So, that premium Adult Beverage with the quirky backstory? Frank-Lin Distillery's flavoured bulk ethanol
...They need rail access because the ethanol comes in by the trainload, in tank cars. One of their major suppliers is MGP Ingredients in Illinois. They used to be called Midwest Grain Products, and before that, Midwest Solvents....
Attn: Americans in the Netherlands -- you can vote in the primary today 16:00-21:00 at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. Your vote will likely count more than voting in your states since the global primary sends its own delegates to the convention.
If you miss this one, there's one in Utrecht 7 March and Den Haag 10 March. More info at the Democrats Abroad website: https://www.democratsabroad.org/nl
The EU commissioned a special Donald Duck issue.
Today FTM.nl published this letter, in which the publisher is asked to make changes to how the EU is portrayed.
From an article about the issue by ftm.nl, which is behind a pay-wall.
@kensanata first time i visited europe i was surprised by how much people in a 'first world' country could actually live their whole lives thinking they are 'good people' and 'do no harm to others' (and really, they're not doing anything wrong) and recycling and being nice to their neighbors. without realizing they were working for companies that actively engaged in social exploitation in far-away lands, buying things made by someone that makes 1 dollar a day etc.
because in these first world country everything is so clean and orderly. and the trains come on time and you don't see poor people on the streets. poverty is elsewhere. but it's hard to see how much your life impacts poverty across the globe in these situations. we need to remember, as david harvey always says, how did the food we eat was produced. the things we buy. why are they so cheap? how can i buy a shirt for 5 dollars if getting a haircut where i live costs 4x that?

If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things
I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.
The problem with this is twofold:
- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead
- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either
There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?
Gasoline/Diesel-powered vehicles probably emit more than 3kg/l in CO₂, rather than 2.4-2.5 kg/l as previously thought.
it's a start, but i'm gonna make prints again

This my first shoot with Fomapan 400 Action or any Foma Film in fact.

Holzgebäude als CO2-Senke
Statt auf #Zement und #Stahl sollten wir auf einen altbewährten Naturstoff setzen, sagen Forscher: Nachhaltig produziertes #Holz könnte den #Städtebau von einer Treibhausgas-Quelle in eine #CO2-Senke verwandeln, geht aus ihrer Analyse hervor. Das natürliche #Baumaterial wirkt sich dabei doppelt günstig aus...
