Is there such thing as plant cruelty?
Because if this is the case, I'd have to stop my weird experiments.

I did this to get a fancy shaped stem.

Remember the ducks my parents got back in July?

The brats grew up!

Have a nice day y'all.

fediblock-ish / sketchy signup attempt 

There was a sketchy pending account on R.L. Best time for...

Red flag detection fun !

:red_flag: username composed of letters (like first name) + random numbers is suspicious. Birdsite's astroturfing bot accounts have been doing that forever.

:red_flag: While not liking cops is very much valid, there are better ways to introduce yourself. I'd be very sorry, if this is the only thing that describes who you are.

:red_flag: I couldn't find any info on this (cryptofash sounding) domain but that it's been bought on Which is a registrar where you can get domain names using cryptocurrencies as a payment method.

Up your game trolls.
(any additional info about domain very welcome)

Annonce d'Imane (1/2) 

"Merci à tous pour votre soutien.
Vos bonnes vibes. Vos prières et pour votre amour. J'ai l'impression d'être dans une bulle de bienveillance qui me protège de tout ça. C'est vraiment la seule chose que je veux retenir. Même si c'est pas facile. Que c'est injuste et que ça me semble interminable. Je sais que nous allons nous en sortir.
Je lis chacun de vos messages et ils me touchent énormément. Ils sont nécessaires car votre amour et votre gratitude éclipsent leur haine et me conforte énormément.
Je ne porterai pas plainte car même si je le peux et qu'ilsle méritent. Je suis une étudiante en alternance qui essaie d'aider quotidiennement 100K d'étudiants. En construisant aussi son propre avenir. Je n'ai pas de temps et d'énergie à accorder à ces personnes cruelles. Je suis trop occupée à réussir ma vie et à aimer mes proches et mes échelons 7. Je veux juste faire ma vie tranquillement comme ça a toujours été le cas.
Je me suis retrouvée chez moi seule face a cette haine. À des kilomètres de ma famille. Après une longue semaine d'école. J'aurai pu faire le pire.
Ces gens n'ont aucune humanité. Mais j'ai bon dos et j'ai un mental d'acier, je ne vacille et je ne tremble."

This person is well known for trying to get an account on any possible instance in order to spew racist crap all over the place.

Bots are not paid well enough to even care about pretending to be legit users.

All the coworkers are off this week, let's use the workplace devices to digitize old family footage because why not?

Found the old SheevaPlug at my parents' home.
I used to use it as a VPN gateway for when they needed remote tech assistance. Sitting in their laundry room for almost a decade without a hitch.

Plug computers/SBC were kind of a nerdy niche before Raspberry Pi got introduced.

My parents got ducklings a couple of days ago.

These lil' creatures are so cute :blobcataww:

Hey all, since it's the 4th of July, I felt like making an emoji of David Hammons' African-American Flag.

My heart misses you like anti-white racism misses credibility.

"I think what you're trying to ask is why am I so insistent on giving out to them that blackness, that black power, that black pushing them to identify with black culture. I think that's what you're asking. I have no choice over it in the first place. To me where are the most beautiful creatures in the whole world --black people. And I mean that in every sense. Outside and inside. To me I think we have a culture that is surpassed by no other civilization, but we don't know anything about it. So again I think I said this before in some other interview. My job is to somehow make them curious enough and to persuade them by hook or crook to get more aware of themselves and where they came from and what they are into and what is already there and to bring it out. This is what compels me to compel them, and I will do it by whatever means necessary."

[FR] J'ai trouvé le détournement de Pennybags (AKA Mr. Monopoly) sur reddit.
Ça pourrait faire un bon autocollant mais la flemme. Faites-en ce que vous voulez.

[EN] Found Pennybags' drawing on reddit.
I don't even like hanging there but sometimes there are funny-ish stuff to fetch.

I barely worked today as I was mostly toying with the flatbed scanner at the office.

I scanned a couple of my SO's collages I can't resist to share since I love how they look.

She used to have a blog where she uploaded her artwork a long time ago but blogger (the provider) wiped everything out after an upgrade to a new version of something...
I am considering helping her setting up a new one.
