saw this victorian era cigarette card (the brand was based in rochester) which got me thinking about tins of loose tobacco i/we got when living in blue hill maine 30 years ago this summer. remembered the green tins but didnt have anything else to go on name-wise. even after seeing the tin it took a while for the name to click into place, three castles. was good stuff though almost too moist.

#1 trending on twitter is. #RIPTwitter.
musk fired half the staff then gave an ultimatum to the rest to quit w/ 3 month severance or work your ass off indefinitely from back in the office which he also mandated. one post i just read said 75% of the remaining employees are taking the offer. possibly those on work visas cant quit. hence the dire hashtag. everyone acting like the titanic is sinking as they say their goodbyes. feels like its too big to fail but man what a clusterfuck musk unleashed. epic hubris.
i am half hoping that musks twitter implodes via mass exodus but then i think i would deprive myself of eye-rolling stories like this and the snark that accompanies it.
