A bronze monument in the village of Lidice, Czech Republic, dedicated to 82 children who were killed by the Nazis in 1942 because they were Jewish. Never forget.
What of someone invented a machine that allowed women to transfer their pregnancies to men and then the government passed a law that if a woman didn't want to have a baby the biological father was required to carry it how fast do you think birth control would stop being an issue?
"IT'S UNETHICAL TO FORCE SOMEONE TO CARRY A BABY" men shout.
"NO FUCKING SHIT" women reply.

The more Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook run into controversy, the more I think that the concept of social networks just doesn't scale well beyond roughly a few thousand people.

Even though I'm not on Twitter anymore, I see lots of blog posts starting off with some variation of "People are divided! Can't we all just get along?" or "People are so wrong about this!

Twitter is not the world. The world is not divided and angry and fighting over every minor thing. It just looks that way if you spend all day using Twitter.
The Digital Public Library of America has re-released the Mueller Report as a well-formatted ebook instead of a crappy PDF
Du wirst in einem privatwirtschaftlichen Krankenhaus geboren, verbringst die Jugend in zerfallenden Schulen um auf die nächsten 50 Jahre Ausbeutung vorbereitet zu werden. Wenn dich das völlig kaputtgesparte Gesundheitssystem überleben lässt, fällst du in ein verarmtes, unsolidarisches Rentensystem und landest schließlich in einem völlig unterbesetzten Pflegeheim in dem du, in deinen Exkrementen sitzend, auf den Notrufknopf drückend, endlich stirbst.

I made a responsive CSS Grid version of the Periodic Table of the Elements. Not a tutorial. More of a post hoc justification. http://adrianroselli.com/2019/05/periodic-table-of-the-elements.html
