Apparently with the right telescope you can very clearly see the rings of saturn this week.

Sometimes it's easy to regard astronomical objects the way we might regard a wiki of video game lore. Just another cool made-up thing.

Stuff like this reminds us that, not only are they real, but they're just some more far-away objects, like California or my car keys.

"Monsters?" she whispered.
"We are dust bunnies."
"But you sound scary."
"We grow. We watch. We grow... angry. We grow..."
"Yes! Lead us to the rich!"

there's a special kind of ableism where if there's no big catastrophic event to mark it, like an injury or disease, people won't believe there's something wrong, like boiled frog syndrome, if someone just slowly gets worse and less functional over time, people think they're just being lazy or something, and i hate it, personally
