TIL there's a Unicode block set up for the characters on the undeciphered Phaistos Disc, a 3500 year old Minoan artefact.
So if undeciphered characters are ok for Unicode: Who wants to help petition for a set of Voynich manuscript symbols?
Also: "No, it was four rats, not one rat glimpsed four times. There was no Schrodinger's rat." #saidtoday
Pol, right wing brain poison, other stuff
I think politics was broken as soon as the right realized that they could just do EVERYTHING in bad faith. NOTHING is genuine.
And then that started spilling over from their politics to all of their intellectual and social interaction. They even invented the phrase "virtue signaling" to tell us that they has become complete nihilists about good faith participation in anything.
Society hasn't even fully caught on, much less begun to work on an antidote.
I write books. All the time. I can't stop.
