I too remember when covid hit in 2018.

Peter von Nostrand: 4 year... 🤔


It's not an annual even. As the events are every second year, and 2020 was skipped, the last one was 4 years ago.

It must have been a long 2 years for subby.

Also I love this guy:

That just means the gap was doubled. Covid didn't cause the full four year wait, just added an additional two.

My sense of time is already farked thanks to Covid upending everything. Don't try making it worse, subby!

Senegal seems like one of the most appealing countries in Africa.  Relatively stable, lots of art, and a majority Muslim country where most follow Sufism, the coolest type of Islam.

Just a four year gap?  Dakar hasn't been popular since the 80s.  Oh wait . . .

In this thread: Fark smooth brains obsess over easy-to-understand timing in a headline, rather than the cool art in the article.

Also in this thread: Smoother brain still hasn't figured out that 80% of Fark threads are all about discussing the headline and not reading TFA.

Well the reason it was a 4 year gap and not a 2 year gap is because of Covid, I suppose.

Very impressive. The least impressive was the painting by French artist Louisa Marajo, which was that abstract stuff that if you ask me, just about anyone can do. Hunter Biden comes to mind.

I started to tear up after looking at that first painting in the article. I can't explain why.

That makes sense, but calling it a "4 year covid gap" is misleading and confusing.

I also learned that Hammerschlang is a name and it's pretty cool.

Dr. Opossum: Senegal seems like one of the most appealing countries in Africa.  Relatively stable, lots of art, and a majority Muslim country where most follow Sufism, the coolest type of Islam.


Huh. Yes, I would like to know more.

There was one in 2018.
