Image being a doctor.
Imagine being a medic.
Imagine being a photographer.
Imagine being a parent.
Imagine being a child.
And imagine your home got bombed, after you were told to move there to "be safe". Your child gets hurt, and you end up in a hospital that doesn't have any beds, any equipment, any pain killers, not even disinfectant.
You have to hold your child screaming while the doctors performing an operation on her, the pain is so overwhelming that you have to pin down the child with all your weight.
Just close your eyes and put yourself in their position.
As a father, I can't imagine such horror. Glad I never did.
Now imagine doctors, medics and photographers having to witness and perform these operations over and over again.
And we, the people with high morals, watching it happen. It's not like the words of witnesses that Israel and their whole multi billion dollar paid propagandists repeatedly calling them for "Pollywood", to make you have doubt about what you just watched and simply move on and ignore it.
There is absolutely no need to prevent painkillers getting into Gaza.
There is absolutely no need for the world to ignore the suffering of innocent children.
And there is no way those doctors, medics and photographers to stop doing what they possibly can to help the victims of Israeli bombings.
But we don't care.
We just move on with our lives not even thinking about those little ones who later die of the shock because their tiny hearts can't handle the unimaginable stress during the bombings and the horror of ab operation.
And by then, she become a number. One of 13400+ that the civilized world has chosen to ignore.
I am not sharing the video, I simply can't. Even the image is from another victim because I'm writing this with tearsein my eyes. I hate the world we live in, the politics, the religion, the money and anything that is justifying the ongoing slaughter of the innocent little angles who had the who life ahead them.
I simply can't. But most people do.
In Japanese folklore there is a tale about a shapeshifting kitsune known to trick people and leave them with their heads shaved. Two bold young men tried to outwit the mischievous fox but met the same fate. You can read the whole tale on my website at the link below.

#WestBank (occupied) / Blinken says Israel's new settlements in West Bank "inconsistent" with international law
[…] Speaking at a news conference during a trip to Buenos Aires, #Blinken said the United States was disappointed in Israel's announcement of plans for building new housing in the occupied West Bank, saying they were counterproductive to reaching an enduring peace.
[…] "They're also inconsistent with international law. Our administration maintains a firm opposition to settlement expansion, and in our judgment this only weakens, doesn't strengthen Israel's security," Blinken said.

And that's just what they'll do.
Weekly progress update on the Warmaster Titan! The legs are fully assembled and posed. This is a BIG model. I'm fairly sure the sizing is within an acceptable margin of error based off the height chart GW put out. Especially given that the Knight has a waist extender giving it a bit more height.

Slept ok last night but am sooo tired today !
Did my chores .
I was hit by multiple triggers this morning, all of them minor but so many of them !
Frustration levels hit a peak , which is never good.
ESO helped lower the levels & cider & pizza are currently helping too.
My brain is struggling to string words together tonight . I wonder what’s going on.
Thank you to all those who are helping me on this journey, in a myriad different ways. I am thankful to each & every one of you! 🫂 🐿️🖖

Wanted: Scientific Errors.
"Scientific-misconduct accusations are leading to retractions [...] But there’s no telling how widespread errors are in research: As it is, they’re largely brought to light by unpaid volunteers.
A program launching this month is hoping to shake up that incentive structure [...It] will pay reviewers to root out mistakes in influential papers,"
I spend most of my life far too exhausted to care, or even notice, but i've been sleeping long enough to actually dream for a week+ and my emotional resiliency is through the roof. Unfortunately...
I can't string two thoughts together. I don't have any caffeine, and probably won't until i'm allowed to use money again. Next friday, hopefully.
Any suggestions on how to survive until then? Lay in bed and doomscroll?
Over 2/3 of Jewish Israelis oppose humanitarian aid to Palestinians starving in Gaza
A new Israeli Democracy Institute survey shows that 68% of Jewish Israelis oppose “the transfer of humanitarian aid to Gaza residents.”
Where do you go for zoomable world geographic and political maps? Maps for visually answering questions like "Does Slovenia have an Adriatic port?" (Koper is the largest), or "What Guyanan cities are near the area that Venezuela claims?" (Georgetown)
I used to use google maps for that, but lately their political and geographic labels have been getting harder to see. OSM is better but still prioritizes navigation over boundaries. Wikipedia has the info, but often not visually.
