when Coronado figured out that he was leading him on, according to legend, he had his hands cut off and strangled him to death with them near the present-day site of Lindsborg, Kansas

The Native American wasn't even from the prairie, he was probably a Hopi or Pueblo who's whole plan was to get Coronado away from New Mexico because he was a horrible despot who raped and murdered all the time

as a native person myself i think about his sacrifice a lot

They answer "Dismantle the patriarchy!"

πŸŽ…: Ho ho ho! Hello children, I'm Santa's cousin, Arbitration Clause!

πŸ‘§πŸ½ πŸ‘¦πŸΌ : uh, what?

πŸŽ…: Did you know that many workplaces and services now make you to waive your right to bring complaints against them in court, and instead force you to appear before a private arbitrator that they choose and pay for?

πŸ‘§πŸ½ πŸ‘¦πŸΌ : oh jeeze, the left can't meme.

Me, on the phone: "I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users..."
