Spent great day with Sasha-feather

Made beet root/sweet potato/kale/onion chicken curry soup with yogurt. So tasty i got to eat the whole pot!

Watched a delightful educational video on YouTube. I'm on mobile so I can't embed*
But the animation is stellar, the narration Oh So British, the captions excellent, and I actually learned something!

Also finished a six-hour BET/CBC coproduction "The Book of Negroes." Watch for free on the CBC site if you're in Canada; currently on HULU in the US. Beautifully filmed. More on the substance anon.

Revised my site style/layout -- again.

*That is, YT won't offer the full embed code, even when I request desktop site. is there a trick I'm missing?

I love the Kurzgesagt channel -- been subscribed to them for a couple of years, I think...

And I think they're actually German -- even though the Narration has a British accent.

I was actually going to post about this video, in which they describe their actual philosophy; they call it "Optimistic Nihilism," but it's actually (and it's actually?) a point for point line up with the original version of Epicureanism, which is as close as I can say is my personal favorite:

(Epicurus and his followers pointed out specifically, though: It really is impossible to have a happy, peaceful, life if you are unjust to others, though).

*And I don't think you're missing anything. I've seen comments from others that say: "can't embed; on mobile," and no one's replied with: "here's the trick."
