Interesting 9-pointed star discovered while doodling and thinking about the unicursal hexagram. Hopefully it's not already some sort of demonic sigil.

I really like the subtext about Thor in this movie that just because you're kinda depressed and you haven't been taking good care of yourself doesn't make you any less worthy.
Casual reminders: Lyft and Uber both operate at massive losses. Lyft and Uber drivers are striking on the 8th. Capitalists only care about their profits.

There was a time when even the smartest weren't ashamed to use "beginner" languages. Our elitism dooms us to a world where only the elite are literate because we insist on writing in hireoglyphics and conclude that everyone who can't learn it must just be too dumb.
