Well, I have to come back when it's not wrapped in scaffolding... But as somebody raised episcopalian, Canterbury Cathedral isn't quite like the other churches I've been in.

As a philosopher and historian of biology, no single room has ever taken my breath away as much as this just did

not only did she find the sunbeam, that's my laptop power brick under her butt :BlobCatMelt:

crypto, Musk, just all bad things
