Dr. Dr's Page of Whatnots
Herein lies the tumblr of a Calgary to Cardiff dame. This blog has no theme. It used to. Les Mis, Sherlock, TW, Vidya Games, and whatever else strikes my fancy may find its way here.

Happy 1st of September!

i am a 5 a.m. picture of you
tossing sleep into the breeze.
and a look at dawn,
pouring its vermilion
always at a different angle.

What do french people call a really bad thursday?

As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.

But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London.

London and Its Dead

I was angry, but I think this is important…

Important to note- all you GBBO fans out there, remember that this show is heavily edited and if there was an apology we may not have seen it because BBC loves drama

I have asked this myself in the past and never gotten an answer.

Maybe today will be the day we are both finally enlightened.

"Bang paths" (! is called a "bang"when not used for emphasis) were the first addressing scheme for email, before modern automatic routing was set up. If you wanted to write a mail to the Steve here in Engineering, you just wrote "Steve" in the to: field and the computer sent it to the local account named Steve. But if it was Steve over in the physics department you wrote it to phys!Steve; the computer sent it to the "phys" computer, which sent it in turn to the Steve account. To get Steve in the Art department over at NYU, you wrote NYU!art!Steve- your computer sends it to the NYU gateway computer sends it to the "art" computer sends it to the Steve account. Etc. ("Bang"s were just chosen because they were on the keyboard, not too visually noisy, and not used for a huge lot already).

It became pretty standard jargon, as I understand, to disambiguate when writing to other humans. First phys!Steve vs the Steve right next to you, just like you were taking to the machine, then getting looser (as jargon does) to reference, say, bearded!Steve vs bald!Steve.

So I’m guessing alternate character version tags probably came from that.

FINALLY AN ANSWER

I feel like this Pumpkin is sneaking up on me.

Like I don’t know it’s waiting….
