"Uh," I said, "Like, the language of ancient Rome?"

"Yeah."

"… Kinda?" 🤨

"What's seven in Latin?"

"Uh… like, septimus is seventh, I think."

"Uh, yeah! Septum is seven, then." Then they mumbled, "seven, eight, nine…"

"OK. Oh! It's the last few months: September, October, November, December; 7, 8, 9, 10. To help remember."

"Oh cool. Thanks!"

🤷🏻‍♂️ I have no idea why they wanted to know that. They have no idea what a perfect person I am to ask such a random language question. It was wonderful.

Yesterday, as I got on the bus to go home from work, there were some kids on there growing around. Maybe 12ish?

They had skateboards and one was filming the others goofing around. When they saw me coming their way to get a seat they settled down quickly and one of them gave me a bit of a "sorry" look.

I made eye contact to communicate "it's cool" (they were being a little loud, but until I got on they weren't in anybody else's space) and the kid said, "Hey. Do you know Latin?"

“we live in a society” becomes an expression about the importance of social responsibility, rather than a lamentation about hellworld 🤡

The kids have been exposed to The Hobbit.

Me: What did you think about that ring? Would you like a magic ring like that?
4yo: Yeah!
Me: What would you do with a magic invisibility ring?
4yo: Uh… turn invisible???
Me: 🤦🏻‍♂️ What then? What would you do when invisible with a ring?
4yo: Uh… run out of jail?
Me: Wait. What are you doing in jail?!? How did you get in there? What is this narrative???

I heard that @HTHR is what Plato was talking about with his "ideal" stuff. She's not *a* hexagon, but, like, the embodiment of hexagon-ness.

Extreme Mearpunks Forever: Bound by Ash has about 5 days to raise the last $4k on Kickstarter. It's a visual novel about gay disasters who punch neo-nazis using mechs made of meat! The first season was great! The second one probably will be, too!

Go pledge! Spread the word! Punch a nazi! Pet a dog (I think)! Exclamation points! I'm very excited!

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.
