For 100 years, the version of Dracula that was being sold in the Icelandic language was actually an entirely new piece of fanfiction written by the translator. And apparently it's really fucking good, so it has recently been translated back into English as "Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula"

pondering about my own racism, somewhat mh meta 

I just realized that a lot of what I thought of as my own racism was actually intrusive thoughts.
Those obviously do change my behavior in a negative way too, esp since I was actively overcorrecting for them. But I have to approach them differently to the other racism stuff.

So I guess I now have to untangle what is intrusive thought and what isn't.

Heard the story of the girl throwing starfish into the ocean? A man watching her says "don't you know there are miles of beach and you can't make a difference?"

The girl bends down and scoops up another starfish and gently throws it into the ocean, turns to the man and says "it made a difference to that one".

I often think of this story when world events make me feel powerless. I can't help everyone, but I can help *someone*.

So... if anyone needs me to throw them into the sea, I'm here.

If you can never remember if you've already sent a follow request to someone, I have a tip for you.

When I send a follow request, I now write it on their profile since you can leave a note there!

Perhaps that's obvious, but I still share it in case than can help, especially if you have ADHD, are autistic and / or deal with memory problems!

Fun fact: legendary microbiologist Carl Woese possessed a custom-labelled "Primordial Soup" can. The label was made in the late '80's/early 90's by another microbiologist, Jim Brown, then a postdoc at the University of Illinois. storied.illinois.edu/curiositi

Brown later made an updated, high-res version: web.archive.org/web/2005111700

"Be careful with each other so we can be dangerous together" is the best slogan I've heard in a while.

Ah yes, the double edged sword of ACHOO (aka photic sneeze reflex): using the sun to be able to sneeze after the sun got me to the point of almost but not quite sneezing x)

If you're screening your follow requests, it's probably not a good idea to reject or block someone just because their profile picture is empty.

There are many blind people on the Fediverse who don't use profile pictures. For example, the writer Robert Kingett at @blindscribe doesn't use one.

The most reliable way to screen accounts on here is just to read what they have posted, as this better reflects what kind of account they are.

Wenn ich mit Leuten gute Zeit verbracht habe, hab ich immer direkt das Bedürfnis, das mit meinen (anderen) Partnerpersonen zu teilen und ihnen zu erzählen dass ich sie liebhabe..
Liebesgefühle vervielfältigen sich quasi automatisch? <3

Sorry for calling off a stream on such short notice *again*, but due to multiple reasons, I won't stream today.
Potentially I'm gonna make up for it tomorrow, together with @lara. If everything works out.

apartment for rent, looking for a next tenant in Berlin :boost_ok:​ 

We're moving out and are looking or a next tenant.
It's a 3-room apartment (62 sq.m.), in a relatively old building (1925), with central heating and central warm water, on raised ground floor, in front of a tram stop (trams go at 3-minute intervals, 10 minutes ride time to S-Bahn Ring and 20 minutes to Alexanderplatz), just for 630 euro cold / 820 euro warm.

Is anybody interested? :)
