It crazy how popular this image is!! Not suprised tho, it's super cool!!! This is part of a geological heritage project we are doing, so follow us on Instagram @below_bc or the website bbcga.com for more rocks, fossils and minerals!
Also going to thank @GeoscienceBC and @AME_BC for the funding for the heritage work this year! 1000+ likes on a geology tweet is something I never thought we'd get! Fossils rule am I right?!

I have reached a whole new level of #PISSEDOFF.

I didnt think such a #dark and #scary state, or level, could be reached. It may top 12-14-17's causation. It's. That. Bad. So, I've prepared a statement...

#PascoSheriff #HaveYouAllNoShame @CigarCityBeer
Dear @FBI,
I must implore you ask your colleauges in @FBITampa to help research this new level of #PISSEDOFFNESS. As locals, they may offer a special indepth knowledge of this new level I have reached. This is not fair & law enforcement must #investigate. No one deserves this.
This is my #apogee of #Pissedoffness.
If #motherfuckers & #tears werent a noticable level.
If #HUSH or #INTIMIDATION tactics being deployed didnt strike a chord.
If #EVIDENCE, PROOF, or 30k Bonds didnt #WOW YOU.
If posting mom with no shred of investigatable value wasnt enough...

Draadje met zeer zorgelijke ontwikkelingen ... waarbij de vraag is: wat is vrijheid van meningsuiting? Als ik op #4chan en #reddit kijk dan zie ik dingen waar de rillingen van over je rug lopen, ik hoop van harte dat DIE zaken aandacht krijgen van de handhavers van de wet 👇🏼
U zult begrijpen dat ik de beelden die ik daar aantref niet hier op twitter deel. Ten eerste gun ik racisten dat podium niet en ten tweede wil ik onder geen beding de polarisatie nog verder aanwakkeren.
Op zich heb ik het al druk genoeg om de polarisatie het hoofd te bieden in dialoog met studenten. Daarnaast denk ik dat we racisme en discriminatie in alle toonaarden moeten bestrijden.

Ik volg het voorbeeld van burgemeester Aboutaleb melddiscriminatie.nu

0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

On #Twitter the #GiletJaunes hashtag is more of an #American far right #disinformation campaign. Some of these accounts could be #Russian? I don't know.

#Paris #YellowVest
This network graph was collected using the #GiletJaunes and #YellowVest hashtags on December 2 2018
You can clearly see that the hashtags are dominated by Pro-#Trump and #QAnon accounts.
I have made the #disinformation accounts red and abnormally large.
Here is a spreadsheet with the information for each node on the graph.

The opposition to #QAnon is mildly shocking and shows me how little the average person is interested in deep dive research, reading and soul searching critical thinking. I get it but it’s still so appalling that people will reject something so adamantly without reading it.. #MAGA
I started following #QAnon back around Halloween of 2017. Just after the posts started to appear on #4Chan. I never migrated to that board. Originally I heard about Q on the generalist conspiracy message board Above Top Secret.
#ATS was a place I visited mostly for entertainment value. At first when I read about #QAnon, I was intrigued but not at all sold on what was actually happening. As certain events such as Podesta and #HRC‘s supposed Arrest Dates passed, I questioned the movement.

Today is a challenge - on and off for the next 12 hours, now that the GDPR dust is settling, I am going to try and Tweet about nothing but the #EUCopyrightDirective - BECAUSE, YE GODS, YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS:

techdirt.com/articles/20180…

HT @mmasnick CC @OpenRightsGroup
If you want a video about how YOU should demand that the EU #DeleteArt13 of the #EUCopyrightDirective, maybe start with this one:
If you would like an authoritative voice regards why we YOU need to act to get the EU to #DeleteArt13 - to avoid the Internet and Web being swamped with a "Link Tax", here is the perspective of German Euro-MP, Julia Reda: juliareda.eu/2018/05/censor…

Hace tan sólo 15.000 años el mundo estaba sumido en el último máximo glaciar. La temperatura media global estaba unos 4 - 5 ºC por debajo de la temperatura de mediados del siglo XX.

Hacía fresco, había más hielo... y el mundo era bastante distinto al que conocemos. Va hilo.
La última glaciación (Glaciación Würm en Europa, Glaciación Wisconsin en América) tuvo lugar aproximadamente entre 110.000 y 10.000 años BP. El momento álgido, hacia el final de la glaciación, bajó los niveles del mar entre 100 metros y 120 metros (respecto a los actuales).
Un mapa físico de cómo era el mundo en esas condiciones se puede visualizar rápidamente en este gran mapa que me he encontrado en #reddit hoy (y que me ha dado la idea para este hilo (en alta resolución --> i.redd.it/g1s96i1sznt01.… )

Either #reddit is intentionally hiding the full extent of what the Internet research agency was doing OR they just have no clue how to identify the accounts. The 940 accounts they list were mostly trash.

#TrollFactory #IRA #Putin #Russia

reddit.com/r/announcement… via @reddit
while digging around in the list they posted i noticed a website some of the accounts posted links to
butthis.com
The site is gone now. But there is an archive of it here:

web.archive.org/web/2016010919…
This is kind of an obscure website, a lot like blackmattersus.com, blacktolive.org, and hilltendo.com.
All known IRA ran websites. All posted to reddit by known IRA ran accounts.
