Chalk is composed of the skeletons of countless microbes, long-dead, even their seas are now dead.
When chalk squeals on a blackboard it is the impotent scream of countless dying wraiths as their reliquaries are annihilated

The handshake: is a way of making physical contact, and defining personal distance.

A single from Leipzig to Wurzen now costs €6.80, up from €6.60 from last time I was here, an increase of 3%, which sounds like 'adjusting for inflation'.

(Mobility movement) idea: freeze all rail fares! This would eventually become 'free' rail transport.

my 1 kg tungsten cube. i have never been so cautious of an item's gravitational potential energy. i store it in low places because pretty much anything it falls on from any height will break. it is one of my favorite possessions.

The Big 3 asset managers cast 25% of votes in the board elections of S&P 500 firms. Soon they alone hire & fire leaders of nearly all big companies.

Hayeks idea was that markets are effective because information is decentralised. Is this centralisation not causing inefficiency?

The idea behind index funds was to passively track the market and get the average return for low costs. But not only do these funds actively influence the markets, they soon alone have influence over board elections.

My uncle just finished 1.6 kg, 700 pages long dictionary of Northern Sami, a language spoken by around 20,000 speakers.

Sami are an indigenous people who have inhabited large parts of Northern Europe spanning from Russia to Norway for millenniums.

He has dedicated his life to advocate for their rights and preserve their languages and culture. This book is a major contribution in an effort to ensure that this ancient language will be passed on to future generations.

I just planted my first tree and am very excited to see what happens (in a few years... 🕜 )

@marenka @pizzalableipzig @schwarz10 - make an introduction post, then I'll make a post about you!

Kann jemand mir eine Instanz für empfehlen? Freunde von mir wollen Veranstaltungen in und Neuigkeiten von der Stadt verteilen!

How do you deal with notices? Right now I go through the horrible menus and accept only required - which I hate. Is it really that bad to accept all? Looking for advice.
