifi #movies and #series, including #animation.

#Plants, #animals and #nature in general is awesome, and I love sharing photos or nerdy facts.

Liquid: Sulfuric acid, Formic acid, ...

Gas: Ammonia, ???

Can you,

a) Fill in the missing part? (a pure neutral Brønsted–Lowry base that is liquid at room temperature/pressure and has no more than one carbon in it)

b) Find a similar but gaseous one other than Ammonia?

You know the thing in Futurama where the bureaucrats fly desks around to access enormous walls of filing cabinets?

That’s a real thing!!! (!!!!!)

scientific papers that the world needs, funny 

People can say “but it’s not the real/original work”, but I mean XD we change *every word* when it’s translated into a new language. And we often talk about and discuss which translations are good and which aren’t and the problems and merits of them and help each other find good ones when someone wants to read a classic work.

So why don’t we do this with translations across time, like we do with translations across space (geography/language)?

I would like to see more support for translating the great works of the past into a modern form that keeps the depth and plot and everything that expands your mind...but without the pointless sexism/racism/etc. that implodes your mind,

And less of the blaming people for being "weak" and inferior for not wanting to having to constantly expend energy to combat the construction of terrible implicit biases in their intuitive mind due to it being normalized or supported or glorified by the author.

me: Ah finally I finished everything in time to get to sleep and shift my schedule back. I slept too little today just for that and I've really been needing to do that so I'm not awake when it's freezing nighttime.

I'm really happy to see the trend in FOSS :opensource: licenses is moving towards MIT and Apache like licenses and we are seeing GPL like licenses being abolished slowly.

Free means Free!
