The Seikilos Epitaph is the world's oldest surviving complete musical composition (including notation), from the 1st or 2nd century AD. This Ancient Greek musical notation was found inscribed on a memorial monument in a Hellenistic area of what is now Turkey.
An English translation of the lyrics:
"While you live, shine
have no grief at all
life exists only for a short while
and Time demands his due."
And this same sentiment has carried on in song through to the 20th century:

Can confirm, ALL the cool kids in 1985 were prying their faces off with shop class screwdrivers in the lunch hour and going 'whoo look at me circuits' and frankly it all got a bit wearying and then of course there was a big stink from the parents and they banned doing it on school property
So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
A creature claiming to be a god travels to Earth to mock humanity. In the past, a god was nailed to a cross and since then we've become even more creative in disposing of gods. We are having a hard time keeping a straight face and the creature is starting to sense that something is not right.
