this morning my husband reminded me of the time he was trying to read French Lord of the Rings and he got to the part where he translated it "the elves were dying into the west"
and he was like ...
... this is not right???
So he went to the English original and it said "the elves were passing away into the West"
and that's why it's both important to know idioms and to be cautious with them.
People will tell you that "now is not the time to be political". Thats bullshit. Now is absolutely the time. The monarchy is the figurehead institution for the idea that some people should live in privilege and rule by right whilst you simply kneel + obey. #AbolishTheMonarchy
Hot dogs were once called "dachshund sausages".

no but seriously the danger of the continued 9€-Ticket is that it is a slippery slope:
- people would buy less cars
- if we can make it 9€, we could also make it free, getting rid of the ticketing infrastructure and ticket inspection, which would save cost
- if it turns out that can provide public transportation for free, people might think what else could be done that benefits everyone and financed by everyone
- next up people will want a UBI??
- people will be harder to exploit
- less profit
web3 is about decentralization the same way radioactive toothpaste was about dental hygiene
I love open source. Information Security is important to me. I work on Icecast in my free time.
