How fast fashion and used clothes are adding to our environmental disaster
Shoutout to AxeMan808 for bringing this to my attention on our Chatty. I might take some my old and ill-fitting clothes to a tailor or something to get them repaired and fitted. I don't want to be a part of this problem.
Hitman 3 gets a new elusive target
Players can hunt down The Procurers in Dartmoor. You'll be tracking down and taking out Jack Roe and Robert Burk. This new addition is part of the Gluttony update as part of the Seven Deadly Sins. Read more about your targets over on the Hitman 3 site.
Aw, thank you
I made this one that's based on a meme, and then a friend requested one for his co-worker. pic.twitter.com/7r47bxzfGQ— Stitching Kitten (@StitchingKitten) September 4, 2021

Make sure those pawns get in and out as fast as possible. Keep a knight nearby to keep them in-line.
Cute kitty drawings
What an adorable kitten! This artist really captures the sweetness.
Solar power on Chinese mountains

These are the lengths we must now go to, covering mountains in solar panels.

Here's a photo of Rad lounging around. It's spring time over here so it's starting to heat up. He'll miss his pillow forts in summer.

I'm not sure that covering the planet in solar panels is the right thing to do either. Not with current technology.
There's plenty of land for solar. Plus rooftops.
I know there is plenty of land but what is the environmental impact is you start covering mountains at the scale China is doing?
Sure, but it should be done thoughtfully: https://www.vox.com/2021/8/18/22556193/solar-energy-biodiversity-birds-pollinator-land
