Also according to Wikipedia, the name for Bonobos (formally known as Pygmy Chimpanzees despite being a seperate species) comes from a mispelling. [0]

[0] "The name is thought to be a misspelling on a shipping crate from the town of Bolobo on the Congo River near the location from which the first bonobo specimens were collected in the 1920s." en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonobo

TIL that axolotl are neotenic.[0] There are rare instancea of axolotl going through metamorphosis to become terrestrial. However, if this occurs after sexual maturity the axolotl will not survive more than one or two years.[1]

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
