Python nerdery 

This will probably not be useful to anyone, but I just lost a couple of hours figuring this out:

The python-language-server from Palantir doesn't work properly. It messes up loading configuration form flake8, even though that is explicitly advertised in the README.

I have a slight red-green colorblindness so I don't know if that makes it worse.

Does someone have a suggestion for a nice color scheme? I'm using solarized-dark in the low-contrast version, but I would like something similar with even lower contrast. I especially dislike the intrusive red color.

It's not just the global south: the UK's independent Wealth Tax Commission recommended a one-time levy. Canadian PM Justin Trudeau wants to "tax extreme wealth inequality."

#WWI #worldwar1
The thing we can never really fathom about WW1 is the scale - the scale of people involved, the scale of death, even the scale of technology employed. This photo helps to bridge that gap - it shows a pile of empty shell cases from a single British bombardment of Hill 60 in 1916.
