spent all weekend preparing to host social event today, just a low key get-together for 9 of my 4yo's school friends and their parents
i mean it was low key because it wasnt a music blasting kegger but there was 5 hours of pre kinders running around, jumping on beds, arguing over toys, screaming the whole time
it went well, inconsequential, guests seemed to enjoy it, i was pretty comfortable throughout, felt tired but good afterward
fuck yeah brain pills, doing their job properly, all right

this looks really cool; a programming language where all code is published in a global append-only database of functions; when you call a function you are just invoking the local name you've assigned to a content-based hash of its code.

perusing the Fedco seed catalog and found the 4 freedoms for free software repurposed for seeds!
"OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) opposes intellectual property (IP) provisions
that restrict what OSSI has identified as the four seed freedoms:
1. The freedom to save or grow seed for replanting or any other purpose.
2. The freedom to share, trade, or sell seed to others.
3. The freedom to trial and study seed and to share or publish information about it.
4. The freedom to select or adapt the seed, make crosses with it, or use it to breed new lines and varieties."
