The 1996 website for #Babylon5 is mostly archived and I love it.

This reveals (or reminds) fun things like how Warner Bros used to host an official IRC server for fans of their shows and 360" panoramas of the sets in Quicktime VR.

"Right now, all of the places we can assemble on the web in any kind of numbers are privately owned. And privately-owned public spaces aren’t real public spaces. They don’t allow for the play and the chaos and the creativity and brilliance that only arise in spaces that don’t exist purely to generate profit. And they’re susceptible to being gradually gaslighted by the companies that own them."
Sperm whales and copepods use the same mechanism to control their buoyancy.

Yay, #BeardGrabber's development is perfectly fine. :)
Apparently his speech development even is 'far above average', which does silence my worries a bit that #Norwegian not being my native language, and his mother and me still frequently speaking English together, would hurt his own #language development. :)
I just wanna watch interesting animals do interesting animal things. You don't need to make it into some kind of action thriller.
American nature documentaries are so ridiculous.

↑ From the article: «"Eye of Newt" is a folk name for Mustard Seed #Brassica nigra, while "Toe of Frog" may refer to a type of #Buttercup. "Tongue of Dog" is Houndstongue #Cynoglossum officinale, a plant that has some toxic properties that mainly affect cattle and horses. "Adder's Fork" is a fern more commonly known as Adder's Tongue #Ophioglossum vulgatum and is useful for aiding the healing of wounds and bruises.»
All the disgusting sounding ingredients in recipes for witches were just alternative names for herbs?
The other day in a hardware store:
*a random child cries for a while elsewhere in the store*
<2yo BeardGrabber> Uff, det bråker! ("Oof, what a noise!")
*Me, laughing and awkwardly glad the other parent likely didn't hear him*
<FiXato> You frequently make the same sound, dear. ;)
Lately #BeardGrabber's been combining that "Uff, det [...]" phrase with various other words. xD
Lifted from another thread¹ about a blog published via the #Gemini protocol, I present my fictional fiction book cover for the #cyberThriller "Gemini Protocol":

This #dailyPhoto is of a #sunset that will always be special to me as it was the first one I saw as father of #BeardGrabber, 2 years ago.
A perfect peaceful scene to end a scary, stressful, yet amazing day.
After playing around with @krita and and exploring the various brushes I installed yesterday, I ended up with this #drawing that I'm quite satisfied with.
It's perhaps a bit more #abstract than the previous one, but it reminds me a bit of the #waxPaintings someone I followed on #GooglePlus used to make.
So far I quite like #Krita; it brings back some of the fun I used to have in high-school, playing with #PaintShopPro, perhaps mixed with some #BobRoss #JoyOfPainting.
I was going to do some writing, but instead decided to play around with #Krita after being a bit inspired by the #albumArt of #Avantasia's #Moonglow album: https://powermetal.no/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/43952791_10156310950273889_8173911767513038848_n.jpg
So, here's the result of playing around for the first time in @krita for 30-45 minutes or so. :)
