FYI: I'm sure that am a choleric person.

This means that, even I'm trying to keep these tendencies of mine at bay, I will sometimes make a fool of myself by speaking without thinking first and going on rants about some things.

In case you see me in such a state, I will be most grateful if you remind me that it is time to stop posting and that I should think if I shouldn't perhaps be burning in shame due to saying some stupid things I could have not said if only I thought before rambling.

The German Corona Warn App went live today. F-Droid cannot distribute the app for multiple reasons:

1) The core bluetooth contact tracing functionality is only implemented in Google play services and requires proprietary client libs to be included in the app.
2) The google api mentioned above is only available for use by apps which are whitelisted by google and distributed through the play store.

Fellow white people, please listen to this, a lot of the people around me have yet to understand it:

"You can’t renounce your class position. Privilege is not an accusation or damnation, it’s simply an observation about your class position. White liberals understand the concept of privilege as if it is an original sin and that is pathological"

A friend sent me this the other day. Enjoyed the mildly concerning comparison.

I enjoy the idea that other alien civilisations made a facebook analog and successfully killed each other out over it.
