TIL via a DeafBlind TikToker and confirmed via a DuckDuck search that, in an emergency situation, if you are with a (culturally!) DeafBlind person, drawing an X on their back or, barring that, palm, is a way to communicate "We have to get out of here, NO DISCUSSION."
Disability advocates often talk about the importance of not physically grabbing/moving people. Emergencies MAY be an exception but now you know a way to communicate instead!

MAJOR shout out to this developer based in Lagos who 3 years ago posted the only reasonable "get a React app set up with minor fuss" I have ever encountered. The only change I had to make was installing `babel-loader@7` and `webpack-cli` as dev dependencies.

Finished Witcher, I enjoyed it! It’s not the best series out there, and not the worst. Main thing is that I think Henry Cavill has done an A+ job with Geralt. The coloured contacts on a few of the characters were a bit distracting tho! Kinda weird when one character’s pupils are dialysed and another’s are itty bitty
