The ancient Greek had steam engines. They used them to power amusing automatons.

In Mesoamerica, they didn't use carts or chariots. No wheels. But children toys had wheels on them.

In ancient China they knew gunpowder. It was used only for fireworks.

The inventions don't have to change the world for the worse, it's up to us how we use them.

Also present some thoughts on how to revitalise coop organising by campaigning in credit union, mutual insurance and pension fund board and trustee elections to get them to redirect their massive pools of capitals into funding new coops, especially in the tech sector.

Museums are finding it nearly impossible to post imagery containing artistic nudity on social media because their posts keep getting deleted and accounts suspended or banned, so Vienna's museums opened a page on OnlyFans.

Facebook ruled the 25,000 year old Venus of Willendorf figurine as pornographic and removed the post.
