@bookstodon I just reviewed SO LATE IN THE DAY: STORIES OF MEN AND WOMEN, by Claire Keegan. This is a trio of stories which explores the relationships of men and women, and what they want from each other, in very engaging prose. Keegan has a lot to say, and her message is sharp-edged. The writing is top-notch.
Cover image is almost a psychological test: a blood red sky, an uninterrupted line of buildings to the edge of the island, and a slice image of a ferry on the water. Is the ferry approaching the island, or moving away from it? I say it's moving away, because of the effect of the stories. You may glean something else.
#TIL: Young children (up until the age of about 7 - 11) can regenerate their fingertips.
This is from "We Are Electric" by Sally Adee, which is all about the body's bioelectric code. Apparently electrical fields and electrical charges are the software to the hardware that is our DNA.
The fingertip regeneration was discovered by researchers investigating how salamanders regenerate limbs. Of course it's not something you can easily test, but there are enough people who grew up without easy access to medical care that this is a known fact.
Someone on here recommended “The Colony” and I have just finished it and loved it. So thank you @bookstadon
Stumbled across this bus picture from METRO A Line BRT in Minneapolis, MN 🇺🇸 in this article https://www.kimley-horn.com/news-insights/perspectives/bus-rapid-transit-design-efficient-urban-transit/
At one level “oooh easy way to carry bikes on a bus”
At another level “imagine you're a pedestrian and get hit by that, and what about the driver's line of sight”
I'm pretty sure this would not be allowed in Europe
