First thing Isabelle told was; "Oh, by the way, it's been so long! How are you? Neighbors have come asking me about you everyday..". Shit, nobody has treated me so nicely lately 😥

I'm just entering my town in Animal crossing after not having done it in.. months?, so let's see how many of my neighbors abandoned me 🙁

I can't believe I have too keep saying this but Taurine is not an Amino Acid. It is an acid and it contains an amino group but it isn't an amino acid because it is a sulfonic acid and not a carboxylic acid.

Also it does come from bull urine, though you will find some there, it usually is found in bile estered with bile acids (to create taurine bile salts) and it was first isolated in bull bile, the urine like colour in energy drinks like red bull don't come from taurine, or urine but from Riboflavin a yellow pigment and a B vitamin (FAD, MonoFlavin Oxidase, and several other Enzymes and co-enzymes use it) though it does give urine a fluoroyellow if you eat enough (see. 'Borroca Pee' for more details).

Okay, yesterday I went into a long night work shift after having exerted myself so much while cycling (back as I used to). Part of my self preparations to ditch this crappy "public" (bc's they're all private monopolies here) transportation, once and for all, from my daily routine. So I'm glad that I made out alive (not literally, but well, maybe a bit) from both, so I consider being able to toot this right now a win-win..

Seems there's a misconception of .art doing the rounds, so let me clear that up!

We're an art instance, but we *do not* expect or enforce our users to only post their artwork here - it's actually very much the opposite!

The Fediverse is a community, and .art is a community. We like knowing each other on that communal level. We like seeing what artists do when they're not creating art; snippets from each other's daily lives, pet photos, side projects. We're here to find new friends.

Some more pieces from when I asked people to blindly pic 3 #copic marker colors. This one was mostly greys, but I enjoyed that.

Couldn't agree more:

> Corporate language is filled with metaphors of war. Companies “conquer” the market, they “capture” mindshare, they “target” customers, they employ a sales “force”, they hire “head-hunters”, they “destroy” the competition, they pick their “battles”, and make a “killing”. That’s an awful paradigm and we want nothing to do with it. Work isn’t war. We come in peace.

There's nothing like getting your working or school schedule wrong. You get very focused and rushed (just in time), just to having to get back home, so relaxed.. back to sleep or whatever you like, amidst of the rest of (us) ants who happen to be late for their (forced) labour camps. And also everyone thinks you come from a late night shift, so everyone advises you to go pick some rest heheh😏
