Some polls for users of #Telegram, regarding animated stickers. A bit niche, I know!

The best thing about crushes is that you can just enjoy them and it doesn鈥檛 ever have to be anything more.

You MUST play AI Dungeon 2, a text adventure game run by a neural net.

@nickwalton00 built it using @OpenAI's huge GPT-2-1.5B model, and it will respond reasonably to just about anything you try. Such as eating the moon.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

let's settle this once and for all

Every garden should have a log or two, it says. And landscape fabric is, to paraphrase liberally, the ecological spawn of the Devil.

sexism in science 

There isn't enough media celebrating people doing things just because they like to, whether they're objectively "good" at it or not.

You always hear about the ones with a talent in something, which is all well and good! But why should people feel discouraged from doing something just because they can't devote the time/energy to become "good" at it?

Why can't anyone doodle, draw, make comics, play music, write, etc. and enjoy it without feeling like they have to live up to a standard?

Transphobia, dysphoria 

Liberals, on the other hand, support the oppressed in principle but tend to evaluate the aggression of the oppressor and the oppressed with the same scale. That is the root of arguments like "workers shouldn't strike", "musanghi", "all lives matter", "not all men" and others.
