Hammer House of Podcast
I have listened to the episode 0, the introductory ep, and am genuinely excited about this. To the extent that I am sad that there is going to be Patreon exclusive content, having JUST THIS WEEK junked my Patreon account and found other ways of funding the other creators I was Patreonning. I really want that bonus content, but not enough to reopen my Patreon account...

Canal not as liquid as usual. There was a dead duck frozen in the ice at one point, but I thought it would be disrespecting his memory to photograph him (definitely a him: shiny-headed mallard). Alisdair did say "there's good eating on one of them", but I'm not desperate enough to risk that kind of freeganism... yet.

If you're likely to go into NHS Mental Health inpatient care, try to be male, white & over 20
As my friend on Mastodon put it: "The correlation seems to be that the less likely you are to be able to fight back effectively, whether physically or legally, the more likely you are, and the more brutally, to be physically restrained."

My theory: Patreon doesn't want to be a money services business
There might be a legal/regulatory reason why Patreon are behaving the way they are. Still doesn't excuse them calling rich people signal and less rich people noise, though.

ABA: Abusive Bullying of Autistics

A Personal Note on Functioning Labels | Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!
My autism manifests in slightly different ways to Andrew's, so my total time spent in the company of other people is higher. However, this just means (as far as I can tell) that I need to explicitly factor recovery time from spending time with other people into my schedule more than Andrew does - I love my friends, and I love seeing them, but it does take a toll. Yes, every time.

The difference between men and women in spatial skills can be erased with a quick course of study
"What is clear is that cultural biases have an effect. Consciously or unconsciously, girls are nudged away from activities that would help them develop spatial skills almost as soon as they’re born. As they grow, parents respond to their kids’ interests, quickly compounding what may start out as very slight biases." - similarly to boys being nudged away from caring roles.

Things Tim Farron doesn’t understand: Atheism
