Just listening to this now while studying for my exams. Don't have anything smart or insightful to say, other than the fact that I really like it and that it just fits my evening mood somehow. Made of Meat is my personal favourite so far.

Thanks for the correction! And yeah, the 2017 number seems low, but the year is far from over.

Realized I was going back and forth trying to see how the numbers changed throughout the years, so I made a little hurricane count graph:

The Old Church Slavonic is also a little strange, but since I can still read it that shouldn't be a problem. It's great that you are learning Coptic! I would love to learn Hebrew and Aramaic to study things like the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as Greek to compare the differences between the NT translations and map it all a little closer to the source... but that might be just a dream at this point. The field is not exactly the most viable career path at the moment, or that's what I hear.

This looks beautiful, I would love to use the fonts he/she uses!

I was raised Christian, and history of religion is something I am still very much interested in - thus I have more than a couple Bibles around the house in different translations and versions. I will be keeping a close eye on this, thanks for posting.

Late to the party, and I don't usually post here, but here goes.

I've been in a long-distance relationship for about four years now, and I think it's coming to an end. My girlfriend has been hanging out with some of my old friends lately, friends I made before I moved away across the world, and one of them in particular has been more present in her life than the others. Two days ago he told her he loved her, ever since he met her the first time. Today I had a very long, very abrasive conversation with my girlfriend over Skype, and I am now beginning to understand that the emotional distance that appeared between us in these last few weeks was probably not altogether due to her increased workload, but perhaps something else entirely. No, I do not think they have been sleeping together, but I was now told that what we have now is not working, and that she needs other people in her life.

She is probably right, but that's not making it any easier.

Welcome, good to have you here! Hope you stick around, judging by your other comments you have some interesting stuff to say.

Studying engineering in Canada means that you will use both the imperial and the metric system pretty much arbitrarily. If during first year they at least pretended like the metric system was the one they were sticking with, as time went by I realized that we have been tricked with no hopes of escape.

I actually have a list of browsers that I just kind of switch between over the course of the year:

Brave is one of them, but, like Devac, I am not a huge fan of being unable to modify it to my liking. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the business model - every time I try to fully understand how they will distribute the money to the website owners, it seems convoluted.

Yeah, this is actually pretty hilarious. ( Sorry for being called an idiot, mk, but I'm glad the system you've put in place is pissing some spammers off).

OK, so Kraken is a no-go, but is there a suitable alternative that is slightly more reliable?

I followed the protests throughout yesterday, mostly via several Telegram channels and Twitter. Here are some photos from Moscow, St. Petersburg, and other cities across the country.
