Today the @Space_Station briefly transited the 5.6% crescent moon. This was the most difficult transit I've ever attempted to capture- it required taking over 150 pictures per second to make sure I got it lined up properly. #astrophotography #space #opteam

The 1970 British #TV show UFO had several neat things going for it:
- Catchy intro music ( youtube.com/watch?v=j2PoXfZdYV )

- Inspired the X-COM game series

- Purple wigs as uniforms.

No, seriously: "Wigs were very popular in the late 1960's, and Sylvia Anderson envisioned that wigs might someday become part of a uniform. Sylvia designed the Moonbase outfits and the wigs, and has been quoted as saying that the purple wigs came about simply because she liked them!"

At the same time when China/India passes some law affecting more people of Earth = lol, what, who cares. Third world or something.

🤦

Silly folks.

SCOTUS decision = whole world law. M’kay. I’ve US‑centrist mind set, m’kay.

I did it! I merged #Guix code that includes 4- and 6-year old commits, no less, and that have been rebased a number of times.
