A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

Act accordingly.

If someone criticizes you for sharing PDFs as "taking money away from people" that isn't true. Now, people downloading PDFs can be good for a person to show that their article is being used and whatnot.
All journals should be free. That's not on you.

Sci-hub and share away.

The story I am going to imagine is that archaeologists have been searching for the cat glyph for years based on the knowledge that if people went through alllll this work to create giant pictures of animals one of the first they would make is one of a cat.

"The dun sands of southern Peru, etched centuries ago with geoglyphs of a hummingbird, a monkey, an orca – and a figure some would dearly love to believe is an astronaut – have now revealed the form of an enormous cat lounging across a desert hillside.
The feline Nazca line, dated to between 200BC and 100BC, emerged during work to improve access to one of the hills that provides a natural vantage point from which many of the designs can be seen."

Queer behaviour is observed by biologists in every major animal group in every geographic region on Earth, and has been observed by humans for over 2000 years. No animal species has been conclusively shown not to have any queer behaviours.

Science has shown repeatedly that queer is normal in this world. It's homophobia, transphobia, and anti-queer bigotry which are unnatural.
