Yeah, sure, there's no problem playing "baby it's cold outside" every christmas because "it was a product of its time" but if I go around singing "let's get a few people tied up in trees and sacrifice them to odin this midwinter solstice" which was an incredibly popular song at the time (if a lot more pithy in the original ancient norse) then I get chucked out of lidl

the 588th Night Witches were a squad of russian bomber women who earned their name Nachthexen from the nazis because they would fly by night, turn off their goddamn engines to swoop in their outdated planes (often crop-dusters), whoosh over the target making this amazing sudden "witch's broom" RRSSSSH sound and manually eject bombs on german targets. they sometimes used their chart pencils as eyeliner and did not use radios and minimal metal so they couldn't be detected. No parachutes, no nothin. fuckin' ride or die. Marina Raskova assembled and trained this all-female team of fighters, many of whom were rewarded prestigious medals and in total over thirty thousand missions were completed. Thirty pilots were lost. They were hated and feared by the nazis who would receive high honors if they could actually take down one of the Night Witches and also assumed they had been experimented on so they could see in the dark. uh sorry, douchebags. but the witches are just better than you.

this take has fully cooled by now. what once was a boiling lava hot take is now smooth, glassy obsidian. you can pick it up in your hands and hold it, and imagine the churning igneous currents deep in the earth from whence it was spawned.

Thousands of years from now, alien archeologists will be digging through the remains of human civilization. "What do you think killed them off?" "It appears to have been a 'gender reveal announcement'."

Basically, this is kind of a big deal. Radiothermal electric generators might see benefits, and there's *definitely* niche applications for solid-state heat-based electrical generation.

Frybread is often seen as a traditional native american food, but the history of our connections to frybread come from a dark place. When colonizers forced us outside of our homelands, some of us to areas where our crops would no longer grow due to the different climate, soil etc. we began to face starvation. During these times many tribes also were given food rations issued by the united states government. The paperwork was odten not enough to feed a single person let alone a family. This was meant to starve us out. But with basic ingredients, frybread was born. It was born from those rations, and quickly became a staple across many american native tribes facing starvation due to the forced rations and cutting off of game, fish and other natural food sources. Which tribe invented it is still very contentious... also fuckin hell is it delicious.
