photo of my screen

Above is the "screenshot" of my screen. You can see all the icons have changed into a weird rectangle and I cannot run the terminal. So I had to take the photo with my tablet. Should I reinstall ubuntu? I have installed ubuntu on my external ssd. I am using the latest version of ubuntu. Also, the home folder says its empty.

Looks like a problem with a drive to me. Perhaps a drive has been disconnected.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
