I was on an excursion to real working reactor today! It turned out you can just call them, and schedule a visit with a group of friends for couple of hundred PLN.

It was cool.

I was kinda disappointed that after serious investment whole installation lost it's vintage look straight from "communist" Poland ;) When I was working there, there was a plaque: "Inter-City telephone that way".

Byłem dziś na wycieczce w reaktorze w Świerku.

Plan wycieczki był taki: Najpierw wykład o energetyce i reaktorach, potem wejście do hali reaktora i oglądanie działającego reaktora i tyle.

Oprowadzajacy był kompetentny i nie robił błędów merytorycznych (nie dowiedziałem się niczego nowego, ale mam magistra z tego tematu więc nie oczekiwałem tego). Oprowadzający był w dobrej normie polskich starszawych naukowców.

Wycieczka trwa ok 3h, i kosztuje 300 złotych za grupę.

Greenwashing 

Sometime in May judge issued a sentence for fraud in a high-profile case. Two people were found guilty. We still don't know what the sentence is, cause judge is still reading the verdict, cause due to legal reasons you need read aloud name of every victim. And in this particular case there is about 20 thousand of them.

So there is actual judge in that mainly is reading aloud names of random people in , and this was what he was doing the whole summer.

Child abuse, Catholic Church 

Polish Politics, far right catholic 

Poland, nationalism ww2 

The more I read about USA (and ) here, I think we IS 51st state of the USA. With minor differences of better trains and worse GDP.

Poland Homphobia // Facism 

Right now in we have severe drug shortage. Drugs are missing for several reasons, but one of major ones is China closing some their pharmaceutical component factories that sold stuff to Polish producers. These factories were closed to reduce environmental pollution

Fuckin . We should promote producers that have as much supply chain in the EU.

Poland 

Another piece from is: there is a law that when you offer commodity service (eg. sell or print things) you need to offer it to to general public, and can't exclude people from the business on a whim.

There wasbig case where printer wouldn't print LGBT materials, was sued and lost.

Right wing court ruled it is conflicting with the constitution.

The problem is that mostly this law was used to force businesses to handle eg. wheelchaired customers.

The story from for today is: in some car factory owners (Volvo) wanted to open a LGBT support group. This was opposed by local unions.

Climate hot take 

Only good thing in living in Catholic run country is that shitload of days important in canonical calendar are also state holiday.

Guess who has free day tomorrow due to Corpus Christi holiday?
