Hi folks!
Weatherlore is the topic at @folklorethurs today.

Here is an old mariner's Weatherlore saying,
"Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky at morning, sailor take warning."

HAG STONES

hag stones, also known variously as Witch Stones, Adder Stones, Snake Eggs, Hex Stones, Fairy Stones, Holy Stones, Holeys, and Eye Stones, are stones with a naturally worn hole in the middle.

They are found on beaches or near streams as they are formed by water flows wearing away at the stone's middle.

Often used as a generic luck charm or protection amulet from maline forces, they would be worn on cords around the necks of people, but also livestock and fishing boats.

In regions where belief in faeries was popular, it was said looking through the hole in the middle would let you see the Fae or spirits.

The thing I always think about London is most of the streets weren't designed as roads. They were built for pedestrians and retrofitted, so it would probably be easy to turn them back into walkable streets.

did you know that in france, japanese cartoons are called j'anime

why the fuck is "the maya mysteriously disappeared" like a thing you hear online in those pseudo science mystery channels??? like, we know where the Maya are, they're in Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize. there's like 6 million people who speak Mayan languages with a clear cultural continuity from like 900ad to modern day through the colonial period. they're right there, you can go talk to them, I'm sure some of them are lovely people

when i came to the fediverse i had to unlearn the response i had on twitter to be immediately combative to people in my mentions who would question what I said or suggest things, because on twitter they were almost always replyguys or sealioning.

however, the overwhelming majority of the time on fedi it's been well intentioned.

So I'm gonna run a hotbath, and while soak i will listen to the rain and read the hidden life of trees.

To this day I still haven't figured out if neo yokio is satire or not.

Like when I set up the blog I promised myself this would be about self expression and I would not get into metrics.
But I would be lying if seeing numbers go up didn't give me a small dopamine hit.

So every so often my blog will get a load of visitors and traffic will spike, and it's always the 'what is lunarpunk' article.
Suddenly starting to see why YouTube is full of 'x explained' videos

So just had an evening of going round the flat and WD40-ing nearly everything.
Never has the place been so free of squeaking and rattling.

So just had a thought, how is warhammer dealing with 3d printers?
Because i can see it being a big problem for their business model and i would be very surprised if someone hadn't already made a file for "conflict mallet 40k Astro marine"minifig

I mean, drag race Canada does show RuPaul doesn't actually bring anything to drag race and can be replaced.
