Found it in this amazing shop where you get to go around and smell every one of the teas

Discovered a caffeine free tea I approve of teatotal.co.nz/tea/ayurvedic-b

"Cinnamon, liquorice root, orange peel, fennel and cardamon"

I want to draw a red circle around it but it is already sufficiently visual aberrant to be clearly indicated.

For other saturations and lightnesses, yellow is fine, starts to go wrong at the higher reaches.

(, tasteweb) trying to get randomly generated colors to look right. So I'm using the HSLuv colorspace and.. uh.. are some HSLuv implementations worse than others??
I do not attest that the luminance or saturation of the yellow user is perceptibly the same as the luminance or saturation of the pink user!

Looking at the subscriber-only Astral Codex Ten comment section

In new zealand, we don't have snow on christmas, we have pohutokawa fluff

I'm looking for a new phone and it's not really going well.

This might have something to do with why the Fairphone 3 opted not to use OLED. If you want to make a phone that ages gracefully, LCD might be the only option

(micro LED is coming, but it's still years out)

Very special spiced oil (ingredients: refined avocado oil, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, anise, sichuan peppercorns, onion, salt, flavor enhancer 621)
The stuff I prepare for myself usually has chili in it, so this will probably be a gift. I will miss it. It's kind of amazing. I don't know why it turned out black.

I'm sort of obsessed with non-destructive construction aesthetic. No nails, no glues, everything connected with bolts and clamps and joinery, no wire ever laid in a place you wont be able to reach later, nothing permanent, everything renegotiable.

Follow these principles and experimentation will have no material costs.

I don't know how practical it is, but I was raised on Lego and Data and an edict of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and so I do not know if I can live well any other way, I just need it

How I might solve witching lands' unique statekeeping problem

the deck would often need to be kept divided in odd ways that would change frequently between sessions as a coven progressed through the game

If we had a big shared permissioned graph database, how powerful and concise could we make a language for specifying views or user interfaces over it?

I think this kind of system has the potential to be *really really good*, the web should have been like this, but the HTML + JS clownshow wont ever get there, it moves too slow. We could outrun it.

While scrounging for plain black sweatshirt recommendations (still looking), I decided to check in on our aesthetic cousins, lot2046, known for their standard issue minimal industrialgoth subscription service.

Found a lot of baffling shit that deserves a complete discussion rather than a side-eye from someone who doesn't know them very well, although one thing that I would like to report is that they are trying to make this trailer home thing and it cute.

Maybe I should make Witching Lands' cards bigger. They're adorable like this but inherently annoying to handle (shuffling in any usual way is basically impossible) and trying to fit unambiguous visual explanations of the spells onto them is causing me a lot of suffering.

Even the land cards may kind of need to be bigger to make it clear that everyone can crowd into the same tile at once (if they want to)

We've been growing this en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetragon

A common creeping fuzz-leafed plant, Kōkihi is generally not eaten by any pest insects. It needs to be boiled to reduce its oxalate content.

It is native to japan and new zealand.

For a bit I was thinking of giving Crycog a text adventure component, but I decided that two layers of overworld was too many.
I can imagine going back to this, but feature creep is how I died last time so I'll avoid it for now.

This log is was inoculated with plugs of shiitake spores about 5 months ago, and the damp season has just begun cc::
I feel its spirits humming, preparing to emerge

Considering making a minimal wargame to explore the effects of information assymetries

Dark Sauce. A pasta sauce made with a bunch of spirulina. One of the best applications of spirulina that I've found so far.
