"But any attempt to simulate an economy risks also simulating economics, which is what we call it when millions of individual, rational decisions act together to create utter madness on a grand scale. Now, unfortunately, economics has happened to Planet Zoo."
It's Hour 5 of my #GreatNanoWrimoPromptCall Toot-a-thon!
I seem to spend a lot of my stories with people looking up information: in Edally Academy, they spend most of a book in the Library trying to find a hidden treaty. In Aunt Family (as I mentioned), they spend a lot of time reading the diaries of old Aunts for family History.
And then there is Science!, a mad-science setting where they have several facilities aimed at discovering new things (human-plant hybrids, for one).
Every -thon does better with premium content (no tote bags, sorry), so I’m going to post hourly #MicroFic from my TootPlanet series/universe, named for my home instance, https://tootplanet.space/about. I'll use the hashtag #GNPC
(These are in the form of Captain's & Explorers' logs)
AND if you ask a question or pose an action the logs could reflect, I will post a toot of fic in answer.
You may get written into the universe so feel free to create a TootplanetFic persona😉

I had a question about #Knitting I learned about the Norwegian Purl (which sounds like something I want to learn as a continental) but it raised the question do Norwegians knit the regular continental way, or is there a "Norwegian Knit" that no one talks about?
Here's the video by the way
Sometimes it's good to hoard art supplies and rarely ever throw anything out.
I have some big format paper I probably haven't used any off in the last 7 years. Yesterday it meant I had a piece of paper big enough to trace my favourite long-sleeves T-shirt (folded in half) to try to make a pattern for sewing.
All right, trying again, but better!
If anyone is in the market for a house, or wants to pool together with some other people for a house, in the $200-300k range: my parents need to sell theirs. Southern NYS.
The house is two story, 4 bedroom, has its own well, 14 acres (mostly trees, a few swampy areas), 10min drive minimum to things, no public transit.
As the home I grew up in, I want it to go to people, not developers.
If you are at all interested, DM me with your questions!
Here it is, high res print-ready PDF for you to download, print, and colour <3
Done! Going to scan it like this for a colouring page, then colour it myself (there will be gold ink involved!) #MastoArt
