Super weird.

I am on macOS. bup in nixpkgs is a wrapper that adds the git path and calls .bup-wrapped. Perfectly normal.

.bup-wrapped has a shebang that asks to please run this file with python. Perfectly normal, usually works. The OS or shell tries to run the file with the shell, resulting in "from: can't read /var/mail/__future__" whaat.

So I set some environment variables and call the wrapper with Python explicitly. When it tries to execve a subcommand same thing happens. Super odd.

Executable bits on the files are set.

The literal meaning for the slang term ‘poppycock’ is probably ‘pappy crap’ (from Dutch pappe ‘soft food’ + kak ‘dung’ - deriving from the PIE root *kakka- ‘to defecate’).

Pun: a stuffed animal with razor claws

So, who wants some ass. ?

@Shrigglepuss @ljwrites Interesting! And now I realize that the meanings combine in the Dutch "burcht", which can mean both a fortress or an underground animal shelter. And making the connection as well to "bergen", which is a verb that can mean to store/safekeep, to bury, as well as to salvage (a sunken ship).
