"always outnumbered, never outgunned" is my combat robot girl gender
we learned an interesting thing today: apparently the reason it's common for non-native english speakers to use "sth" to mean "something", and vanishingly rare for native english speakers to do so, is because the abbreviation is used by native speakers almost exclusively in *dictionaries*, which non-native speakers use very frequently and native speakers much less frequently
the reason it's used in dictionaries is purely space constraints. print dictionaries are Big.
Something I think a lot about: in aviation, if you're landing through fog (or whatever), the standard practice is to pick ahead of time a hard limit for the altitude at which you'll do a go-around. If you don't see the runway by the time that altitude is reached, you abort the landing attempt -- no questions.
Because otherwise folks tend to keep going "I'll just give it another few seconds..." until they're way too low for safety.
This type of protocol is very, very generalizable to everyday life, and can make decision-making a lot easier.
