🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The site of Scottish Parliament at Holyrood will fall under the 'Serious Organised Crime and Police Act' this Friday 🤷 🤦‍♂️

This will make it an offence to be on the site without lawful authority up to 12 months in prison/£5000 fine! 😠

On Saturday there will be an action to say🖕by making a human chain around the parliament at 10:45! 🤝 🤝 🤝 Come, invite everyone.

Fb event:

"Bundnis 90/Die Grünen" sollten sich einfach "Die Grünen" jetzt nennen.

Ich will nicht Geschichte wegwerfen, aber der Name ist jetzt nur verwirrend und unnötig

Just explained to family member why local temperatures in some areas can decrease, despite global temperature increase.

Last week I went on for an interview and to make more digestable content , I've clipped out some of the highlights from it. There were 8 clips that I took which you can find in this thread. In the first one I spoke about my "aha" moment. (1/8)

lol, there is both the 'Scottish Socialist Party' *and* the 'Socialist Party Scotland' ✊ 🍞 🌹

I'm sure there are legit reasons for them not being joined, but there are only like 6m people in Scotland, and all I can think of is the Judean People's Front... or was that the People's Front of Judea? 🙈 🤦‍♂️

on the subject of usb-c have you seen pcb-only usb ports? scribe the right sigils into your circuit board design program and choose the right thickness and you can just plug a cable straight into your pcb with no port hardware

It seems quite easy to push a group towards a decision by making any concrete, implementable proposal: a good one may be gratefully accepted; a bad one stimulates the development of others.

But what about if a group isn't ready? If the topic is complex or contentious, pressure can be counterproductive. Anyone got tips for 'backing up' to creatively examine situations?

oh nice, they're doing a bollywood remake of run Lola run

Wow! Scottish Parliament introduced free bus travel for 5 - 18 year olds this March, and will be extending it up to 21 year olds the beginning of next year!

We've been having a bit of a summer (well, autumn soon) pause for Karrot, especially as I (@nicksellen) have been on a bike tour 🚲 🏕️

BUT we have very exciting news! 📰

We're through to the next round of the nlnet funding thing we applied for 🤑 💰 💸

Will be bigger celebration if we get all the way, but nice to celebrate for now! 🎈 🍾
