It looks almost *cute* in its partially-eaten state, like some sort of small sea creature.

Do not be deceived.

Held: Google’s copying of the Java SE API, which included only those lines of code that were needed to allow programmers to put their accrued talents to work in a new and transformative program, was a fair use of that material as a matter of law. supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pd

It is a little unsettling cleaning the disconnected crumb-covered googly eyes off of plates.

Also I cannot believe I posted the cake without finding an excuse to slip in a Multiocular O: ꙮꙮꙮ

Cake is regular angel food. Gold finish is edible luster dust, some dry-painted and some suspended in lemon sugar glaze.

Googly eyes are googly eyes, stuck on with honey. (The eyes are not edible.)

(Ezekiel 1:16-18: "This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel... Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.”)

A little while ago, @brion asked if anyone had ever made a Biblically-Correct Angel Food Cake.

I couldn't find any, but having watched several seasons of Great British Bake-Off during the pandemic I felt that I, too, could do ridiculous things with cake.

Happy Easter!

@FiXato @brennen I went to measure mine and was expecting to get a smaller number because I'm a woman with shortish fingers (which I remember every time I try to play piano), but in fact I got 20.5 cm. Which, according to the study I found, is just about the average for women; men average around 22.5 cm.

has this been done? 

@brion (I have googly eyes. I have gold cake decorating dust. I have craft feathers. I have eggs. I think I'm ready.)

has this been done? 

@brion I have not forgotten about this! But I was thinking it would be good for Easter Sunday...

@brennen US paper money is just a smidge over 6" long, in case you need to estimate a measurement

If you hate trying on clothes/won't have a dressing room, bring a tape measure with you to measure things on the hanger (especially in thrift stores)

menstruation-related health PSA 

@platypus apparently people are saying it with Pfizer and Moderna!

menstruation-related health PSA 

@offby1 I don't know; I'm just reposting @mcmoots (minus the personal bits).

menstruation-related health PSA 

Had heard literally nothing about possible menstruation-related side effects from the vaccine until seeing someone else toot about theirs and finding out it apparently was a Thing, so maybe you hadn't heard either. (In any case I'll be less worried if weird shit happens when I eventually get my jab.)

menstrual tmi, medical system sexism 

@mcmoots huh, this is useful information that I had heard literally nothing about until your post.

Whenever people talk about something that would require me to watch a TikTok or YouTube or Instagram video, I very carefully weigh the desire to know what's going on against the desire to not watch a 3 minute video

@lxo The part of that statement I would nitpick is "craving recognition". I do owe him a great debt for the inspiration. But if anything, by the time we met, I very much wished the ideas could become larger than the person, and independent of him, rather than being so inextricably tied to him. I believe it would have done both the movement and the person a great service.
