Let's see, what should I put in an #introduction?
I'm in my thirties, live in #Cologne, #Germany, and like #birds and #nature and #fantasy #writing and #art. I run an occasional #RPG round, the system is #TDE (English version of the German #DSA)
I'm a #programmer, but I don't talk about tech here much and definitely don't prosetylize about OS or programming language choice.
Stuff I mention here includes #FlightRising and #bulletjournal.
I'm on the #asexual spectrum. Pronoun she or they.
picrews are cool but did you know that for only $30 you can get a unique custom pixel art portrait made by me?
bonus: i'm not ace-exclusive
Aviation and Carbon
I work in Aviation. My professor talked about a conference in France he went to recently, with some takeaways:
-Airplane engines have an increased efficiency of 80% since the 1960s. That is HUGE!
- The Carbon Cost per passenger by distance is 2-3 times lower in commercial jets than individual cars. Smaller local flights are 1.5-2 times lower.
- Rail is still the most efficient and least carbon, even with idle time.
- Electric planes are unviable due to battery weight.
hey all. i'm thinking about working on an article about being a hacker while trans. i'm thinking about things like acceptance in spaces, old projects that deadname us, stigmas, visibility or *wanting* not to be visible.
my ideas are still a little scatterbrained but i want to see what i could write into a concise article about this and i want your ideas and input. i don't want my voice to be the only one in it.
Und dann war da noch der fleißige 'Ich will Dein Auto kaufen'-Kärtchen-Stecker, der pflichtbewusst auch die Karte an den Polizeiwagen gesteckt hat, der gerade vor meinem Haus parkt. #mademyday
So for #worldbuildingwednesday let me talk to you about saprophytic plants that infect your sinuses, and stoats that can pull the heat out of your body from five feet away while you're asleep, and why there are so damn many wolves in the #Venleitche game world, and you can find out more at https://wanderingbeekeeper.itch.io/venleitche or you can just ask me right here!
The Monitor Lizards and Snakes are probably my fave of the reptiles unless you count dinosaurids in which case the Terror Birds, or the Corvids.
Mosasaur, Monitors, and Snakes are fairly closely related, and the monitor lizards are the few lizards other than the stem-snakes (the begining of the snake evolutionary lineage) that speced into venom, my fave monitor lizard is the extinct Megalania which was larger than the Komodo Dragon and was a megapredator in Australia until it became extinct not long after humans got here.

Help me identify this sci-fi novel!
- I read it as a paperback in the late 90s. It was on the new arrivals shelf at my local library
- Male author, I'm pretty sure. I dunno if it's someone notable or not.
- Main premise involves a human who studies other planets' cultures & uses some future tech that allows him to change his body so it's just like the ones of the alien culture.
- He does that repeatedly. There might be risks from this?
- In the end, rather than going to back to his human form, he decides to make his body a fusion of parts from the various cultures.
- Maybe he kinda takes a hoop-like shape and rolls away??
I've been trying to figure this out for yearsssss!
Today, I want men to think about how they comfort each other when they learn that one of their bredrens is going through something. Often, what some men in our lives truly need is another man to talk things through with.
