The earliest recorded use of the word "otherkin" for people who identify as other than human was July 9, 1990 in the Elfinkind Digest mailing list. Yesterday was July 9, 2020, so that word was coined exactly 30 years ago! Happy belated Otherkin Day!

Yessss. The bust of the first asshole from Louisiana who bought an officership and got killed while fighting to keep slaves got pulled down last night!
I passed this regularly and am delighted to see it down.
Also another bust of John McDonough got pulled down, he’s got a complicated relationship with the city - lots of money donated, lots of schools named for him, multiple busts, but also slave owner. More details on that here: https://www.wwltv.com/article/news/local/orleans/john-mcdonogh-statue-across-from-gallier-hall-toppled/289-5e5c243d-9d46-494c-8c89-6295acae283a
Feels pretty good, really!
slightly spoilery question
More than it already is at the start of the game? No.

Tonight I died in space by trying to get to the far half of the Sun Station, missing, using my suit jets to adjust my eccentric solar orbit to aim towards the home world, and crunched into a paste when landing on its moon.
I also saw inside the Ash Twin, visited the Quantum Moon, and got into the core of the gas giant. I’m down to one place with “more to do” and one big question mark on the rumor map. I think I am close to the end of Outer Wilds. Or at least to *an* end, apparently there is a good and bad end...
It’s pretty neat! I feel like there might be something to do after having a conversation there but I sure can’t figure it out...
I am finally on the Quantum Moon! Thanks for the tip, @Inumo ❤️

hacking up an old sticker to be some of those #SocialistTeeth everyone's on about this week
A small town in Washington is making their own corona economic relief money. Fuck waiting for DC to argue their way through more relief cash, take control of the monetary system. https://news.trust.org/item/20200709101434-84sxx
Not the first time she's done that :)
Printer #1 meeting went decently. They'd have to send the parts with the spot gloss out to their Texas plant as they don't have the setup for UV-cured gloss in the NOLA plant. Which would add like $400 i shipping to the whole affair. Still a lot better than overseas shipping! I'll have their quote on the various aspects of the project in a week or so.
...I like this.

Ah, thanks. I keep on turning off the image overlay so I can see what the hell I’m doing, I thought the cameras counted for “being seen” even if my eyes weren’t on the image at the moment!
outer wilds vague spoilers
yes please! I can use the camera to keep it in place, both by sticking it on the Moon pointer on the Moon Observatory on Ember Twin, and by tossing it out in space when I'm approaching the Moon, but the damn thing always vanishes when I hit it.
Hmm, I guess I could try to figure out which angle is the pole that it says people always land on, maybe, I dunno
