Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the #Fediverse? πŸ—ΊοΈ

It's a set of community projects that use the #ActivityPub standard to talk to each other.

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

Instagram -> PixelFed πŸ“·

YouTube -> PeerTube 🎞️

SoundCloud -> Funkwhale 🎧

MeetUp -> GetTogether 🍻

...and many others.

science fact 2: if u bury a small cow in the ground it grows into a full cow!

science fact: if u bury a doritos can in the ground it grows into a whole bag of chips!

I have four "cool space/physics" facts I love like a kid clutching his favorite toys.

(1) Is the double slit experiment because duh

(2) Is Baade's window and the fact that there's a great curtain of dust preventing us from seeing 99.999% of the Milky Way's stars that we COULD otherwise be seeing.

(3) is the fact that the "midpoint" between a planck length and the size of the universe is the order of magnitude typical of living cells.

(4) is that thing I just shared.

Those are my things

Up for an astonishing space fact that you probably haven't heard?

Here's physicist Paul Davies, from his book Other Worlds (1980).

There's a Medicare For All study that, predictably, says it saves a ton of money. And there's a reddit thread about it.

Then there are people who SOUND like they are disagreeing with the substance study but are really making a small academic point bout difference between single payer vs multi-payer systems, but aren't objecting to the cost savings which are like 99.99% of the substance of the study.

And people are replying to THAT saying "yeah, see, this is why we can't trust the study."

Writing a Christmas card for relatives:

Christmas is a time for rejoicing the birth of a poor, brown skinned refugee who preached against the wealth and religious hypocrisy until he was killed by a military superpower.

Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
