The surname of serial killer Aileen Wuornos has long intrigued me. I looked it up. Found a document listing her family. The name Wuornos is also listed as Wuornis, an older spelling, from Finland. I looked up wuornis. Found a PDF of mythology written in Finnish. I did translations. The word is used as the name of animal spirits which shamans employ to attack people and kill them, especially against other shamans. Aileen Wuornos' surname is an animal-demon spirit which murders people. Wow.

@Bthielen That's the short version. I had to cut it down to fit 500 characters.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
