same goes for walls and floors with bloodsplatter or vomit on them.
even worse are smoothed floors for seasonal waterbearing ducts, which will always be covered in fresh soil no matter how often you clean them - also you'll always have to keep them either dry and cleaned or filled with water to prevent tree growth.

I haven't tested it yet, but a way to restore some symmetry to the legendary dining hall might be to obsidianize the whole space and dig it out again.  Though it is certainly an elaborate undertaking, you might find some other good uses for magma once you've gotten it to that area.  So it could piggy back on another project. 

I make too many mistakes to achieve symmetry on a reliable basis, so I just sigh when stuff like that happens and make a mental note for the next time.  But magma solves pretty much everything.

Skimming through various DF-related resources over the last few weeks, I somehow had the feeling that magma would be a, if not the preferred, solution to the problem (any problem).

Dwarves apparently prefer magma-chute dump zones to atom-smasher dump zones. Indeed, they prefer them so wholeheartedly that if you have a single magma-chute dump zone in your fortress, they will never again use any other dump zone, even if it means hauling that soon-to-reanimate corpse a several-days journey down to the magma sea, rather than hauling it 5 steps to the atom-smasher.

Tip if it's becoming annoying, it's the fall. Setting it up besides a pit makes it more attractive for some reason.

They like seeing their foes' corpses decomposing in midair; and who can fault them?

Soldiers with equipment set to 'replace uniform' will drop all their civilian gear when they go on duty. This includes jewelry. This is good because after the ownership decays they can get a good thought by re-acquiring it. This is bad if they drop stuff outside the fort and then a troupe of rhesus macaques steals half a dozen masterwork earrings.

Leopard people will wear little leopard-size socks and shoes... on their hands.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Tiny little kitty booties
On their hands
This is just the most adorable thing
I am so happy right now

Their "paws" are their feet, I think. If you look closely, you'll see that their actual hands have regular gloves and mittens.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

Oh. ...Oh.
That's... disappointing.  :-\

But tiny little leopard mittens are still adorable
That is a legitimate finding

On a separate note, while exploring a dark fortress I noticed that trolls aren't deterred from wearing troll-fur clothing. Goblin civilization truly is depraved.

I don't think the definition of 'depraved' is 'wearing clothes'.

Depraved being wearing the skin of your kind as clothing

They shave the trolls like sheep to get their fur, its not a pelt.
Its just like giving a sheep a wool sweater.
Skin would be troll leather clothing, which I don't think goblins have but I could be wrong.

Ah, I don’t know how trolls work. Thank you
