I thought I’d posted this a while back, but apparently I haven’t. Think of it as #AmongUs: Vegetable Edition. https://pixelfed.social/p/KelsonV/288122514469687296
Not sure “F/U” is the best abbreviation for “Follow up”
Soon the struggle begins to convince the kid to actually go to bed the last night of spring break.
Brute force login alert from a site I manage, letting me know that an IP had been locked out: “The last username they tried to sign in with was: ‘scamnumbersalert’.”
I…why would you even expect that to work?
No, brain, Duolingo and iNaturalist are not the same. I mean yes, they’re both green icons and they both have owls in them, but that’s about as far as it goes.
An outdoor mall extension completed in 2020. Which wasn’t exactly ideal timing.
The courtyard was at least someplace they could set up chairs and signs reminding you to keep your distance. I saw a few people walking through on their way to somewhere else (like I was), and could hear an exercise class running in the parking structure next door.
Who knew a hawk could be a #birb?
Spotted in a park. Probably a Cooper’s Hawk.
I heard a lot of chirping from this tree, and saw a cluster that looks like it could be a nest near where this hawk was standing guard. It just kind of looked around the whole time even as I walked past the tree. If it was standing guard, it must have been able to tell I wasn’t a threat.

Heh. “Why Does Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall Volcano Look Like a School Science Project?” And why the type of lava and type of eruption make it (comparatively) safe for people to see it up close.
Tholomyes is losing his hair and teeth. How the heck did I not make that connection before?
Interesting: “Across many experiments, participants tried to fix problems by adding stuff” even when removing something was a simpler solution.
And now I’m reminded of an essay I saw years ago about how people are more likely to ask for a preference to change application behavior than just ask it to change.
Every time through the book, the bishop’s chapters are more interesting. But “In the Year 1817” gets more tedious each time through.
Argot, the sewers, the convent – there’s at least some substance there and you can see how things connect. “1817” is just a list of contemporary pop culture references that would already have been barely relevant 50 years on, never mind 200 years on and across the world.
Modern editions of it have more footnotes than text. Last time I read it, it took forever because I was looking up every footnote as I got to it.
And it’s all ONE LONG PARAGRAPH.
Statue of Ramona Quimby, one of several inspired by Beverly Cleary characters in Grant Park in Portland, Oregon. Photo from a trip in 2013.
TBH, though, Atlas Obscura got better photos than I did:
