Clicker training someone who knows what clicker training is, so every time the click goes off they frown or give a little indignant huff, because they know what it means and it what it's supposed to do, and the idea that it would work on a sophisticated mind like theirs is a little insulting

It works regardless, of course

You may have seen a lot of accounts on here use a rainbow pentagon logo that looks like this :fediverse:

This is the Fediverse logo, or at least the most widely-used one.

The Fediverse doesn't have any central authority so there will never be an official logo. However, many unofficial suggestions have been published, and the one which has gained the widest acceptance is this one:

Its creator released it into the Public Domain, so anyone can use it in any way they see fit. It's sort of like the flag of the Fedi, used to represent it in discussions, events, sites and apps.

Isekai about a team of extractors rescuing those who were basically kidnapped by the gods of other worlds. An excuse to mix literally every genre.

Custody cases that go to higher-dimensional courts. Infernal contract law disputes. Criminal prosecution of repeat offender deities. Worlds and Wards of the Quantum State put up for adoption. Lots of ideas.

Somebody write this Sword Art Online x Law & Order fanfic.

"Oh dear, you have a lot of... things."
The cyborg looked up. "The word is prosthetics."
"So much machinery. Don't you worry you will stop being human?"
"Oh, there is a line I will not cross."
"What line is that?"
"I will not question another person's humanity."

Let's see if I can sell some of these #calligraphy pieces :D

Disclaimer, things are taking a few weeks to a couple of months to arrive worldwide from South Africa.

The red one is A4 size, the rest are A5, either on thick white art paper or on Daler Rowney calligraphy paper that's textured and looks like parchment.

$75 USD (which includes shipping) for any of these. Let me know if you want a closer look at any of them.

First come first serve, reply to grab one.

I added three more birds to my "animal book" this morning.

All of them photographed the day of my brothers wedding 😃🥰

I had such a good day yesterday, talking with my family and friends, and enjoying a beautiful walk in the woods!

Was idly wondering if oysters had sexes and was amply rewarded for my curiosity

I’m reading a book on the multiverse ( and it made me wonder why some people get existential dread from contemplating the scope of the universe(s), while others can accept it without it being a big deal?

Lil Nas X's anthem for Worlds 2022 has me revisiting previous years' tracks and marveling at their catchyness and tremendous animation!

(Riot the company sucks, but their music video acumen is undeniable)

When youtube user "My Mechanics" restored some completely trashed 80-year old headphones, he could've bought a couple modern 2000-ohm resistors for 25 cents apiece because they'll be inside the headphones where no one will ever see them anyway

Instead of doing that, of course, he just made new ones. Four of them, because each earpiece had two 1,000 ohm resistors in series.

I have been running into a situation where I keep using "RTX" to refer to hardware raytracing acceleration, but this is misleading because RTX is actually NVidia's trademark for their specific implementation and sometimes you want to contrast NVidia with AMD. To solve this, I would like to propose we now refer to the underlying technology as "HRT", for "Hardware Raytracing". "Within ten years all gamers will have access to HRT", et cetera
