pyrrhiccomedy:

one of my favorite things is that there is surprisingly little scientific literature about the common house cat, because it turns out cats are the least cooperative research animals on the planet. They don’t care what you want them to do. food? you know what, we’ve decided we’re not even hungry right now. what is this, a maze? we’re gonna sit right here and lick ourselves for the next forty-five minutes, what are you gonna do about it.

it’s like, “okay science, we’ve done about 4000 tests to determine the intelligence and emotional perspicacity of domestic dogs, let’s do cats next”

“well sir, we’ve conducted a full battery of all the standard tests”

“glad to hear it science, what did you learn”

“sir our findings indicate that cats are dicks”

11 Jobs That No Longer Exist

var imagebase='file://D:/Program Files (x86)/FeedReader/'; 11 Jobs That No Longer Exist 16:48 01.03.2014, mayank, amazing, World Of Technology 1. Bowling Alley Pinsetter

Bowling alley pinsetters were young boys employed at bowling alleys to set up the pins for clients.

2. Human Alarm Clock


Knocker-uppers were essentially alarm clocks – they were hired to ensure that people would wake up on time for their own jobs. They would use sticks, clubs or pebbles to knock on clients’ windows and doors.

3. Ice Cutter

Before modern refrigeration techniques became widespread, ice cutters would saw up the ice on frozen lakes for people to use in their cellars and refrigerators. It was a dangerous job often done in extreme conditions.

4. Pre-radar Listener For Enemy Aircraft

Before radar, troops used acoustic mirrors and listening devices like these to focus and detect the sound of engines from approaching aircraft.

5. Rat Catcher


Rat catchers were employed in Europe to control rat populations. They ran high risks of suffering bights and infections, but helped prevent these from spreading to the public.

6. Lamplighter


Lamplighters used long poles to light, extinguish and refuel street lamps – until electric lamps were introduced

7. Milkman
Before suitable refrigeration and preservation techniques were available, milk had to be delivered daily, or else it would spoil. This was the daily job of the milkman.

8. Log Driver
Before the technology or infrastructure was available to transport logs by truck, log drivers would float and guide them down rivers from logging sites to processing areas.

9. Switchboard Operator

Switchboard operators were integral parts of a telephone network’s operation before modern technology rendered them obsolete. They would connect long-distance calls and do other things that are now done digitally.

10. Resurrectionist
Resurrectionists, or “body snatchers,” were hired in the 19th century to remove corpses from graves for universities to use as cadavers. Cadavers from legal means were rare and difficult to obtain, so universities had to resort to other means to procure cadavers for their students.

11. Lector Who Entertained Factory Workers

Broadly speaking, a lector is simply someone who reads. However, they were often hired with money pooled from workers to read to large rooms full of manual laborers to keep them entertained. Some read left-leaning or union publications to the workers.

THE PROPER WAY TO APOLOGIZE

Don’t say, “I’m sorry this offended you”.
Instead say, “I’m sorry I was offensive.

Don’t say, “I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
Instead say, “I didn’t mean to hurt you, but intent means nothing because the damage is already done.”

Don’t say, “It was just a joke.”
Instead sat, “Some things should not be joked about.”

Don’t say, “I wouldn’t try to hurt anyone like that.”
Instead say, “I realize I hurt people with my words, and I’m sorry.

Don’t say, “I‘ll remove the joke if it bothers you so much.” (if posted online)
Instead say, “Yes, I said this, and it was wrong, and now I know not to say things like this again.

Don’t say, “Well other people weren’t bothered by it.”
Instead say, “Well some people weren’t bothered by it, but others were, and their concerns are just as valid and worthy of consideration.

Stop accepting passive apologies that do not show the offensive party actively taking responsibility for their mistakes.

Artist Installs Flocks of Surveillance Cameras and Satellite Dishes Geltner_01

From far away Czech artist Jakub Geltner's works appear as flocks of birds, seagulls and pigeons gathered on clusters of rocks or resting just beneath a busy overpass. When one looks closer however they realize the groupings are not perched birds, but rather surveillance cameras and satellite dishes the artist has installed as a part of his series “Nest.”

Geltner’s most recent installation is titled ‘Nest 05,’ which was presented at the 2015 Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark. The installation, which covers a stretch of mossy rocks, explores the notion of surveillance in even our most peaceful places—the areas we seek when we want to escape.

The Prague-based artist has been installing these works since 2011, bringing together groups of technological equipment commonly used to observe, and turning them into the focal point for the viewer. Within the last four years his works have been placed at a former elementary school, church facade, waterfront, and the skeleton structure of a former KV KSC (Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia).

Geltner lives and works in Prague and graduated from two universities also in the city, Czech Technical University in 2004 and the Academy of Fine Arts in 2013. (via iGNANT)

So I there’s a bridge near my house, and a couple of months ago, I was going to jump off it. When I got there, I saw some people sitting down on the bench not too far from the bridge with their backs turned to me.

I thought this was weird, since I never see anyone around the bridge. I didn’t want anyone hearing/seeing me and try to come to my rescue, so I waited an hour. When I got back, they were still there. I moved on and forgot about jumping off. Now, a couple of months later, I went for a walk. When I reached the bridge, I saw that the people were still there. They were still the same, backs turned to me with brightly colored coats. I took out my ear buds and called out to them. They didn’t move. I got a little closer and, when I got close enough, I realized that they cardboard people.

Whoever put those there, I want to thank you for saving my life, you weird ass mother fucker.

Hey buddy,

Da haben wir also jetzt weiße, privilegierte Netzpolitik-Typen, einige von denen bezeichnen sich selbst als links, und die kriegen Dinge nicht mit. Die verpassen Hintergründe. Aber für deren Leser macht das nichts. Dann schreibt es halt jemand von außen und Netzpolitik.org hat dann nicht mal Zeit/Lust/Ressourcen zu checken, ob das so stimmt. Und deren Leser? Merken es nicht. 16 Sorten awesome. Und mit awesome meine ich natürlich wieder scheiße.

Diese Netzpolitik-Lautsprecher sind Liberale (bestenfalls), die nicht gut finden, dass wir jetzt alle komplett überwacht werden, denen das aber wahrscheinlich ziemlich egal wäre, wenn sie nicht selbst betroffen wären. Siehe die Sexworker*innen. Deren spezielles Überwachungsproblem interessiert Netzpolitik-Dudes nicht. Denen sind viele Dinge, von denen sie nicht selbst betroffen sind, oder für die sie nicht gefeiert werden, offensichtlich egal.

Unter inklusiver und intersektionaler Netzpolitik verstehe ich was anderes.

My Netzpolitik will be intersectional or it will be bullshit |
