Les morts du Covid pulmonaire sont de plus en plus des patients âgés. Mais ce n'est pas le cas pour les lésions graves du Covid cérébral.

it’s one of the days I want to ragequit everything

sleep more, care less, I guess

After a few fails, my first soft shackle!
The material is HMPE (High Modulus PolyEthylene, also called Dyneema).

A quite fascinating material with strange characteristics. 10 to 15 times more resistant than steel, almost as slippery as teflon, very lightweight, can float, and melts at a quite low temperature (danger).

It’s very popular in sailing, climbing and industrial applications… and slackline too.

The shackle below is able to hold 5 to 6 tons before breaking(!)

“like your hands are a tiny ten-person big band”
“Get some notes wrong here, it's jazz”
“Cross those hands! Impress your friends!”

Pour remettre les choses à leur place sur le délire des emails :

Il faut envoyer environ 1200 emails par semaine (!) avec son smartphone pour consommer autant que… un repas carné dans l'année.

En comptant 8 heures de sommeil par jour, ça veut dire 1 email toutes les 5 à 6 minutes … vs manger une fois de la viande dans l'année.


the result so far

I still need to tuck the tails of the knot, and apply tension (with a pulley system, to finish the knot dressing).
