It's International Men's Day!
Hello, fellow men!!
Things that are good about teh menz:
* Trans men
* Showing emotional vulnerability
* When we stand up for others with less gender privilege
* Being good role models for boys
Things that we need to work on:
* Toxic masculinity
All toughness all the time isn't sustainable!
Heh. The label on my toothpaste says "wirkt natürlich".
There's two ways to read that:
1. read "natürlich" an an adverb - now the phrase means "works naturally" (i.e. without additives, I guess?)
2. "wirkt" can also mean "appears/seems", so another valid translation is "appears natural". Probably not what they're going for, but certainly funnier.

Now for the bad stuff:
There seems to be an upper limit for scroll speed on Sailfish. Great for performance (you can predict that it will take the user at least this many ms to reach off-screen content, no need to render it any earlier), not so good for responsibility.
I don't like the gestures. Intellectually, I get how "back to home screen" is the same thing as "back within an app", only more so.
But it's too easy to do one of those things when you mean to do the other.

And actually, another thing that's pretty cool about it is that, since dragging the screen down reveals options that are enabled when you release the drag (harder to describe than it is to do), you can't refresh a feed or a website by simply dragging down (i.e. by just repeating you scrolling motion).
Refreshing a feed, getting new content, is a conscious act (although whether by confidence or by design, I can't tell)
I like robots, obsolete technology, and terrible puns.
