"Cryptocurrency proponents often invoke the “freedom” that we will supposedly gain by decoupling currency from the state. Yet of the various organs of government, I, personally, am much more likely to have my freedom unjustly impinged upon by the County Sheriff than the County Recorder of Deeds. This is true for all of us who did not luck into fortune, yet it’s the inverse for the Peter Thiels of the world. Whose freedom are they talking about?"

I made a lil N-gram-based phrase generator in ! You can check it out here: lambein.xyz/phrase-generator/

A few samples, based on a LOTR dataset:

- Isles Of Bow-Helm's Doom
- Mount Door
- Gondon
- Durin's Tower Of Durin's House Of The East Farth

If you try it out, share with me your favourite samples :>

Also, if you think of a good corpus to add to it, let me know!

A big thing that's been stopping me from going vegan is that I was trying to imitate the taste of animal products, instead of accepting that it wasn't always possible.

Once I realised that, I could let go of cow milk in tea and actually enjoy oat milk tea for what it is: a different drink.

I had no problem doing that with meat, but for some reason it's been much harder with milk in tea, and with eggs.

my weird lil DAW is coming along nicely, i'm hoping to start making some music now :>

Did the first AOC in as a learning exercise. Only took me six hours 🙃
