Bei der Ablösung sieht meine "neue" Kollegin (sie kam vor ein paar Jahren aus dem Morgenland nach Deutschland), dass ich mit dem Fahrrad da bin. Sie machte große Augen und fragte völlig fassungslos, ob ich bewusst auch im Regen mit dem Fahrrad fahren würde. In ihrer Heimat würde Menschen, die bei Regen oder kalter Witterung Rad fahren, unterstellt, sie seien von Dämonen besessen.

Ich habe ihr geantwortet, dass so ein Aberglaube hier auch noch weit verbreitet ist.

As usual we have a word in German that perfectly describes what we witnessed tonight.

It's called "Fremdschämen" and it's the vicarious embarrassment you get when you see something so deeply mortifying, you feel embarrassed just watching it.

In case you do not understand German or Russian, the cyclist is on the 27th day of his tour. The Russian truck driver invites him for a cup of tea.

Das Wort zum Wochenende: "Es ist ein Trugschluss anzunehmen, Medienkompetenz käme mit der bloßen Verwendung eines Gerätes einher."

Mal drüber nachdenken. ;-)

Parents riding bicycles with their babies sitting behind them in the seat ... why would you run a red light at a large intersection?!

Let Darwin do his job or speak out loudly?

Facebook will also aus der EU verschwinden? Toll. Nehmt bitte WA und Instagramm und was weiß ich gleich mit <3

Illegal parking in the bike lane.
Me stopping next to the car. "Hello there, do you need help?"
Meanwhile blocking cars behind me.
Car driver in the bike lane: "No, thanks, I am waiting for me daughter."
Me: "Here? What about the other children?"

I mean, what is wrong with these people? I was waiting in line, next to the sweets section. He went straight to the sweets next to me. I stepped aside as far as possible. Then he took the position in line right behind me. I took a step forward. He then did the same, standing right behind me.

Me: "Could you keep a proper distance, please?"
Him (not moving a bit): "Whatever you mean"
Me: "No, not what I 'mean'. You are actually harassing people."
Him (sighing): "..."

😡: "This is a question of decency and politeness!"

One of the things that I said to the 60 y/o man who did not keep proper physical distance in the supermarkt cash-out line.

Auf den Punkt formuliert. !

„Ja, Rücksicht. Also das, was Radfahrer immer tun sollen, wenn ein Autofahrer in der Nähe ist. Weil, Radfahrer haben ja keine Knautschzone. Und sind selbst schuld. Die blockieren nur den Verkehr, also den richtigen! Und wer Rad fährt, hat ja Zeit. Das macht man ja nur in der Freizeit.“

🚙: "If cyclists were following the rules, fewer of them would be involved in traffic accidents."

Also 🚙: "Cyclists must not use the road, but the sidewalk/pavement!"

No 🚙 ever: "If pedestrians were following the rules, fewer of them would be involved in accidents with cyclists on the sidewalk/pavement."

“Y2038K is an urgent issue and we need to solve it! First, we need to build a decentralized, community-based system free of corporate influence, built on open standards to measure time, then we need to ensure the equal distribution of stratum-1 atomic clocks across humanity. Next, we should define time as something that only passes when a specific human is feeling happy. Then we need to federate the non-linear timelines and filter out the trolls....”

I’m going to start a Y2038K denialist group.

“32bit numbers run out? That’s ridiculous”.
