tokusatsu, Kyuuranger Show more
I've watched the first episode of Kyuuranger and got a Thought. Normally, we talk about tv shows made to sell toys in negative terms, and I totally agree about its effects on consumerism and stuff, but while watching this show I saw it in a different light? I can't know for sure, but the props in the show do look like they could be the actual toys that are being sold. Combined with the general production value, it creates this strange sort of participatory feel? The connection between the show and the person who might play-reenact it is strong, because in many ways, the show's form, feel and aesthetic is that of a child playing with toys.
It's a strange thing I haven't felt like that in similar toy shows like MLP or Transformers. I have no doubt that they're on some level aware of this in tokusatsu shows.

32000 years ago, during the last ice age, an Arctic ground squirrel was gathering food, which it took back to its burrow. That squirrel never ate all of the fruit and seeds it stashed, and so they stayed there, buried under the Arctic permafrost. Forgotten.
Until the squirrel's ancient home was discovered by a group of Russian scientists. The research team managed to grow 36 plants from those ancient seeds. Here's one of them – an ancient type of campion (Silene stenophylla).

Now that we know that the damage to the Notre Dame was less bad than initially assumed, my thoughts keep going back to the fire in the national museum of brazil. So much was destroyed there. What a tremendous loss.
That being said! If you have access to archives and scan/photograph things, keep those copies. They may be poor quality, but a day may come where that's the only thing left. We are fortunate to be able to fairly quickly duplicate content, and much of culture and knowledge has only survived as someone's copy. We are all each other's archives.
(And fight those invasive copyright laws that threaten culture and civilization itself. Seriously.)

The fire didn't reach the bell towers, but I wonder if there were high temperatures in the tower. Bells are made of metal and fairly sensitive to changes in their makeup. I wonder if the bells sound slightly different now...
Starting this Friday night is Pesach/Passover for a week, and then starting May 5th is Ramadan for a month
During this time of year you should be extra mindful and CW food, especially bread, in order to be considerate of us Jews avoiding chametz for Pesach and especially for our Muslim siblings who will be fasting for Ramadan.

Weirdly healing coping strategy while glued to the live feed of the disaster unfolding: Screengrabbing videos and images of the disaster and saving them to my archive, hoping that one day, an archeologist will find them.

It's for these times humans have made religions. For watching from afar as something you love is destroyed by a force beyond any of our control.
game of thrones, not spoilers Show more
I haven't watched past S1 but imo the only good way to end this awful "who will be on the iron throne in the end" is to kill off every single potential heir and then just end the show then and there.
If I'm making a ginger decoction, is it really necessary to discard the solids? I'm trying to make a ginger sugar free candy for my kid who has pretty constant nausea
#plantsourcedmedicine No idea how to tag this lol
I wish German had a word that translated to the full depth of meaning of the word "kind". Most dictionary translations are more along the lines of the comparatively shallow "nice" and "friendly". There's "gütig" which is closer, but it's also it's a bit antiquated, so you wouldn't really describe an actual person like that, I think. Might just be because it isn't used at all in my dialect.
subtoot, nonspecific, not mad, accessibility Show more
I keep seeing people (or maybe the same account over and over again, can't tell) put just the image name in the image description? Like "image.jpg". Why does that happen? Is it some automatic thing on some instances maybe, or a different accessibility standard? (I choose to believe "they just don't know how it works" only when all other options are excluded in instances like this)
