I love that his author and her fans kept using this as an example of how piracy hurts sales and yet the result of her test is that her book sold out. The results of this experiment don't show that piracy hurts, they show that giving away four chapters of a book increases sales.
I was going to go to bed early and now it's 6am and I should probably give up on finding a meme to discribe what actually happened
@00dani even cuter because despite being called firefox its official animal is the red panda which is objectively the most adorable animal in the world

A woman wearing a backpack with #nothim written on it (a hashtag created against the far-right candidate) was beaten, undressed, and imprisoned by cops until she declared she would support their candidate to them. Even if Bolsonaro doesn't win the election, a lot of damage has been done already.

Seriously, someone make, like, open source duolingo you can load all sorts of lessons into. It would be amazing. Honestly I might be willing to tackle it myself, if I can find the time around my new job. :/
UK cis folks: PLEASE go and fill out this survey before the end of the week to help out our trans siblings.
Should only take you twenty minutes or so, if you're writing your own answers, but you can copy paste the examples.
