Man survives bow-and-arrow attack thanks to his mobile phone


The resident held up his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man who then engaged the bow and was ready to fire.

He was taken to Nimbin Police Station where he was charged with armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

This whole situation sounds to me like the irresponsible behaviour that is often discovered with nosy tourists who treat the residents (and often the Natives) like exhibted sights that can be photographed without any problems. Oh well, at least he is now without his phone. I mean, why would you take a photo of someone without asking him for permission to do so?

Why There Is One Lone Road In The US That Uses The Metric System - And Why It Will Eventually Change Back to the Imperial System


Quite a humorous video attempting to explain why the US is one of only three countries in the world that still sticks to the old colonial imperial system. One reason was that the US's standard 1kg got lost in transit when it was stolen by pirates back in the day (true story).

I have questions about #federation and #fediverse. I get that someone from a different pod can see my content. Does this mean that I will show up in the feeds of people using #Friendica and are in the #fediverse? Does it just mean I can communicate with people outside of #diaspora? Does it give priority to some content over others or does it treat all pods/social networks equally?
