@Jimothy
The reasons that I hate harems are as follow:
1. It is an overused trope. Every other YA fantasy that I read that is not an edgy self insert torture p*rno is a harem novel. I could use some air over here.
2. It is usually used to cover up a lack of skill. Which means that the characters are all as flat as cardboard.(metaphor[obviously])
3. Even if the characters aren't all stupid, they are. This is because all the women usually are all competing for something that will never happen. They know that nothing will happen, and yet they still compete for the desert that is the mc's libido.
There is another reason, but that is merely my personal bias against it. I have begun to associate harems with poor quality work. You must forgive me, but I cannot allow a harem mc to exist on this planet. Goodbye.

But y'know what? While we're on the subject...

1. how much edgy self-insert torture porn do you read on a daily basis
2. Monogatari
3. Monogatari
There is another reason, and it's the Monogatari series.

There are almost always exceptions to rules.

Well, since you insist, I shall inform you of the motive for my actions.
1 It was funnier because it was oddly specific.
2 The "and he was never seen alive again" would not work with anyone else. Except maybe marken... but Nah.
3 I wouldn't be able to use the following pun.
4 You had too much chemistry with all those women.

according to Wikipedia, yeast is a leavening agent (meaning it adds bubbles to the bread), however it is possible to have unleavened bread, and it is possible to have chemically leavened bread.
cake is bread.
It's also possible to have yeast-leavened cake!

I'm going to play stellaris as a determined exterminator. Again. This is because I had butter bread.

Who wants to hear me rant about astronomy and also journalism? Nobody? Cool.

So dearest @Jukarein whom I apparently can't tag for some reason, sent me this article:
Giant Comet Bernardinelli-Bernstein is bigger than a Martian moon

The first thing I want to point out is how much I absolutely hate this sentence

Beefy deep.... 😭

But anyway. MARS HAS TINY, DINKY-ASS, BABY MOONS. I do not consider being bigger than them to be impressive.
Now, to be fair, the article does make a comparison to Hale-Bopp and this comet does seem to actually be pretty big. But my god, the choice to compare it to Mars' moons just irks me.

Earth has kind of a stupidly large moon, and so I imagine the average person would think that Mars has moons that would be comparable to ours. BUT NOPE!!!!!! They 're just captured asteroids. They're astronomically DINKY.
Now also the "nearly spherical" part of the aforementioned sentence is pretty significant. Generally speaking an object needs a certain amount of mass to become spherical in space. (Which Mars' moons DO NOT!!!)

Here's pictures of Phobos and Deimos eclipsing the sun from the Martian surface.



Again, to be fair, there is something to be said about how distance affects relative size in the sky blah blah blah. We just so happen to be wonderfully blessed on Earth that our moon is just the right size and distance that it appears to be the same size in our sky as the sun, giving us breathtakingly beautiful solar eclipses. BUT STILL. I mean, Mars is farther than the Earth so the sun is gonna look smaller in the Martian sky y'know.....




Like please god just look at how tiny Phobos and Deimos are. LOOK AT HOW MUCH BIGGER PLUTO'S "MOON" CHARON IS. (I use quotation marks because I personally prefer to think of Pluto-Charon as a double planet system, but I digress.) It's a bajillion times bigger than them!! They're so tiny I want to bully them into giving me lunch money. I want to punt them like a football.

I'm gonna venture to a contentious and political topic, but...

Do you happen to agree with me that Pluto IS in fact a planet?

I am so happy you ask that because Moon is actually the name of our.... natural satellite. (Excluding difference in languages obviously, like Luna.) That's what "moons" are, they are natural satellites but colloquially referred to as moons. Which to be fair is a lot shorter and easier to say/type.

In the same way you might, although less commonly, hear stars from other systems be called "suns" when in fact Sun is just the name of our star (excluding for languages again.... like Sol). I can't say how common this mixing of terms would be in other languages though.

To be honest I actually couldn't care less about if it is called a planet or a dwarf planet. I care way more for the disrespect that Charon gets. Although I was looking into it after talking with a friend on discord and it does seem like Charon is called like "binary companion" or referring to them as a double dwarf planet and that makes me HAPPY.

Pluto and Charon are shockingly close in size for a planet and its "moon," they are tidally locked to each other, AND the center point of gravity between the two of them is inbetween them both!! So it's just the fact it is considered and something different from Pluto that bugs me... LOL.

Here's how I see it. Pluto is Pluto. It doesn't matter if we call it a planet, a dwarf planet, or change it's name to Goofy or Mickey instead. It just exists like it does, and all that changes are the parameters we puny humans use for classification. And the only thing, to the best of my knowledge, that changes it's classification is that is hasn't cleared its orbit (it crosses Neptune's) but otherwise should meet the criteria. Maybe it's weird I care so much about the Charon thing rather than the planet thing.

Like when Ceres was first discovered it was called a planet, then for a long time it was called an asteroid, and now it's been defined as a dwarf planet alongside Pluto (and others).

HOWEVER the vote about changing it was pretty bogus so I'm also on board if it ever gets repealed.
