a striking photo of the wild bank building donning its summer coat. its bright coloration conceals its predatory nature; individuals of the genus Argentarius are sessile carnivores like pitcher plants or venus flytraps but preferring large mammalian prey. this "pride-coat" is a recent adaptation, widespread but contained to specific urban microbiomes where the twin pressures of gentrification and hegemonic assimilation are strongest. while this makes the biomes even more riotously colorful than usual, the corporations within are no less dangerous than the rest of the year - they have merely camouflaged themselves to better mimic the world around them!

"can anyone help me troubleshoot, the upgrade docs aren't helping me"

"you should try reading the upgrade docs"
