This surgeon got inspired by The Terminator to study and revolutionize "osseointegration" where bones and titanium are fused together for better prosthetics. Someone please make him watch one of the x-men movies that shows Wolverine's origin next, thanks https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/osseointegration-surgery-amputees-limbs-iraq-australia-1.5146015
big respect for bike rack designers who had clearly never touched a bicycle but accepted the challenge anyway. Exhibit A: one in which you can only lock your bike up to the ends, and people would rather use a nearby street sign pole than even think about trying to use the rack for its apparently intended purpose.

My first semi-viral post makes me REALLY miss the feature of twitter that collapses all RT and Fave notifications into like “This person and 120 others retweeted”
The latest embarrassing tab I have permanently open in my browser is Esquire’s “The 30 Sexiest Erotic Thrillers”. It’s a surprisingly good list of films I want to see, with a bunch of queer content that I’ve never heard of and are never really highlighted as part of the genre (Cruising, Stranger by the Lake, etc). Good work, Esquire https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/movies/g12795563/sexiest-erotic-thrillers/

My mom got a puppy and it's not fair how cute it is. I need to work up the courage to ask my landlord to change the lease to allow dogs...
Fascinating photo project highlighting how wet plate collodion photography used in the 1800s literally erased traditional Māori tattoos. https://petapixel.com/2018/07/09/wet-plate-photography-makes-tattoos-disappear/

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
