Just wow, seriously wow, this looks like a labour of love, or the mad shinangians of a bunch of engineering students. Beyond my skill to make, but I suspect +Colin Peart and the Ents would be able to pull something off.

I had a provocative discussion yesterday about a tendency for some folk to make their reason d'être to seek to be offended. I didn't strongly support, nor refute their position, because it certainly feels symptomatic of a lot of the discourse online these days. In that vein, the notion of a trigger warning seems pertinent, almost as a "prepare to be offended," more than a "avoid this to not be offended." I'm reminded of a satire headline I saw implying that an Ivy League university was abolishing grades below B+ because they were a trigger for low achieving students.

This article is a much more thoughtful, and nuanced exploration of the topic, and while long form, a suburb read.
