Canadians' trips to liquor stores, pharmacies tracked via phones during pandemic
I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
I made a little Python app to draw pride flags of your choice.
So far there's gay, bi, lesbian, trans, enby, pan and ace.
Still needs some bugs worked out, but it's a fun little program.
As a kid I always thought: "Ahh, things will be alright. Grown ups are just over reacting about the world and we have things figured out!"
But growing up you realise how untrue that actually is. It's a mess! The differences on this planet are just enormous and not in a "good way". We are fighting about the most silly things, inventing the most useless stuff and ruing our home in the process. Everyday something new is released and it feels like every single hooman must have every last of it all.
And the biggest frustration for me is that it feels like the people who "rule the world" are all old.. There are no younger people who even have a say in things, I know our gen is the cleanup crew and that's okay but stop making the mess bigger and bigger.
I feel younger people are much more flexible and global focussed, please give us a chance at least..
This is just what I think and feel and I'm prob wrong. At least I hope so

I didn't know you had a Mastodon account, you should mention it more in your videos! It beats the bird site.
#Truth is important, but not as much as how we get to that truth. People used to believe, based on religions, that the sun rotates around the earth, until it was - despite fierce objection - disproven with science.
To dispel lies and promote truth, education is key. We must learn - and teach - that truth does not come from some popularity contest or word of the mouth, but from objective inquiries, observations, and analysis.
