Successfully repaired my Bose qc15 headphones that were broken for months, the left channel was sporadically noisy. One cable had almost broken off apparently (and bad soldering inside).
Repairing can give you the same dopamine as buying something new, but without the hassle of researching what to buy 😅

Seems like getting up at 5:00 fits my sleep cycle much better than the time I usually try to achieve

how to survive hot summers 

with temps surpassing 40º in the UK and my European friends woefully unprepared to deal with hotter and hotter summers, I thought I'd share how we do it back home.

- Change your wardrobe. Don't wear jeans or thick, tight clothing in summer. Light colours help, but it's less important than the fabric being loose and breathable. Imagine you get a gust of wind; can you feel the wind? Linen fabric and synthetic activewear are great for this.

- Cover all your skin when going out into the sun, either with loose breathable clothing, or sunscreen.

- "But I'm only going to the tram" – if you don't like dying of melanoma, sunscreen yourself before walking under the radiation of the nuclear deathstar in the sky.

- Wear a summer hat and/or sunglasses.

- Always be sipping. Doesn't matter if you feel thirsty or not, carry water bottles everywhere, fill them on taps, sip often. If you don't the symptom isn't necessarily thirst; it's feeling tired, sluggish, brainfog etc., eventually sunstroke.

- Learn how to make hydrating serum (1L water, 20g sugar, 5g salt). In case someone has sunstroke give them serum; it hits faster than pure water. (also good for other forms of dehydration.)

- Tea and coffe hydrate you, even accounting for diuretic effect. Alcohol dehydrates; if drinking alcohol, drink at least the same amount of water with it.

- Give up not sweating. Sweating is good. It's a very efficient evaporative cooling system (that's why you need breathable clothing, and sipping water).

- Cold meals, refrigerated fruit and ice drinks are great. Counter-intuitively, hot drinks cool you down too, by hyping up the sweat system. Same goes for hot-spicy food. (this literally cools you down, look it up.)

- Don't go outside when the sun is high. Don't eat in outside tables when the sun is high. Don't go to parks, pools or beaches when the sun is high. Wait until the deathstar isn't killing you.

- Lower your expectations of productivity. It's the apocalypse, fuck work. Procrastinate in the hot hours. Kill time. Nap. Implement the siesta as an institution.

- The buildings here are more prepared for cold weather than hot. You might want to invest in good fans, or even cold floors. High ceilings are fresher.

- The higher the air humidity %, the less effective is sweating at cooling you. Be extra careful on high-humidity high-temp days.

- summer nights can be surprisingly chilly. don't get caught unprepared in your super-breathable, breezy hot girl look during a temp drop with rain and wind outside 3am.

Ich toote hier mal ins Blaue.
Wir betreiben eine Ziegenfarm im Bereich Südheide (Nds).
Wir könnten 20-40ha landw. Flächen zur Pacht anbieten für Menschen die eigene Ideen umsetzen wollen. Wir könnten auch bei Planung und Start helfen und ggf. auch Räumlichkeiten anbieten.
Wir stellen uns eine Kooperationsgemeinschaft separater Betriebe vor in der man sich bei Arbeitsspitzen hilft und Synergien nutzt.
Bedingung ist Bio, realistisches Vorhaben, Sympathie.

@leah es gab hier in GB letztens eine Situation, wo jemand zum Frauentag einen Twitterbot geschrieben hat, der die hashtags beobachtet und Firmen, die sie benutzen, QRTed mit der (offen nachsehbaren) Statistik zu deren gender pay gap

ich frage mich, ob man sowas auch mit Pride machen könnte... Geldspenden an anti-LGBT+-Politiker/orgs oder so

Worüber ich mich als Jahreskartenbesitzer_in des lokalen Tarifverbunds am meisten beim 9€ Ticket freue?

Bundesweite Gültigkeit.

Grade erst ne halbe Stunde gebraucht um rauszufinden welches Ticket ich am besten nehme für nen Tag in den benachbarten Tarifverbund. Und dann nochmal ne halbe Stunde dafür wie ich das eig. kaufen kann während ich noch nicht in diesem Verbund bin (denn sobald ichs bin ist ja zu spät).

Das heilige römische Tarifzonenreich deutscher Nation muss fallen, ganz ehrlich ey.

Did you know that the green lawn that is so common today was originally a way for the landed gentry to show off their wealth? It was meant to imply the owner could afford to have all this land being non productive, setting them apart from those whose livelihood depended on what they could cultivate.
From the beginning, it was an ostentatious display of obscene wealth.

The massive majority of your life is neither capitalist nor trustless but the opposite. Our families and communities run on solidarity, friendship, generosity and love.

Web3 is literally embracing the parts of life that are broken instead of embracing what's wonderful.
