I realized many of my favorite games are basically about managing technical debt:

- Tetris
- Lumines
- Splatoon 2: Salmon Run
- CSS

Some rough maths to calculate the cost of a new car with a 10 years life cycle. No fuel in the maths.

That costs 133€ / month + eventual car park if any.

If you think that buying a good quality bicycle or an electric bicycle for 3000 € is expensive, a car is a lot more expensive.

When it'll be time for my car, I don't think I'll buy a new one.
I only use it for long travels if no alternative, and renting one for a week is like 150€

My bike is enough for moving around in my city.

reminder: if you made 5000 dollars a day since the year 1219 -- 800 years ago! -- you would still have less total money than Jeff Bezos made *EVERY WEEK* during 2018.

Bezos made over 1.5 billion per week that year; you would only have 1.46 billion

Saw a shop selling "jean socks". ("jocks"? :thaenkin: )

Ok this is actually pretty sweet, someone made a Deathmetal version of Greta Thunbergs speech

it's KIND OF WEIRD to think that Germans just grow up knowing that there's *literally tons* of explosives buried around the towns they live in that MIGHT blow up at any point especially if disturbed but they probably won't so it's just kind of taken as a fact of life

I'd previously mumbled about how growing up in post-WW2 Germany is a bit weird because construction work keeps turning up unexploded bombs and everyone just kind of goes "oh, okay, another one of those"

there was one found in Nuremberg again yesterday but when searching for news reports about it I'm just finding other articles about one found in February (also in Nuremberg)

here's a screenshot of the "related articles" bit from one of them
