That quote is from this, which I recommend. englishproject.org/october-and
"Apostrophists who have been corporally punished as a means of learning punctuation rules are most likely to demand that lesser generations learn those same rules. However, in the twenty-first century, well-beaten apostrophists are dying daily, and, in truth, there are no rules. Many people find that hard to accept, but there is no authority beyond usage."

No Authority Beyond Usage is linguists' version of no gods no masters :)

re: art supply debate:

the people who bought me crappy supplies that broke on me within a matter of a week will always be held in higher esteem to me than the people who said i'm wasting my time and i should join the military instead

i drew in library books with crayon anyway

anyway that's all. support artistic pursuits in your kids and your family's kids. don't get hung up on it. when they start asking for more specific supplies, help 'em out. when they want more quality supplies, help 'em out. follow their pursuits. it's a good way to stay involved

Adult furries are what happens when adults work out that anthropomorphic animals didn't stop being expressive and fun just because one aged.

Furry conventions are what happens when adults work out that donning costumes, playing with cardboard boxes, photographing each other in silly poses, and/or playing a lot of video and/or board games with friends didn't get any less fun with age, either.

Here's a good news story about coral reefs: theguardian.com/environment/20

TLDR: they can be cultivated, even quite close to the equator, to restore a reef from bleaching and sediment damage. And Wasini Island, Kenya is showing how local people can be deeply engaged in the restoration and directly benefit from tourism to their newly resplendent reef + better fishing outside the restoration area.

I observe it in how people I know talk about them, as if they're not individuals, but an amorphous group.

Thinking about how a lot of adults, even progressive ones, just... don't think of children as people.

Why are role playing games always about orcs and dragons? Why not one about trying to get a stop sign installed on the corner of Westridge and Walnut St. where the cars drive too fast?

Gmail's "swipe to write a message for you" is a great feature for anyone who wants to spice up their conversations

Just keep revising the message until you come up with something an algorithm couldn't predict
