@viv perhaps their lack of ass means they directly drop shit simultaneously as it gets produced? That would make them the only person without any shit at all, at any given time.

Battle of Culloden

On this day, 275 years ago, the biggest disaster in Highland history took place on Drummossie Moor, Culloden, near Inverness.

A Highland army, supporting Bonnie Prince Charlie, made the fatal error of fighting a *pitched* battle against the British army, led by Butcher Cumberland.

views from a mountain 

celebrated being able to travel further than 5km for the first time this year by going for a sunset hike up errigal

it's the third time i've been up this mountain and it was definitely the toughest ascent so far given how little walking/hiking/climbing/general exercise i've done in the last few months but the views at the top took away what little was left of my breath, definitely worth it

Come down to maths, we got:
- Strange symbols (∈, Π, ℒ, etc.)
- Invoking the names of ancient practitioners to call on their knowledge (Citations)
- May sometimes summon demons (techbros)
- Sacred historic texts (Principia Mathematica, Elements, any textbook etc.)
- Frequently misunderstood

In the search for a desktop writefreely editor I came across 'ThiefMD'. Odd name for a program that'll let you write, in markdown, for writefreely, ghost and WordPress.

There're also local save options too

Flathub, debian (ppa), arch and rpm files available too it seems 😁
