Beauty is Everywhere

"Every year, roughly 10 particles of space dust land on each square meter of Earth’s surface. 'That means that they are everywhere. They are on the streets. They are in your home. You may even have some cosmic dust on your clothes,' said Matthew Genge, a planetary scientist at Imperial College London who specializes in these alien dust grains, known as micrometeorites."


If a web page in 2021 won't let you highlight, cut and paste text then this television from 1983 might be an improvement:

So @derek (& anyone else who might know) -- apparently Twitter is shutting down film focused accounts. It seems to be related to DMCA for posting screenshots, as best I can tell. A couple pretty big ones have been canned and I was going to recommend them to, but it looks like your server is closed to new members. Are there any other film-centric servers you know of?

'It's an ancient Greek play! Why do you have a fursuit?'
'It was you who told me I was going to play one of the three furries!'
'The three _Furies_! Furies! Did you really think there were furries in ancient greece?'
'Oh come on, you sent us all those stories about that Zeus dude disguising as animals to have sex, what was I supposed to think?'

Die Verbreitung von Fehlinformation, Hass und Angst bezüglich Covid-19 und anderen Dingen nimmt zu. Diese Instanz soll ein angenehmer Ort sein, Verschwörungsmythen soll hier keine Bühne gegeben werden.

Wir gehen nun etwas strikter vor: betroffene Konten erhalten eine Warnung und mangelnde Kooperation wird zu Konto-Schließungen führen.

Einige Konten können ohne Warnung entfernt werden, wenn sie zu aggressiv handeln.

Wir gehen hierbei so faktenbasiert und fair wie möglich vor.

Kind of a weird one:
Do you know a blonde I think skandinavian guy that might have been running around #ccc events trying to sell people on plan9 with a special focus on name spacing? I talked to him a few years in a row and would like to establish contact.

I started the Kittens Game yesterday, and I'm utterly baffled that now I'm breeding unicorns.


I generally won't post pics of a recipe beyond the first time I make it unless I've made a lot of revisions or it turned out especially good. But since I'm on a new instance and have some new followers, I'll share last night's dinner. Wham! Chowder - My #vegan take on clam chowder. Shiitake mushrooms give the clam-y texture. I changed the way I'm getting the fishy taste. Instead of kelp powder or dulce flakes, I added a sheet of nori to the blender when I made the cashew cream. #willcooks

This sleepy beauty was out on our walk today.

Slow worm.

Not a snake 🐍
But a legless lizard.

Carefully returned back to long grass after our wife had checked it over.

Also saw a baby common lizard while picking mushrooms, but that was quick to scarper under cover before a picture.

Note to self: do not leave the light box's access flap open when it's not in use.

You know how people sometimes have a sudden taste for, like, salt & vinegar chips?

I had a sudden urge to play with Lisp.

Am I ill? Should I worry?

Hi everyone. I'm new to after spending time on and before that.

I am a #vegan cook, constantly experimenting with new recipes and techniques.

I read a lot of Science Fiction, a little bit of Fantasy, and a smattering of anything else.

I drink bourbon and am always looking to try new ones.

A company pays me on a regular basis to be a numbers geek. (Although they did stop for a while in 2020 due to closures).

Seitan-mushroom roast with wild rice stuffing. This was more time consuming than most meals I cook, but 2/3 of it is being frozen and will be easy meals later. #vegan #willcooks
