"This song is amazing! A proper broken-hearted country song, this."
"Mm. It was written by an artificial intelligence."
"Really? A song-writing AI?"
"No, an autonomous car whose owner swapped them for a newer model."

#Minetest is 10 years old! It was first released publicly on the 10/October/2010. Here's to 10 years more.

You can download the first version from here, it's a Windows executable but works well in wine: packages.8dromeda.net/minetest

When books meet, they talk about their readers.
The ones rushing through, breath caught in their throat. The ones savoring each description. The ones frowning at anachronisms and inaccuracies.
And the lost ones, who give up, who every book dreams of carrying through to the end.

She built a clockwork god and wound it up each morning. It ticked along, occasionally performing a minor miracle like reheating her forgotten tea or smiting a fly.
It wasn't much, but it was enough. Everyone needs something to believe in.
The god had faith she'd keep it wound up.

"I doubt we will ever ride," War said.
"We ride all the time," Famine said.
Pestilence nodded. "Alone, or in pairs."
"But never all of us at the same time," War said.
"We have games night instead," said Death. "To do things together."
"Fair enough," said War. "Any pizza left?"

A spaceship landed and an alien emerged.
"We are sorry," it said, its words broadcast across the world.
"The last few years we have used your planet as a refueling stop. We depleted your reserves faster than you could regenerate them."
"Reserves of what?" someone called.
"Hope."

COVID reports September 2020 

So there 😑 now go to the frontliners, the #doctors #nurses treating and caring for #COVID19 sufferers and say it to their face: the #pandemic is over. It's a hoax. It's not real. It's a lie.

While you're at it, tell your #veterans there was never a #war, there are no wars, that the rest of the world is just like your own little white picket fence town. No conflict. Tell them that #PTSD is just all in their heads.

And the moon landing...
