I have no idea if this is true but it's such a wild concept I just love it.

Sunlight affects whether languages have a word for ‘blue’
"People with more exposure to sunlight are more likely to speak languages that lump green and blue together, under a term that linguists dub “grue.” That’s because of the effects of a lifetime of light exposure, the team speculates: Lots of Sun causes a condition called “lens brunescence” that makes it harder to distinguish the two hues."

So many people onhere have no clue how much I adore them

Tell all your friends how to install adblockers.

@guysoft Image recognition tools are generally not yet advanced enough to be useful.
And Honestly? No, I wouldn't want to bother regardless. Images on the Fediverse generally aren't that important. They become important when they're captioned, because then I know the person behind them cares about us and is willing to put in some minimum amount of effort because of that.
Apart from the regular "Please caption your images, people; we love reading your descriptions!" I can't do anything to convince people to bother with alt text. But if they don't want to bother, neither do I.
Also, I appreciate alt text exactly because it has that human touch. An AI reading out "picture of a black cat" wouldn't help at all. I want to know how cute that cat's soft paws are when curled in just that special way.

Hey y'all! 🤩

I'm new to mastodon! So I'm doing an #introduction

I'm Elyssa/Leelums and I'm a black artist that illustrates, dabbles in animation, video game design, and a lot of things! I love working with local artists to help them create their vision. I'm also currently in university!

I really want to help create a supportive empathetic community together here 😻

The European Road Haulers Association “I expect many drivers will not return to the UK even if the UK government allows them to”
