#Urban I've suspected this for years — #rural folks are generally more conservative politically too, in my experience.
Crime and punishment: Rural people are more punitive than city-dwellers #Urban
 
The math looks good. Five to twenty times the #trigger pullers as our opposition. #Rural verses #urban. #Asymmetric #warfare verses conventional forces ill equipped with #Military #Industrial Complex Whiz Bang Fancy Garbage powered by Intelligence Asset #Microsoft Blue Screen Of Death software, manned by Grrl Power Brigades. Even fat hump couch surfing ninja warriors can most likely defeat a bunch of scrawny women, right? Even old geezers can shuffle over to unguarded infrastructure to damage it with fire or blunt instruments.

Die Oper in der Essener Innenstadt, das Grillo-Theater, ist eine Stiftung des Essener Bürgers Friedrich Grillo (1825-1888). Nach zweijähriger Bauzeit wurde es 1892 als erstes Stadttheater im Ruhrgebiet eröffnet. Nach der Zerstörung im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde sie in einfacher Form wieder aufgebaut und 1950 mit einer Aufführung von Richard Wagners Oper "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" wiedereröffnet. —————————— #ruhrpottroamers --------------------- 📷 Fotograf: @schichtmeister 🌍 Location: Essen, Germany . . . . . #StadtEssen #Ruhrpott #DeinNRW #...

THE SHOES SHOP


Shoes have a purpose: we wear them to walk. And walking is to be in movement, to be alive. There is always a Path to walk, and it is not always a physical one. Shoes are just a symbol to remind us that we need to get on the Path of living with the right tools. We need good shoes, we need to be prepared.
In life we need to choose wisely, which is not easy. We need to use our experience, to learn from our errors, to be able to use discernment, if not wisdom. This demands a certain amount of preparation, and I believe the best preparation one could achieve for his travel in life is to “know oneself”. It is the purpose of Philosophy to provide this knowledge, but still... one would need to choose wisely what kind of philosophy and find the one which suits him well.
Like in the Shoes shop, there are many shoes to choose from but maybe just one fits our feet. So... patience and perseverance. With... Show more...

Went on a #walk to Ravensbourne, and I was too late to #capture this #scene.

The sun had dipped below the horizion and the colors had begun to #dim... ='(

I'll have to revisit this area, maybe multiple times... If it's good enough, I might put it [on sale]

Anything that encourages interest in cycling is a good thing, more or less, so I'm happy to support the tendency towards 'upright' riding -- even if it isn't yet close to the comfort offered by recumbents, which are still somehow beyond the pale. But when you get to talking about riding in the city, as in traffic, lower bars just mean more stability and control... I run the bars low on all my bikes. Nothing to prove; just a bit more of an edge against the cars. But I was a messenger a few too many years, so my circuits might be a bit fried...

"A political poster from the period shows a muscular red fist swiping a bottle of champagne from an ice bucket, while horrified bourgeois in tuxedos and gowns back off. Taxing rich people’s spending on champagne, race horses, and servants redirected money into bricks, tile, and gardens for the working class. And the Social Democrats built housing in every neighborhood: no one should be able to tell a person’s status from their postal code."

this is real: „I explained the study to my university acquaintance. A heterosexual man and woman enter the lab through separate doors. They sit face to face and answer a series of increasingly personal questions. Then they stare silently into each other’s eyes for four minutes. The most tantalizing detail: Six months later, two participants were married. They invited the entire lab to the ceremony.

These #waterless #hi-tech #toilets could be the #answer to #urban #Africa’s #waste #problems



About 23% of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa don’t have access to toilets while 31% with toilets use one’s that aren’t connected to a formal sanitation system. This means that more than half the people in sub-Saharan Africa live without proper sanitation – that’s about 570 million people.
