Oh my ahura mazda, people like my joke and I have accidentally ten times as much followers as before, and stars enough to fabricate a moderately sized nebula.
Now how to tell them that I am boring and not funny? 🙃

some people think they *punish* me by banning me for disagreeing with them. 🤦‍♂️

In #Budapest there are more than 30000 hand-picked small pebbles laying at the Margit-island. All those pebbles contain a number and an age, some a first name or nickname, some just "mom". Every pebble is for one person who died in #COVID in #Hungary. People started to put pebbles there last year, and soon thousands and thousands of new pebbles appeared, one by one, bordering the running strip around the little island.

In august 2021 the pebbles were so many that they were in danger from the large masses of people of the popular island, so the government of Budapest city and the people originally organised the memorial and their countless helpers have moved all the stones, a handful a time, into an inner park of the island, into a multiple spiralling line.

If you happen to be around, nice to know what these pebbles are. Lots and lots of stones.

A well-written #conservative / #right leanig article about how #Hungary's Victor #Orban is not "valuing conservative values", using the apropos of Tucker Carlson (Fox News "paleoconservative" commentator) coming to Hungary and having a happy meeting and country tour in a government-controlled bubble.

It is a rarely-found help for English-speaking conservatives believing Orban is their comerade.

Just listened to Runaway Train from Soul Asylum and got curious about the names listed (of lost children). My random pick was "Emily Tamara Pois, missing since 1992".
Found her in 2016, arrested shoplifting $1232 and possessing heroin. And motor vehicle theft the year before. Then possessing drugs before that.
I stopped looking for others. *sigh*

Scott Duncan on Twitter: "I can't believe I am writing this.

Canada 🇨🇦 has obliterated its national all-time heat record *for the second day in a row*.

Before yesterday, greater than 45°C had never been recorded. As far as climatology is concerned, this is deeply shocking."

Lytton, Canada, observed 47.9°C or 118°F.

This is the most spectacular shooting in one's foot for a long, long time.
