Hmm... They say that extra-solar asteroid is cylindrical in shape. Clearly we've got a 'Rendezvous With Rama' situation here.

Reminder : "Over the River and Through the Woods" was originally intended as a Thanksgiving carol, so you can probably now start singing it unashamedly.

(It's too early for proper *Christmas* carols, of course.)

@BrodyBr Neat! I don't even WANT to migrate my account, but I'll feel a lot better knowing it can be done.

Is it possible to follow people on counter.social ?

Of have they gone full tinfoil hat and you can't even view people's profiles?

Tossing pennies down a wishing well was fine in the 1700s, but today, to correct for inflation, the recommended procedure is to look down the well and shout your credit card number.

My middle-aged self turned up, full of advice and instructions. I nodded along.
My old self had already warned me, and told me to ignore it.

I don't understand why suddenly the cool idea is using blockchains for advertising.

Why ... would that be better? I don't understand the advantage?

I hope that, one day, life extension technology will allow me to become the 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 kind of millennial.

I don't know where you live, but here in the Boston area, falling back has put the sun high enough in the sky to be comfortable for most people's morning commute.

And the sunset would have been in people's eyes during the evening commute, but now it's down entirely.

@msh

Your plan would increase night-driving (and hence traffic accidents.)

After a certain point, evenings are a lost cause, but the morning commute can still be salvaged.

Fun Truth that's different than what you learned on Twitter :

Daylights Saving Time increases traffic accidents ... for about two days. For the remainder of the eight months it's active it DECREASES traffic accidents.

As far as traffic accidents go, it's a huge net positive.

Fact : Scientists now know that many species of dragons were actually covered in feathers.

I don't understand China's Tiangong program.

Why build space stations and then not use them?

If you had a secret door disguised as a bookshelf, what book would you use as the latch?

I wish I'd gone through a punk phase when I was in my early teens so I'd have some hilarious photos to share now.

@selfnoise it's not like they could have used the ballots again next year.

Idea : Abridged Versions of classic games.

I'd like to play, for example, Chrono Cross again, but there's no way I'm going to dedicate 60hrs to it.

They need to make a "New Game Minus" where I can replay it and just hit the high-points.
