:blobCatPeek: Hey fedi.

I would like a favour please:

Give your cat scritches.

Tell your dog they are good.

Give your bearded dragon a tasty treat.

Just go forth and be lovely to your pet for no reason.

Pets are awesome and offering affection helps your bond with them grow. So go do that!

:blobCatPeek: ok thanks

Does anyone know what a thomasson is? Let me explain.

Wikipedia would describe a thomasson is a useless structure or relic that has been preserved as part of a building or environment that has become a sort of piece of art in itself. Examples would include some stairs that mysteriously go nowhere, a gate without a fence, an old now unused telephone pole standing free on its own, etc. On object that has the appearance of conceptual art even though they were not originally created to be such.

Turns out, while the clinic dutifully fill in the metadata, they're doing it in a funny way. Instead of using tags specified by the standard, they're using different ones. Namely Military branch and military rank.

So our car was recorded being in cat branch of military and having rank of Siamese.

i enjoy seeing opensource folks get into it, while trying to keep it friendly but also not
