You would think that a phobia of heights would get better after spending hours up on ladders house painting.
You would be vastly overestimating the kindness of my brain.
This is right shit, do any of you kind people have tips for mastery of phobias? I feel woozy standing on a chair, I can face my fear but I would rather not experience it.
Sharing this here as it is rare I come across people who know this exists let alone have looked at it:
Fair warning, the how it's made for your food isn't pretty but if it's good enough for your plate it should be good enough for your eyes.
We like to pretend farming in Australia is all just good clean fun, this project stands as testimony against that.
I put to you that if you call yourself an animal lover you ought to have a look her with an open mind.
Does anyone know if kidney weed and white clover will cohabitate as a lawn mix?
Thinking of sewing clover to start rehabilitating the lawn (compacted, nitrogen starved, mostly sand and regret) and if I could replace all the grass with something more water wise that also never needs a mow that would be pretty ace.
We know interrupting sleep is bad. Our specific implementation of daylight savings has a body count every year: https://www.smh.com.au/national/queensland/it-s-more-than-the-time-of-day-the-facts-behind-daylight-saving-20201001-p56181.html
If we want to keep it it is time to write to your mp and propose an investigation into whether the shift can be implemented in smaller increments over a longer time (e.g. 15 minutes each week). In the age of IP clocks and NTP this is now feasible. We could literally save lives by trying.
Mental health but happy
I don't understand my brain, spring is a hard switch to bursting with joy. I feel full of energy and positivity and yet if you ask how I'm doing in winter I'm like "excuse me I don't mean to be rude but this conversation is taking up valuable time in which you could be putting a bullet through my head".
It would be lovely to isolate the cause of this change so I could be my best self all year round.
Tech culture critique, with apologies to our newest friend
A few months old but worth a read. A look into how tech culture focuses in the superficial and the gap between how tech billionaires view themselves vs what they actually do to the world.
I like food, hitting hot iron, motorcycles, games of all kinds, books, and Oxford commas.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
