Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop

it's thought the idea of cynocephaloi β€” dog-headed people β€” that had currency in antiquity and the medieval period may in part have been based on reports of baboons. and it does make sense to me that someone who sees a baboon for the first time would conclude it's basically a type of guy but worse
