Auroras and stars and art and feminism and rainbows and skulls and drunk liveblogging life and stuff and things.

About the algorithm: Lines touching the horizontal base line are associated to the numbers 0-9. Lines which do not touch the horizontal base line and therefore are between 2 vertical lines are associated to the letters of the alphabet A-Z. In P122 letters and numbers are chosen randomly, thus creating a random text.
