Here is what #saffron harvesting actually looks like.

You save the red stigmas, and once they dry, you keep them out of the light in an airtight container. The threads are considered to be 'fresh' for two years after they are harvested.

The rest goes to compost.

@null cool! I am very sporadic / binge-ish OCD when it comes to gaming; I do like early access / beta type things.

@georgia I don't know where I heard it originally, but I like to joke with Apple fans, and ask them a riddle:

Q: "Apple released a 30-watt, 40-watt, and 50-watt charger for the new i(Pad|Phone|Thing). Which is the best one to get?"

A: "The latest version of each."

I remember reading a great article talking about how around the late 2000s there was a huge shift away from user generated content towards curation, central control and suspicion of emergent online communities. In 2006, Time magazine person of the year was "you" referring to the explosion of youtube and the normie internet and how great it was that normal people could communicate with each other easily. it was the same year that Google bought Youtube. it's amazing to think that the general elite consensus back then was that it was a good thing to give the masses access to this. then year by year we see these little problems cropping up, you notice journalists telling people to "not read below the line" referring to how toxic comments sections can become, the narrative of "trolls" ruining people's lives was even being pushed as far back as that old Fox11 video about Anonymous. it is absolutely insane to comprehend the level of freedom people used to have on twitter back in 2009. you could make any account with any email and post anything at all. now you get warned for typing the wrong thing and all trends are controlled by information authorities to create necessary "context". entire sites are purged from the internet etc.
