for those wondering how to establish trade relations with crows:
- feed crows food A regularly
- when crows decide to bring you gifts, feed them food B
- when crows bring you different categories of gifts, feed them a food-per-category, ex: food C for jewelry, food D for paper money, etc
- crows will recognize these exchange patterns and opt to bring you things in order to acquire desired treats
good luck! 🐦

Instead of generating a layout using something like PHP, I have a bunch of extremely simple HTML files, and they all include a JS file named global.js which adds layout elements *around* this extremely simple page to complete it. That JS file is also what inserts stuff like page visit counters and any other widgets that are on every page.

weird question time. say I wanted to eat some paper for a weird art project—just very small slips of it, maybe once a day for a few weeks. is there paper I can easily buy that isn't toxic and won't be bad for me? (I would also be writing stuff on the paper, so it needs to be able to take marks from a pencil, I guess, or a pen? but then I need to worry about safe/non-toxic inks too)
@dredmorbius well, they didn't call their company 'Startled Exclamation of Happiness and Delight' did they
gjm11 details just how ghastly the company's practices are. I'd had similar experiences a few days prior, hadn't written of them yet.
