We know about the peak in November 2016, but what is the earlier one? It's not the air date of the Community episode

In a more sane world, we might never have Batman films directed by Tim Burton. You've got to take the bad with the good.

For that matter, we might never have seen bat-nipples on the big screen.

Stanford and several other universities have implemented their requirements such that the longer your password/phrase is, the fewer types of characters you need in it. This is pretty easy to set up on a *nix domain with PAM config options, and for Windows requires a custom PassFilt.dll loaded on your DCs.

A lady who helps people de-clutter suggested getting rid of books we do not love (with a concession writers and researchers may be more lax). And book social media is losing its dang mind and calling books magic objects that come into our lives for a reason and and and....

Book culture on social media is like this. It's the performance of books as magic objects, and elevating consuming them into this unique act.

Holy shit yall. An actual fucking trans flag outside a congressional office.

It amazes me that the Kuiper Belt is so empty that it is a largely collisionless region of space (there is only one collisional family out there, the Haumea family: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haumea_f) and yet the first object we visit beyond Pluto is TWO objects kissing.
