Some 'voting is consenting to capitalism' posts popping up on my feed. I understand, but not right now.

#Icelandic has some useful words which English lacks.

(Of course, this will be true of any pair of languages - English and #Icelandic are simply the ones I use the most and know best.)

My favourite such word tends to be "sólarhringur": a sun-circle, the 24 period of one day and one night.

But...

Lately I've been really missing a good translation for "spennufall": literally a "tension drop." It's used to name the deflated feeling you get when you've been stressed or under pressure... and suddenly it's over, whatever it was.

Inexplicably sad after winning a contest? Spennufall.

Feeling empty after passing a difficult exam? Spennufall.

Unable to enjoy your new found freedom after meeting a deadline? Spennufall.

Pretty much any time you should be celebrating but just want to climb into bed and sleep instead, that's probably #spennufall.

It's a very useful word!

Probably most relevant to the Australians out there, since I don't know how raffles work overseas.

Anyway, fellow #blacksmith Seth Wood, recently lost his house, and forge and thus his livelihood to the fires in Central NSW.

The local Queensland Metal Artisans Collective, is running a raffle as a fundraiser, with some awesome donated prizes.

I'll just say this: nonbinary folks are not your thought experiment.

Hi yes, we exist, we're right here. If you're not nonbinary we don't need you ruminating on how our identities could possibly work and implying that they don't.

I don't give a fuck if you can't understand things about how our nonbinary genders or lack thereof work, keep it to yourself
