I love this. When the Far Side came out in 1982, paleontologists realised they'd never actually named that part of a stegosaurus and began using the term informally. And now, 36 years later, if you type "Thagomizer" into a search engine...

I'm very pleased to announce that `furrr` 📦 has finally hit CRAN. furrr allows you to use purrr's suite of map(), map2(), pmap(), etc functions in parallel through the use of `future`. Thanks everyone for the support (100 stars on GitHub!!).
