I'm sure the scientists also told them to end temporary housing of the homeless too right? and the scientists told them to completely fail at providing frontline staff with PPE so they die. oh, and I am *sure* the scientists also told them that opening London back up so employers can force their staff to go back to work too

So the cat behaviourist said one of the most important things we need to do is let Loki go outside again. We decided today would be the day.

I checked the dictionary and yep, that's the description they used for "auspicuous" too.

so doordash does predatory pricing and opens accounts for restaurants that haven't asked for anything, reselling the food for less than they pay for it (reasoning being that right now they just burn investors' money, and when they're the only ones on the market they'll raise the prices).

The highest mountain on Earth is known as Sagarmatha (सगरमाथा) in Nepali, meaning “goddess of the sky” and Qomolangma (ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ) in Tibetan, meaning “holy mother”.

The true names of places in the world always sound much nicer than the colonial names to me.
