@jay Look, it was a crime that you weren't following me before, but I'll wave the fines because you're too cute

We have and , but I propose a new weekly holiday:

I'll start by saying that I am thankful for all of the wonderful new friends that I have made here. You've taught me a ton about myself, and have brightened my day more times than you know. Thank you :bowie_heart:

For those of you who don't have multiple phone numbers, the number that you used to sign up on job websites and fill out applications with is the number that scammers have. I suggest using any phone app to get multiple numbers so your personal number will not get scam and spam calls.

If it was the nature of humanity to kill itself, we'd have been wiped out a long time ago.

Humanity will find a way to move on while whiteness eats itself.
