Somebody shared Tumblr screenshots about the Tiffany problem, and one of them was about Bartholomeus Anglicus (d. 1272).

And I was like, yay Bartholomeus!

I love him for two reasons:

1) his encyclopedia has some really bizarre entries. I posted my rough translation of his list of elephant facts a while back (want to see it again?). I should do more.

2) the English editions of 1398 and 1582 both translate the word for pubic hair as "netherbeard", which is a word deserving wider usage.

#chapeau (Python-based fediverse daemon) now also supports some of the Mastodon API; when I have passing tests for all the rest that's written, it will be the v0.40 release

still to do before 1.0: media uploads in general, and lots more documentation.

chapeau has also been called
- kepi, after one of its components
- un_chapeau, in early drafts

the name is a Little Prince reference, since it's a bit like a mastodon in python

By the way, I'm happy to find local activist/leftist groups for you if you DM me your general area (county, closest city, etc). I've been doing this for a while so I know generally what to look for, though I'm not as familiar with the organizations outside of the so-called US, and the language barrier will make it tougher in countries where English isn't the primary language. But I still try and rarely ever come up with absolutely nothing

Please boost this! Getting organized at the local level is very very important!!!

@garbados what is a government? a miserable little pile of secrets

"The Happiness Patrol" is my favourite Doctor Who:
- Unsubtle anti-Thatcher satire
- Critique of superficial enforced happiness
- Seven and Ace

HAPPINESS WILL PREVAIL

Can you test the installation instructions for kepi, and let me know whether they work?

If not, can you boost and ask your friends?

Thank you all <3

Things that US-Americans seem to believe about other countries:

- every country works exactly like the US
- every other country is a shithole that has no "freedom"
- sweden is a socialist paradise
- venezuela was ruined by socialism
- every country they dont like is a dictatorship
- monarchies are cool, and somehow completely different from dictatorships
