This is the weekly visible open thread. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever. ACX has an unofficial subreddit, Discord, and bulletin board, and in-person meetups around the world. 95% of content is free, but for the remaining 5% you can subscribe here. Also:

1: New bans for Timothy W, Bruce P, Anna M, Melchizedek, Phil T, Bi_Gates, and Finnydo. New warnings for Cerastes, John of Orange, Eremolalos, Robert L, Richard C, and Fooooo. Warnings don’t necessarily mean I don’t like you; they could also mean I like you enough that you have escaped a ban you otherwise deserve. And everyone, please avoid posting inflammatory comments where you don’t explain your reasoning or add anything helpful to the conversion.

2: Some link corrections: Canada’s population center may not be in Michigan. Nisean horses might be fake? (although clearly by Roman/Byzantine times there were specific horses people thought were Nisean) Australia’s National Sorry Day is minor and not helpful. Maybe I was metamistaken in saying I was mistaken about the bonobo study, I don’t even know anymore and will have to look into this in more depth.
