C'est quand même un long texte pour moi qui est habitué à juste écrire ~3 paragraphes. Ça m'a pris beaucoup de temps. J'aimerais savoir ce que vous en pensez.

Quand tu comprends qu'on est juste une gang de singes qui se pensent bons, debout à la surface d'une petite roche qui file à 30000 km/h dans le vide, y'a pu grand chose qui te dérange dans la vie.

There's 500 millions iPads on the planet, half of them sold before 2015, 22 different models. That's a lot of computers that need/will need repurposing at some point. Given the explosion in production in this kind of electronics this past decade, it might be interesting to target this kind of system :) Also includes old android tablets and phones!

À discuter: Quel est le plus beau compliment que tu as fait à quelqu'un?

As we watch events in Texas unfold, bear in mind that Texas "seceded" from the US national electrical grid in order to avoid federal regulation. They privatized their grid into the hands of a few wealthy people. As a result there are only two limited interconnects making it impossible for surrounding states to share power to keep Texas afloat in terms of electric power.

All this suffering in Texas should not be happening. The grid in Texas is intact, they just don't have generation capacity. If Texas had remained part of the US grid, power from as far away as California, Washington, West Virginia, Tennessee, Florida, could be routed to Texas. Looking at the real-time data here, the US grid is running at more than 200 GW below capacity. There's enough power to hold up two states of Texas even if Texas had no generation at all. But we can't send them power.

Keep this in mind when rich people trick the public and politicians about privatization, and spout garbage like "going it alone, in keeping with the pioneering spirit of the USA". No. Organized cooperation is power. Going it alone is weakness.

Don't believe in cooperation? Study how the Roman army was organized. It was all about very tightly organized cooperation, starting with an individual soldier and those to his immediate left and right. This is how 8,000 Romans could take on 80,000 and methodically slaughter the 80,000 with zero losses.

Ok faque on s'entend pour dire que tout ces bitcoins et crypto currencies sont en train de ruiner nos efforts d'économiser l'énergie et ont un impact négatif sur les régions touchées. Ok.

Alors on fait quoi maintenant? Taxer? Rendre ça illégal? Nationaliser?

Quoi? Facebook a priviliégié les posts des conservateurs de droite?! Impossible! Je ne l'aurais jamais cru!

Je suis rendu meilleur à reconnaitre mes patterns. C'est quoi ce feeling bizarre où je suis vaguement triste et craintif et mes pensées tournent en rond? Oh oui! C'est que je suis fatigué!! Allez! Bonne nuit!

(et bravo moi d'avoir levelup mon skill de self-care!)

Des maudits bons arguments!

Une entreprise est essentiellement une dictature. C'est le gars en haut qui a la décision finale, s'il est pas d'accord. Même si le dictateur est gentil pour l'instant, ça veut pas dire qu'il va l'être quand la compagnie va commencer à aller mal. Ou qu'il est gentil égal avec tous les employés.

"I have some news," he announced as casually as possible, "That you may find alarming."

I lowered the scroll I'd been scrutinizing.

"Er..." he fidgeted a bit and coughed, "There's a dragon parked in the stables."

I raised an eyebrow.

"And a princess with an ultimatum."

I blinked.

"Teach her magic or her dragon eats your favorite horse."

"Did you tell her she could just pay the tuition," I sighed.

"Oh! I'll do that right away, ma'am!"

The city awoke to a strange kind of vandalism - greenery had sprouted everywhere. Vines coiled around lamp posts, flowers bloomed from every crack in the pavement and trees towered, creating canopies that dappled the sunlight, their substantial roots creating shelters, seats and sleeping nooks.

The council decided it was too expensive to deal with and simply urged citizens to adapt to this new environment, and many did so with gusto.

Au début de l'automne, un écureuil m'a bouffé et fait perdre la moitié de mes feuilles. (En plus il n'a rien mangé vraiment, le petit criss. Je ne goûtait pas assez bon pour lui!)
Cette branche là a été laissée pour morte, avec aucune feuilles. Mais depuis 2 jours, j'ai un petit bourgeon qui commence à grandir. L'espoir renaît!!

Des fois la vie c'est de la marde pendant longtemps avant que les belles choses reviennent.
