So... I've started studying business Informatics at a German University of Applied Sciences, and I've figured out they have an old #usenet server, so I connected to it and decided to say hello to figure out if there are any people still on it...

This GIF shows the impact the floods in western Germany had on the connections to my fediverse-server (perun.srv.1in1.net).
The first image shows the connections in the interval 10.07.2021 - 14.07.2021 on a map, the second one is 17.07.2021 - 22.07.2021. The overlay after the first frame shows the affected areas on a map by the German civil protection office.
I have to honestly say, it's so agrevating how rich people can just do what they want and not give a shit about everyone else... They just fly to the stars and not even bat an eye about the amount of money they are spending. This should be a wakeup call to all of us to finally tax the rich
