This is fucking weird and cool: Apparently the Ottoman Turkish soldiers back in the day had a fighting technique they could use if they lost their weapons, called the Ottoman Slap. These guys could slap hard enough to knock out a horse or kill a human being. And they did it because in their culture, punching people was what women did, and slapping was the manly thing to do.

Book 4, Chapter 5 of Harry Potter and the Trouble With Neurotypicals is published!

Series blurb: Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived, is a young and abused Black boy with Asperger's syndrome, and is hated by his guardians, the Dursleys. A little over a week before his birthday, he discovers that he is also a wizard, and the Dursleys knew all along. Not only is he a wizard, but he's also famous in the wizarding world! An AU fanfic.

"Godless" names

Ugh. Coming up with an atheist character for the Ravenstone story, and I want to give him a name meaning "godless" or something like it, because there's a fuckton of names that mean "servant of god" or "god's gift" or something similar. But I don't want it to be obvious. I even considered Ateo from Italian, and thought that might be too obvious. (But I might use it anyway if nothing better comes along.)

The character in question is a friend of the Ravenstones, but isn't part of the family by either blood or marriage. (He's unmarried.) So I'd prefer a name that looks/sounds relatively normal but I'll consider weirder names too, since, well... friends of the Ravenstones would be weird, too.

Just tried typing "pilot" and typed "polio" instead. WTF?

Oregon is in flames

The forest fires in Oregon are still going. Here in Portland, the smoke is so bad you can even see it at night! Around streetlights and other light sources mostly, but the moon - a deep blood orange color - is so obscured by haze you can barely make out the moon's face, like looking at it through frosted glass.

My roommate is fleeing for Colorado again, because the last time the forest fires were making haze just a month ago, she couldn't breathe, and it's even worse now. Even more important as a sign of how bad it's getting: even I am having trouble breathing when I go outside, and I didn't even notice any difference the last time.

We need rain! We need it so bad we're getting really close to "sacrifice a goat to the rain gods" level. I'm even tempted to pray to Eris, we need rain so badly!

(The joke there being that praying to Eris for rain will inevitably end in a flash flood, according to the Principia Discordia.)
