From latin "Murmuratio", for murmur, whisper.

"Starlings returning to their winter roost in a swirl after feeding. A starling flock like this is called a murmuration, a word that perfectly describes the rustle of thousands of pairs of wings."

Beautiful. Mesmerising maths in the wild.

From Neil Gaiman, 2/2 :

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever."

Neil Gaiman

From Neil Gaiman, 1/2 :

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

The clerk nodded politely and kept wrapping up the rare tome.
"But Arms&Armour is a strange name for a bookshop."
"We are not," the clerk said, "a bookshop. We sell all you need to defend yourself."
"Like swords? Ha ha."
"That too."
