    Mongoose Figure | Egypt, 664–30 B.C. (Late Period or Ptolemaic Period)
  • A source: https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/544088 (currently in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY)

    During the Late Period and Ptolemaic times mongooses were represented in bronze statuettes such as this one, standing, forepaws raised, atop small bronze boxes. The pose of raised paws signifies the animal's adoration of the sun god when he rises in the morning. Some scholars have identified these animals as otters rather than mongooses.

    In myth, mongooses were particularly attached to the goddess of Lower Egypt Wadjet, whose cult was centered in Buto, in the northern Delta.

    As well, since 1945, the USSR had a spy ring within Yugoslavia and Stalin attempted to assassinate Tito several times. Stalin remarked "I will shake my little finger and there will be no more

    > > > As well, since 1945, the USSR had a spy ring within Yugoslavia[128] and Stalin attempted to assassinate Tito several times. Stalin remarked "I will shake my little finger and there will be no more Tito".[129] However, these assassinations would fail, and Tito would write back to Stalin "Stop sending people to kill me. We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle. [...] If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow, and I won't have to send a second."[130] Yugoslavia would go on to become one of the main founders and leaders the Non-Aligned Movement.[131] > >

  • Am I cheating at Wordle?
  • I compared all 15,920 words in my wordbase used as winning words with the same words used as starting words, and RATES is good. It ranked 6th in one of the modes.

    RATES - the averages for all games: 🟩 12.55% + 🟨 23.35% = 35.90%

    The first place went to:

    TARES - 🟩 13.89% + 🟨 22.02% = 35.90%

    And max green to:
    SANES -🟩14.55% + 🟨15.95% = 30.49%

  • There were some comments on Reddit suggesting that cutting the dataset at 15 and removing 40% of words was not the best move. I have locally built a version with the limit set to 30.

  • Thanks. It should read prefers-color-scheme. I have dark mode by default, but it's also possible to set dark/light mode too.

  • To clarify, it is not the total number of words but rather the number of unique words considered. Imho a million of unique words is okay. A bigger concern for me would be that words on Wikipedia can be overly specific.
