There's a reason why Oklahoma wouldn't recognize MLK Day as a holiday until businesses and customers boycotted it until it was dragged kicking and screaming into compliance. There's a reason why Oklahoma Governor Stitt got re-elected despite his failure to deliver on his promise to make Oklahoma the central business hub of the U.S. Oklahoma's bigot culture only went tacit from blatant over the MLK issue, but right after Stitt's re-election earlier this month, Oklahoma blatantly flew its bigot freak flag in Shawnee Mall, whose owners and operators approved for this to happen:

that's so cool they get along
It is. So heartwarming. ❤

Don't knock it til you've tried it.
And I'm gonna try it, having eaten pinto bean pie in the past, and with an appreciation for what the Japanese can do with bean curd. As for me, I say YUM!

not singing their national anthem to express protest, thus risking jail and death 🏆
not wearing those fake rainbow armbands, thus avoiding the risk of a Yellow Card 🤦‍♂️

The energy crisis, and German universities. (Article in german.)

So this is where we are, at present:
  • The Hochschule Koblenz (roughly, Polytechnic Koblenz), will move all lectures online for the time of 4th of December to 8th of January. (In practice, thats about three weeks of teaching.)
  • The University of Mainz will close some of their library branches on the weekend.
  • The University of the Saarland (which is basically the University of Saarbruecken with a couple of branches) opts to extend the winter holiday.
  • The University of Erfurt plans to close all libraries on the weekend and move all teaching around the end of the year to online.
Thats all not great. And students who just went through two years of covid get another shit sandwich. But overall the measures seem to be... not that bad? The best options among all the bad ones available? At least for the time being?

Of course, all these universities externalise some heating costs to the students. If you don't heat a lecture room and move the teaching online, you save money and potentially some students have to pay more for heating their homes. I don't think any of the universities mentioned above does this on purpose, but that doesn't help the most vulnerable students.

Fuck you Elon Musk, you anti-union, megalomaniacal, X Æ A-XII-son-calling piece of shit.

Please retweet this and then join Me.


YET! Hahaha. Social networking is a highly personal thing in terms of which social networking environment makes you happy and comfortable. Personally, I find the Mastodon experience more warm and cozy than any other environment. But that's me. YMMV.
