This is the semimonthly open thread. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever. Also:
1. Comment of the week is queenshulamit on Pope Francis being a tricksy Jesuit
2. I’m interested in switching this blog to a two-sidebar design kind of like Popehat so I can have more links. I can’t do the CSS myself. If anyone thinks they can help, let me know. [EDIT: Already have offers, no more necessary, thanks]
Please steer the open thread away from the five toxic topics that mindkill SSC readers: race, gender, doge, one-tailed t-tests, and cuddling.
