Hey! I'm trying to see something, so please boost this!
If you're bilingual (*fluent* in two languages and speak both on a regular basis), please answer this poll!! (it's multiple choice)
*in the third option, I mean the level of someone who only speaks one language at a native speaker's level
**in the fourth option, I mean you feel as if you can't hold up to standards of a native speaker's level and it makes you feel out of place, eg. in groups of native speakers, at work etc.

Je trouve ça très intéressant : une dissertation, ce n'est *pas* de la philosophie : youtube.com/watch?v=jSWFkGY6O-

La , c'est comment faire des belles phrases et citer d'autres belles phrases hors de leur contexte, sans faire de recherche, sans se documenter sur le sujet. C'est un truc de tchatche, en fait. Un truc de politicien. Ça n'a rien à voir avec la .

Et les disserteurs à la Onfray, ce ne sont pas des philosophes ! Ils n'ont tout simplement rien publié en philosophie. Ils ont juste écrit des livres sans se documenter sur le sujet avant (covid-18 🤣🤣🤣).

Mais du coup, ça remet bien en place comment l'enseignement de la philosophie en France est du grand n'importe quoi 😕

Of course freakonomics.com/podcast/the-e… destroys my nice little model and its assumptions.

People are actually very attached to the numbers and won't adjust their office hours based on local suntime:
> [ . . . ] Huntsville, Alabama (on the eastern edge of the Central Time Zone), and Amarillo, Texas (on the western edge). Even though cities like this are on the same clock, the western city gets roughly an hour more of sunlight – which means that people there tend to go to bed later. But they have to wake up the same time as people in the eastern city – so, on average, they get less sleep.
[ . . . ]
> And we find that permanently increasing sleep by an hour per week for everybody in a city, increases the wages in that location by about 4.5%.
If Amarillo, Texas would just go to office an hour later than they do, that difference wouldn't be there.

But then again they say in the episode that the early bird does catch the worm. So I guess it's complicated. Again.

It was considered a medicine. The rules for that are extremely vague and I suspect it depends on how zealous the person handling the case is.

Oh well, I'll have to find a source in the EU.

In any case, they could maybe... communicate? If the thing is not allowed then it's not their fault, but it took them 18 days between when they asked for info and when they returned it? And they just send paper letters without any electronic notification when they have my phone number and email address and I'm looking at it in the app?

Okay, I called them, and they said it's because the drugs I ordered were "not allowed to be transported into Sweden". Interesting, given that I read in several places online that it was not forbidden. But maybe there is a difference between "allowed" and "not forbidden"?

I love Postnord.

I buy something in the US on 2020-09-23.
2020-09-30: arrives in Sweden.
2020-10-15: I get a letter, dated 2020-10-08, saying that I need to send them information about the contents. Cool, I fill in the form online.
2020-10-20: I get a letter, dated 2020-10-16, saying that I need to send information about the contents. ???? I call, and they tell me to just wait, because probably the info hadn't been processed yet.
2020-10-26: I check the app, and it says the package will be returned. No explanation. No notification.

It takes forever to go by train from Stockholm to Germany, let alone to France. You have to change in many places, nothing is direct. This tunnel will save a lot of time when it's finished, allowing travel from København directly to Germany.

PL politics, women's rights, PLEASE boost 


Oh I figured it out, there is a bug. I will just have to delete the first 38844960 lines and the rest is correct.

At least one of my simulations has started. And I might have made a mistake:

$ wc -l tauw.dat
38974320 tauw.dat

(this is just the beginning)

I really want to code, but I have a paper to write instead

tfw you're debugging something and look at source code from 1989

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Due to recent events, I read so much wrong things about #Fedilab

- No, Fedilab was a paid app before the gab matter. The goal was to move people to F-Droid (Fedilab got more than 50k active users at this time)

- No, I didn't remove the free version, it was taken down by Google due to donation links.

- Yes, in-app login block is useless. That will never prevent your account to see messages from instances that you don't want to see.

And yes, the app has all tools to build your safe place.
