a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.

Just amazing to think of all the little worker bees/ants whose constant agitation, like that of the author of this article, has given us $15 minimum wages and tons of other labor victories.

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

I literally *just* got that pun

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised

juliareda.eu/2019/02/eu-copyri

Please reshare widely and **take action**. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.

This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.

If I had one last wish from a genie, I'd be petty and ask them to bring back Tandi Iman Dupree so Tandi could drop from the ceiling onto this atrocious Melania-haired reporter's head, then dance-fight her back to the hole she crawled out of:

OffGaurdian: “I understand the need to act in Venezuela. The country has seen weeks of violent protests, thr embattled President has less than 17% approval rating and government forced have been gassing and maiming civilians in the streets.
Oh sorry, that’s not Venevuela, that’s France.”

(Kudos to the ‘violent protests’, you’re doing amazing)
