I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.
Starting now: Catholics are gathered on the Capital lawn to protest the Trump Administration’s immigration policies and to call on Congress to defund ICE, stop detaining children and reform immigration policies they’re calling “inhumane.” They’re calling this #catholicdayofaction
'...should we be aiming for a new decentralised energy system – a world of windmills and solar cells and electric bikes and community energy trusts?
To some extent, I think this is possible and indeed attractive, leading to a greater sense of control and involvement by citizens in the provision of energy. But we should be under no illusions – this artisanal also has to be enabled by the industrial.'
Other positives here so far;
- Oh my God the food
- Beer is very cheap, anything more complex gets super expensive though because market demand for booze in a majority Muslim country is hard
- People are nice
- Cheap unlimited data SIM
- Traffic is scary
- The butt hose
- Traveling on foot can be a challenge because huge construction sites etc.
What's really weird though, is my favourite part of any holiday is when I "get" where we are. I understand the public transport system a bit, I can say "where's the bathroom/atm/train station" in the local language if they don't speak English etc. It's a weird "favourite" thing. My kid's favourite thing is always breakfast.
