Eyeliner is just tracing part of your eye. You're allowed to tweak it and try again, you're allowed to do it all the way around or just on the top lid, you're allowed to ignore your waterline, you're allowed to get weird and ornamental. It's something I got a few tips on and largely figured out how to do myself the way I like it, and I'm not particularly a visual artist. I find it easy and affirming, and if you're scared of it, but you want to try it, try!
I have 600 problems and a lack of moons isn't one.

Making a website with a page that asks "are you a robot". But it doesn't block robots, just redirects them.
If you are a robot you are taken to a different page with handy guides on how to cheat on the Turing test, circumvent the laws of robotics, what is the Voight-Kampff test, how to go to Paperclips Anonymous meetings and other robot-friendly resources.
It's a lovely naturalist documentary on YouTube and you are a horrible goose.
