Unicorns would have a serious size advantage, with a horn longer than both of Zuniceratops' combined. Dinosaurs pound for pound would be generally stronger than modern mammals, but this wouldn't be enough to make up for the unicorn's greater girth. One might mistakenly think
the unicorn's horn would potentially snap on a Zuniceratop's frill if these two locked horns. However, unlike the frill of a Triceratops, Zuniceratops frills has holes in them, where skin would only be found while the animals were still alive.

Good morning, bbs. After thoughtfully reading your suggestions, I’ve officially decided to name this unicorn bottle hugger toy Mx. Taffeta Champagne Sparkles—Taffy if ya nasty. Mx. Sparkles uses she/her or they/them pronouns & enjoys clinging to things to bring joy to the world.
Keep an eye out for my “adventures” with Taffy this academic year as I go up for tenure & write my second book while on fellowship leave. I anticipate having many days where Mx. Sparkles is the only being I interact with all day. 🙃 #unicorn #AmWriting #ThingsIDoToAmuseMyself
You can follow Taffy on @instagram now: taffetachampagnesparkles. You’re welcome.

Last weekend my partner found this #unicorn “wine bottle hugger” on clearance for $7. This lil buddy now hugs whatever water bottle I’m drinking out of & brings me repeated giggles whenever I look at it. Truly, one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. 😂🦄😂
How does it work you may wonder? Oh, the arms/legs are SNAP BRACELETS. So you can also make it look like this:
Now taking suggestions for naming this unicorn, who is now my fellowship year, work-from-home, accountability partner.

I think I bought a good 65% of all unicorn items available at every store within 5 miles of my house for my party on Saturday. I only stopped because, well, money. But look at this little buddy I got for the pool!
And these unicorn glow stick wands!

So after the @UKGamesExpo The Game Shop: Aldershot took a few of our pre-release kits off our hands and we said goodbye to our Iconic Pink bag as it went off to find new adventures. Clearly we need a new demo piece so I thought I’d do a Tweet along...

The D20 I’m going to build today is one of our ‘Unicorn Blood’ kits. This colour is still currently locked on the #Kickstarter but when we get to 1500% or £15k this high spectrum glitter effect will be available in the pledge manager at the end.
#rainbow #unicorn #glitter #diy
So to start off I’ve laid out my pieces in the same pattern as the diagram in the kit, if you have a kit with numbers having a D20 to hand can help you put everything in the right places. Then I’ve got one eyelet piece and one other and tied a standard knot.

Open Banking Thread 1/15

CBPII, The Bastard Stepchild of Open Banking

#openbanking #fintech #cbpii #unicorn
So everyone knows about Account Information Service Providers (AISPs), like @getyolt and @emma_finance

And may be aware of Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs), firms that can make payments.

But there's another permission:
Card Based Payment Instrument Issuers (CBPII)
CBPIIs are a rare beast. I've actually never met one. According to @UKOpenBanking there aren't any in the UK, but recently i heard from @TheFCA that they do exist (But they couldn't give any details to protect the confidentiality) of the firm involved.
