This is the twice-weekly hidden open thread. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever.
I’m experimenting with a policy of keeping alternating Sundays’ Open Thread (ie the X.5 thread) culture-war-free. Please avoid any discussion of race, gender, tribalism, free speech, object-level politics, et cetera out of this thread (you can discuss the policy itself if you want). You can discuss culture war topics on the next thread starting Wednesday.
