Women + aging
If you're young & scared of getting old, one thing you can do is to learn to appreciate older women, to not discount them or use them as a joke, to intentionally change your view of their bodies & features so you see positives & not some scary future for yourself. It'll be far easier to accept yourself if you've had practice from afar. And it makes things better for the current oldies, eh? It's all the patriarchy, but it hurts much more coming from young women than from any man.
Ok, here comes my #introduction: I'm a part-time activist and avid reader, #historian by education and #software craftsman by vocation. As such I currently work in a university #library and I like to #hike and to #cycle, to #walk and to #travel. I occasionally take #photos with my DSLR. I'm an advocate for social justice and for a society of the free and equal.
If you're playing a single-player game and you're not going for a scoreboard, there's literally no reason not to play the game the way you want.
Play on the difficulty you want, whether that's easy or ultra.
Use as many mods and cheats as you want to make the game into what you want it to be.
Reload saves and abuse the hell out of save states if that helps you enjoy the game more.
Don't let anyone tell you you're less of a gamer because you "play the game wrong". Just have fun. #gameing

People start to create various different Code of Conducts and it seems like people want to take them into account for the decision if they use a software.
We have OSI, GNU and similar organs to standardize software licenses. I guess it would be good to have an organ to standardize CoCs and build kind of a construct to make clean which are compatible and standardized so we can say this project follows Contributor-convent-v1.4 and XYZ-v2 like we say this project uses AGPL-3.0 or MIT license
Gesucht: Wissenschaftler.innen (am liebsten in Berlin), die sich mit Hypervigilanz, Wahn, Paranoider Verarbeitung von Informationen und der Psychologie von Verschwörungstheorien beschäftigen. V.a. in Bezug auf den Auslöser Kontrollverlust. #followerpower
