It's actually only "Helvetica" if it comes from the Helvetia region of Europe. Otherwise you have to call it "sparkling Arial"
At the grocery store. TODAY.
Here's my 'big camera' photos from a trail I hiked with friends a few days ago. It's a short trail at just under 2km each way, but involves lots of rock scrambling and even some ladder-climbing :)
cookies (neural net inspired)
We've finished off the "Brown Cheesey Cookies" that my wife baked, inspired by @janellecshane's list of AI-generated cookies.
They were quite tasty, despite being made with actual cheese! (Babybel, specifically.)
She wrote up the inventing process and final recipe here:
"The internet of 1995 and 1999 and 2001 and even 2007 was a backwater by today’s standards, but to me, it was the most wonderful thing. It was strange and silly and experimental and constantly surprising, and it made you feel good about other people, because online, away from corporate media and every channel of established culture, other people turned out to be constantly surprising too. They [...] told you, to your eternal benefit, about what it was like to be someone other than yourself."
Twitter is like a train crashing into a burning dumpster, and the railroad owner won’t let firefighters in because they’re doing such a brisk business selling marshmallows.
Mastodon is like a small party: not as many people, but you can actually hear each other talk.

Comparing Voldemort & Grindelwald
But since both villains draw on WW2 parallels, both wizarding wars have a strong element of metaphoric racism. Grindelvald's followers & Voldemort's both believe their genetic group is superior and should be in charge.
And having said that, now I'm reminded of the line in Catherynne Valente's "Space Opera" about how *all* wars are about deciding who counts as a person, and who's just meat.
