I recently read a SciFi Novel which came to be by pure chance, somebody over on discord told about it...

And actually gave me a URL to read it directly online..

w/o giving to much spoilers, i have to confess, that i'm secretly still deeply in love with aineko, one of the characters pictured... I just cant tell you why..

But i can tell you, it is a very interesting perspective on #posthuman / #posthumanity and #transhumanism in general.

For a very long while, it felt a bit like it could be a prequel to Greg Egans Diaspora.. But... let's say, it took it's own twists to make it a very interesting still different work, which at least shares a lot with the Artiffical Intelligences from Diaspora...

So, if you're a #Hard #SciFi #fan and particularily interested in #transhumanism, #artifical #intelligence and some imaginable future of #humanity.... I can only strongly suggest that you should read:

I find it absurdly reassuring to learn that not only Germans are so stupid. At the same time, I think I’ve completely lost what little faith in mankind I still had.

There are only two rolls of toilet paper between mankind and barbarism. (KAOS)

Why are people stockpiling toilet paper?

Loo roll has become the top "panic buy" item in several countries after coronavirus fears.

Mankind is as intelligent or as stupid as the “news” they consume.
And since most media outlets overdramatize COVID-19, people are afraid and begin to panic despite there being no need to.

I’ve talked to several supermarket people, they are baffled by what happened this last weekend. All they said they did was making a couple of phone calls and regular amounts of goods would be restored one or two days later as their logistics warehouses would not have any issues with the sudden demand.

Facemasks and disinfectant are a different matter, but hey, it’s good to have that stuff home anyway, so, personally speaking, I buy when prices are low and am prepared anyway…

Faith in humanity as a whole is misplaced faith anyway, though.

Is there a way to make disinfectant DIY?

@KAOS I think toilet paper shortage is more visible because stores keep less stock of it because of the bulkiness. As a result, even if it’s bought as much more as other items, it will run out first compared to smaller items that can be stored in larger quantities.

@Pavithran S:

Technically yes, though I don’t know an exact recipe. You need highly concentrated alcohol - use technical stuff, it’s cheaper, more concentrated but not palpable.
You should be able to get that from drugstores or tool shops.

nööö, nur selbst in sich meist keimfrei, frisch nach dem Skirten !!! Horrido!!! Lustvolle Desinfektion???... einzig das Abspuelen der Keime im warmen Urinstrahl waere ein bisschen was von einer desinfektorischen TAT... Der urin elbst enthaelt m.. nichts nennenswert desinfizierendes.. Besser waers ja, urologen waeren dann allerdings pleite...

This is part of the speech of an illegal immigrant to a judge in the Netflix series Messiah (Season 1, Episode 4):
“No-one decides where they were born. Our birthplace was decided by fate. You were born here. I was born there. What’s different? A border is an idea decided by the lucky. Today you sit in the seat of the fortunate. Just remember what put you there. Fate.”

John Pavlovitz: I'm Not The Radical Left, I'm The Humane Middle


Once again, John hits the mark.
I don’t think I’m alone. In fact, I’m pretty sure that most people reside here in this place alongside me: the desire for compassion and diversity and equality and justice; that these things aren’t fringe ideologies or extremist positions—but simply the best way to be human.

'It feels like something out of a bad sci-fi movie'


A top #climate scientist quit #USDA, following others who say #Trump has politicized #science.
Lewis #Ziska, a 62-year-old #plant physiologist who’s worked at USDA’s Agricultural Research Service for more than two decades, told POLITICO he was alarmed when department officials not only questioned the findings of the #study — which raised serious concerns for the 600 million people who depend on #rice for most of their #calories — but also tried to minimize #media coverage of the paper, which was published in the journal Science Advances last year.
