Has anybody have a clue?

I the notifications area of my phone, this little eye symbol (screenshot attached) appeared some time ago, and I have no idea of its meaning.

Big brother is watching me?

@mina usually it's for Night Light enabled (yellow tint on display instead of blue/white)

@mina i think the other reply regarding visual feedback might be the reason.

@kaia time is money for them and luxury these folks don't have...

I on the other hand arrive at a destination always early because I am effing rich and happy to saunter to and fro

Do you remember Game of Thrones?

The TV-series with truly cool dragons many of us first loved and then hated with equal passion, when the scripts turned into total crap?!

A late highlight of the series was, IMO, the fight between Brienne and the Hound (unlike Arya vs. Brienne, which was complete shite). This was epic.

@badastro huge admiration and thank you to all the scientists, engineers, researchers and astronauts who've worked on Hubble throughout its life...

And a shout-out to one camera programmer in particular :)

Swedish astronomer, physicist, and mathematician Anders Celsius died in 1744.

In 1742, Celsius introduced the temperature scale that bears his name. His original scale was actually the reverse of what we use today: it set the boiling point of water at 0 degrees & the freezing point at 100 degrees. However, shortly after his death, the scale was reversed by Carl Linnaeus, resulting in the 0 degrees for freezing & 100 degrees for boiling that we are familiar with.

@gutenberg_org one of my favourite ๐ŸŒก๏ธ trivia

@gutenberg_org โ„ƒ not only stands for Celsius, or (Jeane Pierre) Christin or Carl (Linnaeus) or even the centigrade scale but for the Community of scientists whose work over the centuries made a scale so robust we take it for granted

I wanted to be an astronaut, but my career councillor told me that the skyโ€™s the limit.

@dgar Astronauts lose bone density due to weightlessness, one can achieve quite similar results by having a sedentary lifestyle.

And you probably smoke too, right? And that'll get the same amount of ionising radiation. 160,000 microsieverts /yr

In the vast space of emptiness, our dreams are much closer than we realise.

I can justify buying a Milguass (if I had the means)

As a motorsport fan most would think I'd go for a Daytona or as a space enthusiast maybe go for the offerings from ...

But, I am at my core a man of science and Milguass is the one I am attracted to.

it sucks a lot that Amazon is no longer showing you the exact product when you search for it, but sponsored articles first :02sad:

mountdiscovery,
@mountdiscovery@twit.social avatar

@kaia I've stopped buying things online for the same reason.

Apart from electronics from popular brands on huge discounts, I've stopped shopping on the Everything Store or any other similar web store.

I am fortunate to live in a big city and have access to physical stores where the prices are more or less the same and I don't have to worry about boxes and tracking shipments. And extremely environmentally unfriendly return shipping.

@grb090423 I need to remind myself often it was called the Cassini-Huygens Mission!!

Cassini taking all the shine and recognition with spectacular images of Saturn and its moons... (my fav is the plumes of Enceledus).

The uncomming moon mission like the Europa Clipper scouting the surface is exciting but to see one land on another world makes it so more special!
