As an example, Earth's radius is 6,378,000 metres.

So an average 1.7m tall human at sea level would see the horizon at 4.7 km away. To a 1m tall child, the horizon would be only 3.6 km away.

From the top floor of the Burj Khalifa, the horizon would be 86 km away.

From the summit of Everest, the horizon would be 336 km away.

From the window of a passenger aeroplane, the horizon would be 384 km away.

"A new map of the entire sky, as seen in X-rays, looks deeper into space than any other of its kind.

The map, released June 19, is based on data from the first full scan of the sky made by the eROSITA X-ray telescope onboard the Russian-German SRG spacecraft, which launched in July 2019."

Oh, come on, autocorrect, you know redstone is one word!

Kid is playing Minecraft with a mod that lets you build miniaturized red stone circuits, and another one that identifies whatever is in the center of the screen.

From a distance, I misread "Tiny Pile of Redstone" as "The Pie of Resistance"

Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”

-> a small rant about how the profit lens distorts our understanding of success vs. failure:

I wish appliances & fixtures would stop breaking during a pandemic. This (leaking garbage disposer) is the first one we haven't been able to work around, fix, or replace ourselves.

Not a big fan of waiting for a plumber on the best of days, but mid-2020 in the US? 😬

why the fuck is "the maya mysteriously disappeared" like a thing you hear online in those pseudo science mystery channels??? like, we know where the Maya are, they're in Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize. there's like 6 million people who speak Mayan languages with a clear cultural continuity from like 900ad to modern day through the colonial period. they're right there, you can go talk to them, I'm sure some of them are lovely people
