Hollow Knight mantis spoilers Show more
The Mantis Lords are my favorite boss fight in the game, for both mechanical and aesthetic reasons:
-The music fuckin' *slaps* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbDkU65pJNQ
-You don't just boorishly walk in and start the fight; you must formally challenge them
-You don't kill them; they graciously withdraw after they're satisfied with your demonstration of combat skill
-"Excellent, you've bested me. Now fight two of us."
-Afterwards, you earn all Mantis' respect and they won't attack
@tootapp Is there a way to choose images from a different album than “Moments” in the image dialog? I wanted to toot an image from a specific album but couldn’t find a way to do it.
@knownrobes I love how art sometimes shows up in the oddest places. Japan for instance has some really beautiful manhole covers...
Just found found a Danish sim card which will soon be deactivated.

Send me one of these old-fashioned texts. :D
I will receive them on an old Nokia phone (Nokia 3210).
I might post them here also. :)
(Also, feel free to send silent messages or to try to intercept messages if you have SS7 access. [Which you probably always wanted to do if you have access.)
"May I kiss you?" the android asked.
"Can't you tell?"
"I can analyse your expression, your breathing, temperature and more, and conclude you want me to."
"There you go."
"But that is me telling me you want me to. I need to hear you tell me you want me to."

This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.
It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."
The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.

when i think of the american revolution, i always remember this West Wing* quote and smile:
«We jumped out from behind bushes while the British came down the road in their bright red jackets, but never has a war been so courteously declared. It was on parchment with calligraphy, and "Your Highness, we beseech you on this day in Philadelphia to bite me, if you please."»
