Unashamed space colonist & atomic energy enthusiast. Getting ourselves out of tight spots using technology is pretty much what we humans DO. Appeared in the 2012 documentary “Lunarcy!” & still occasionally get contacted by people who have seen it recently on CBC. Low-key supervillain, looking to build a better world that will be worth conquering. Not a typography nerd, but enjoy using LaTeX.

This video now has English subtitles for the on-screen German-language captions! (The film itself is silent.) Thanks again to @SDF for the effort which went into upgrading the PeerTube instance so that this feature now works.

Another day, another $9.85 in postage. (Yesterday was an exceptional $16.80.)

I've said it before, I'll say it again : for someone who isn't very outgoing, I certainly have a lot of outgoing mail.

I bought a whole carton of Hostess Apple Pies at the salvage grocery place.

What is there to say about these things that hasn't already been said by the great minds of the past?

Philostratus, in his "Life of Apollonius", points out that they would be better without the sugar glaze. And Plato himself, in the 8th book of the "Republic", observes that they're really a kind of turnover rather than pie as such.
