Was ich eben erlebt habe...

Weg zum Bäcker... riesiger Walnussbaum.... will mir welche aufsammeln,

werde ich angemeckert, von oben...
Kateeker (Eichkatze = #Eichhörnchen)

haha denk ich, lustig und bück mich wieder. Da schmeißt das Tier Nüsse... gezielt... zweimal,
* auf den Kopf getroffen 😮

Ich guck hoch, es schaut runter, Nuss zwischen den Krallen... knabbert dann weiter.

Steck zwei Nüsse in die Tasche und weg 🙄 🤣

(🐿 nicht im Bild, war zu hoch)

I like how the librarian's first thought upon encountering a bat on a library shelf was "I have just the book for this!!!"

I saw this coming two years ago: signs asking people to mask and distance have not been removed, even though they are no longer applicable/enforced. This has the effect of training people to disregard public safety information. 🤦‍♂️

HH: giving away 2 Wake The Dead tickets 

A friend and I won't make it to Hamburg for the Wake The Dead postpunk/gothic festival this weekend (Sep.30 to Oct. 2). So I have two tickets to pass on, one for the entire 3 days, and one only for Saturday (Oct. 1). DM if interested.

You know you can help fund civilian rescue ships in the Mediterranean, right? Since our European government is trying to kill people every day.

Italian government especially hates those ships and constantly gets in their way. Like they blocked a ship recently, ignoring court rulings, because they rescued too many people and things like that. It's going to get worse after the election.

Sea-Watch is preparing another ship and they are not the only ones out there.

An evergreen reminder: your time and energy is valuable, so don't let bad-faith actors rob you of it. Block and move on.

Due to recent events, I´d like to ask my fellow Europeans once again to please stop electing fascists.

We´ve tried it. It´s shit.

Kind regards from Germany,

Classic Oregon Coast atmospheric photos 

Took doggo to the coast for a sweet little hike. Started in the sun on one side of a hill, then the fog rolled in and changed the view by the time we'd turned around to hike back.

Unzensiertes Internet ist wichtig für eine freie Gesellschaft. Genau deshalb wird es im #Iran gerade abgedreht.
Wie sie mittels des Browser-Addons Snowflake einfach helfen können, haben wir hier dargestellt: #MahsaAmini

"2014 forderte ich Politikerinnen auf: Wenn ihr nach Iran reist und diesen barbarischen Gesetzen folgt und einen Hidschab tragt, bedeutet das, dass ihr unsere Unterdrücker legitimiert, noch mehr Druck auf uns auszuüben. Nach dem brutalen Tod von Mahsa gebe ich nicht nur der Islamischen Republik die Schuld, sondern auch allen Politikerinnen, die den Hidschab in Iran getragen haben."

Westen, Osten, all things are connected.

In Solidarität mit den mutigen Menschen in Ostkurdistan (Rojhilat), die gerade eben trotz großer Gefahren gegen das mörderische iranische Regime protestieren. Es gibt viele Verletzte. Jîna Mahsa Amini bleibt unvergesslich! #MahsaAmini #ZhinaAmini #JinaAmini

"but what we mean isn't that it can't be translated, just that it's not like, word for word"

yeah but that's just like, words?? no word corresponds word by word to another language. word-level glossing isn't translation. like even the simplest words, do you think "cat" correspond to "gato"? yeah sure your pet cat is a "gato", but jaguars, lions and tigers are all cats and none of them are gatos. or nekos, for that matter. a sexy boyfriend is a gato but not a cat; an annoying bf can be cattish, but not gateiro, though one can sneak neko to feign one's real intentions, but that's neko-kaburi, rather than being nekoppoi; a gato can also be an improvised hack to steal energy or cable TV, while a neko can be a gay bottom, or if you burn your tongue easily you have a neko tongue, but no one will point out you have a cat tongue, nor a gato tongue, and so forth.

if that's the criterion then all words are untranslatable. of course that's not what translation is so the notion is nonsense. the so-called untranslatable words are just regular words laced with sparkling exoticism

If you’re in a relationship, or dating someone, how often do you see that person? (Sleepovers, dinners or just hanging out) Please boost!

Wow, thank you Berlin! Tonight, activists projected the slogan for social liberation in Iran onto the Brandenburg Gate and Iranian embassy of Germanys capital. #JinJiyanAzadi
