uspol, vaccine patents 

"But if we take vaccine patents what will happen next pandemic when corporations don't make vaccines?"

You know all those juicy government contracts paid for by taxpayers? Those are what fund those vaccines, not the hope of selling them; that's a double-dip pharma shouldn't be allowed to have to begin with.

Moderna was PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT to produce their vaccine, of course they shouldn't be allowed to sell it too.

So let's say no one wants those gigs since they believe the gov't will just take the patents away. All that money can go to academia for the same hard research, or hire and lab out a government project, or hire a lab in another country if we really must.

Profit incentive is not the only option here; it's not even the best one; it's not even a GOOD one.

So... the Dutch city of Utrecht has an underwater webcam at a particular lock that is not used by ships much in spring. People can watch for fishes waiting to get inland, and can ring a "doorbell" to alert the lock keeper so they might open the lock if there are enough fish waiting...

Spotted a Trans Pride flag with #TransRights written on it while riding the local train. So I went back today to snap a picture. Not easy from a moving train, but I got one ok shot and then another 2 from near by. To my surprise it's waving from the balcony of an Catholic Church.

software licenses 

So I've been running into software licenses that are pretty much free licenses except that they say stuff like, if you violate the Geneva convention or you harm indigenous communities, you can't use this.

And I'm like... you're gonna sue war criminals for copyright infringement?? What's the plan here?

There’s a new sigh emoji but before you use it, consider:

The Apple Emoji looks very… relieved while the Google one looks very done with their life.

Tomorrow is a shop drop but I'm pretty sure this critter is going to take days to de-lint so it probably won't make it in.

My mother is funny. She has two plush dragons in “teal” and “mango.”

And when I pointed out that those are Cyan and Yellow, she went and ordered a third, fuchsia dragon to be Magenta.

As I went from lower paying jobs to higher paying ones, I've found that the chance of joining a company that enforces mandatory drug testing decreased.

I'm now wondering if mandatory drug testing exists simply to punish the poor, make getting out of poverty harder.

abusive parents, looking for a place to stay [semipublic repost] 

Hey, so, um...

our parents Have Decreed that we Are going to come stay with them for the summer.

I... given how hard Christmas was, I don't think we could handle an /entire summer/...

do any of y'all maybe have room to take us in? because we can't exactly stay here if they're not paying the rent/food.

burning this bridge is a Big Thing and I'm kinda scared but like... yeeeeah. mh-wise... going with them would Not be good.

mutual aid request, escaping from abusive parents :boost_requested: 

So, uh, hi!

Our parents Have Decreed that we Are moving back in with them for the summer...
which, given how bad Christmas was... I really don't think we can handle that. It's rapidly approaching worst-case scenario.

So we're trying to get away.

We may or may not have a place to stay yet, not sure, but it'd be nice to have some money to help us get on our feet when we get there, not starting from zero.

Recently in public statements in front of Congress, to customers, and in court, Apple has claimed that there were two eras in selling software: in boxes on retail shelves, and then their App Store.

Apple is full of shit. They're trying to erase the largest and most significant way people have sold software: directly to others, online.
