evanmiltenburg Though “oplichter” would virtually never be used in this sense. So:

1. The GT system has a pretty good sense of morphology, but
2. It has rarely seen this specific term, and it is unaware of the “scammer” meaning.

evanmiltenburg Google Translate for Dutch still needs some work..

“Waardeloze oplichters” (worthless scammers) gets translated as “Valuable candles”.

Waardeloze -> Valuable: translation to an antonym.

Oplichters -> Candles: very creative! “Oplichten” could mean “to light up.”

HPS_Vanessa Reminder that one industry contributes up to half of these plastics. Fishing. Doing less of that decreases plastic *and* increases fish numbers! Giving up fish for food likely has more impact than your straw, your cup, etc. Yet it's not even part of the popular convo. Wonder why. twitter.com/BritishSciFest…

UrbanFoxxxx Sand-filled rooms in houses in the ghost town of Kolmanskop, southern Namibia. Once a small, prosperous diamond-mining village, Kolmanskop was abandoned in the 1950s and it's been slowly swallowed by the desert ever since.

brianphillips MISSED CONNECTIONS

ME: A wide-eyed Instagram peruser

YOU: A close-up shot of the inside of a beehive I think? And maybe the words “avalanche” and “steamboat”?

I scrolled through a thousand babies and symmetrical buildings and never caught sight of you again

wimmchri Damit ich das jetzt richtig verstehe: Alles, was ich vom Nettoeinkommen bezahle, ist gut (Auto, Kino, Urlaub, Essen) und nennt sich Wohlstand. Alles, was ich vorher bezahle, ist schlecht (Sicherheit, Straßen, Demokratie, Rechtswesen) und nennt sich Belastung. Korrekt? 🙄 twitter.com/agendaaustria/…
