The concept of libraries "lending" out ebooks is beyond ridiculous. There is no greater example of artificial scarcity. It's not even really artificial scarcity, it's beyond that, it's "contrived scarcity", there is no scarcity, you have to go out of your way to pretend like there is and then build an entire infrastructure to try to enforce this nonexistent scarcity.

Fellow #Jesus Followers: 

My wife's grandmother (87) was taken to the hospital at 1:30am. A brain tumor that was thought to be benign and not growing has been found to be malignant and is growing. She hates to be alone, and due to COVID restrictions, can only have visitors from 8am-8pm. Please pray for my our family today. Thanks. That's all we know for now.

I'd like to ask you people to boost this post to see how long it'd take for it to reach someone else from my town (Westervoort, The Netherlands).
Of course, that implies that I'm not the only one here that uses Mastodon, but hey, part of the challenge :)

Starting on the 18th of August 2020 :)
