@noelle and yet somehow I'm sure it will find a way to get worse

Question for those with the "prevent new variants by vaccinating" hot takes, how are you vaccinating a billion deer, among whom SARS-COV-2 is pervasive? Or ~1B bats? Billions of mammals? Or will you try to kill 'em all like mink?

@malin How ancient. Today it takes 3 minutes for all the NPM dependencies to load up and display the image.

This message probably won't reach anyone in East Texas but I want to try.

My mom and sister are fostering 6 cats. They can't find anyone to adopt them and don't really have the means to care for as many pets as they have.

The cats were (thankfully) neutered by a cat humane society.

If you want a cat and you can meet in Mount Vernon, Mount Pleasant, Winnsboro, or even any surrounding towns, please get in touch with me.

@Moon I just had a stranger DM asking for donations for a needy group the other day. I got the impression any donation might be enabling more of this requester's tourism than actual charity, so I almost ignored. But I did not want to pass up a real need. So I ended up referring them to DonorSee, a charity platform I advise that vets partners and each project. What you really need is someone to do some serious vetting. So I usually refer to serious charities, churches, etc. that do and fund them.

@furgar It's the inclusion of the height that really gets me.
