Friend posted this two year old kids song, and I kind of had to repost it here. It's highly addictive as tunes go (seriously listen it through!), it has dancing penguins.... whats not to like?

"Officer, help I've been robbed!"
"We'll catch the blaggard, what did he steal?"
"... my heart..."

God I hate reddit sometimes. It's like someone said "ok we need a place to put all the really self-loathing toxic people" but then forgot to put up a warning sign on the door.

Ok so in spring I will have to create a crash course in how to use GIMP (or Glimpse depending on how ready that is for usage at that time).
Basically four lessons for randos at the public library - with practical printable results as mini projects for each lesson.

My idea is also making videos one for each lesson that they get before hand to show what we're gonna do to reserve the lesson time for questions and training.

Fiddling with videos before hand is kinda fun.

Ok I know there was some criticism of /e/ for phones but the name being what it is I can't search for it. Anyone know any? May wanna install it for my main phone as the Lineage ROM is also a community ROM

The one single effective method is to have close friends and especially friends of your own gender, bromances.

I have a handful of very-very-close-friends. Basically "friends who's genitalia I've seen in a very nonsexual manner" (of both sexes). A sort of siblinghood where you can hug, touch, and share secrets and sadnesses outside of the logic of dual genders and patriarchy. Where my male friends can be sensitive if they want.

We need more of this. Not less.

In defence of bro'ship. 

So being in my 40's I can read statistics. A huge number of men my age and older are incredibly lonely. They have accepted a patriarchal model of masculinity where friends are removed and distanced when you have a spouse or a family. Leaving social connections to your spouse if your straight means when the kids grow up or divorce happens - you are now isolated alone. Loneliness being the core driver for suicide among middle age men.

Can we just agree that Willie Nelson is basically impossible to dislike?

errr for non-nordics, I mean you can do it too - I just think there should be more Libre/Opensource Nordic cooperation and more.

Hey ! So I started to translate the intro page for Regolith (not a user personally but like the project) into Swedish.

Are there any Norwegians, Danes, Finns, Sapmi-speakers or Icelandics in here who wanna translate the page into their languages? Just to help a small project out?

The text is short, and easy to translate.

Stupid fact:
The proverb "I hear, I see, I learn" is "Audio, Video, Disco" in Latin.

If Dagon is wild each player takes turn to move it across the board one step each turn.

If a boat is caught by Dagon they lose half of all fished cards from all days rounded down.

When you fish you show the other player what card you got.

To summon a servant of Dagon - a player pick that action and the cards are removed, one replaced with a Dagon card, and then reshuffled with that one hidden Dagon card in it.
If you fish and get "Dagon" - then you will have the biggest fish card you've fished taken from you OR you pay the smallest fish card you've fished and Dagon is not appeased and now moves freely across the board.

Boats move in all directions (straight or diagonal), Dagon moves only straight.

Each day begins by randomly drawing 16 cards, showing them to the player, shuffling and then placing them on the grid (perhaps some mechanic to move fish to certain spots?).
Each day ends when there are no more fish cards, or when one player reach home harbour (plus one round for the other player).
Each round begins with each player placing, face down one of the four action cards and then showing it.
