Wow. #Opera can't make money with its web browser anymore, so it's selling predatory loans to low-income people in Africa and then sending text messages to their contacts when they don't pay. :opera:

Three Horns was a warrior.
No Moccasins was his his wife.

Three Horns lived many years.
he led great hunts;
he led great attacks.
he provided guidance to the elders.

Three Horns was an old man.
he became sick, and would die.
many came to visit; to mourn.
his village doubled in size.

Three Horns gathered the elders from the visitors.
he told them, "before I die, I'm going to tell a story."

"If one did not know there had been humans on the landscape, it would be almost impossible to detect them on a regional scale."

I literally had eco-fascists screaming the opposite at me just a week ago.
