"You fought well," the God of War said, "but it's time for judgement."
"If I fought well," the dying warrior said, "can you postpone it?"
"I could lock your soul into your sword."
"Could you lock it into my scabbard?"
"That's... Uh..."
"I'd like to protect something for once.'

"I can't believe you're reading fairytales."
"Why not? They're fun, and-"
"They're for children!"
"Well, yes, but not only for children."
"Full of clichés, and trite messages about being kind."
"I can tell you don't read fairytales."
"Obviously."
"Obviously."

Linux running on RISC-V on MNT RKX7! A completely* open computer down to the CPU gateware.

* the only wart is that it needs Vivado's synthesize/place+route tools to build the gateware source for Kintex-7

The Dark Lord is slain.
Your companions slap your back while you watch his blood trickle down your blade.
"Congratulations," your best friend says. "What will be your title?"
"None."
"What do you mean?"

"Not take over? Why?"
"Nobody's tried it."

My son came home with 'Rainbow Biscuits' he made a school. They look like normal biscuits and he doesn't seem to know why they are called 'Rainbow'. I hope the teacher hasn't laced them with LSD.

The wind doesn't mind,
But does the soil?

Let us give it our leaves,
Like a blanket,
To show our love.
