Why go on strike to fight climate change 1/n Show more
From September 20th until the 27th, the working class of the world has been called to engage in protest and general strike against the kyriarchal systems of oppression which are causing the global collapse of our ecosystem.

It was "a government license in the Age of Sail that authorized a private person, known as a privateer or corsair, to attack and capture vessels of a nation at war with the issuer" (Wikipedia). While privateering was legal and piracy was not, in reality the line between a pirate and a privateer was thin at best.
I'm so proud when someone suggests a bug ID and the OP checks it out and says "Thanks but I don't think that's it, your page says it's only found in $COUNTRY but I'm in $DISTANT_COUNTRY."
Like they say, "if you hear hoofbeats, don't look for zebras. Unless you're currently in the Serengeti, in which case they're probably zebras." And "Location, location, location!"
Yes, accidental transplants, invasive species, escaped pets, etc. do happen, but a local species is still more likely! 🐘
Apropos of nothing, I still think this would be a good song, see thread for details https://twitter.com/neville_park/status/960712702644629510
If you work at a big company, this will probably tell you how much your CEO makes and compare it to the median of the company. I was pretty shocked my own self.
