Happy MLK Jr. Day! :)

Hey Jammers! Today is Monday, which means you have to go back to school in many other places of the world– but not me! If you live in America too, most schools take a day off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day! 

An interesting fact about MLK jr.: He encouraged the actress Nichelle Nichols to continue her role as Uhura after the first season of Star Trek. She was a very influential character! The second black American in space, Ronald McNair, was inspired to become an astronaut because of Uhura! A quote from his brother:

"Now, Star Trek showed the future where there were black folk and white folk working together. I just looked at it as science fiction, ’cause that wasn’t going to happen, really.’ But Ronald saw it as science possibility."

Representation really matters!

So I hope you have a great day off if you do have one, and if you don't, I hope you have a great day in general! :D

Now onto some more AJ related things: the Rare Item Monday!

This one is sold in the Hot Cocoa Hut on the second page, I believe. Does anyone remember the big item change, when item icons became more 3D, and consequentially more ugly? I wonder why they did that– there were literally NO people who liked the change. xD

Moving on, I've learned some interesting things about the gallery in Jammer Central that I want to tell you about:

• There's a reason why it's so hard to get to the last page of the gallery now. Yesterday I tried to count every single picture in the gallery and after ten minutes it added up to about 208 drawings.

The art in the gallery switches multiple times a day. About three times, I'm guessing. Compared to back when there was only new art every update with maybe 20 to 30 drawings, that's really... whoa. 

I guess AJHQ is trying to get as many players into the gallery as they can. If they do that it's not just exclusive for detailed and "good" art, which is thoughtful. :)

And with that, I leave you with this fox:

That's all for now, Jammers,
see you in Jamaa!
