I went on r/linux last night and saw a fair amount of upvoted vitriol going around on a few non-technical threads about Linus and the CoC.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
Pubs/restaurants in train stations should list an "average cooking time" so you know how long you have to get it and eat or before your next train.
Some weird point I keep seeing on Birdsite is that CWs steal due attention and deserved views away from content creators...
