There is a scene in the new Aladdin movie where princess Jasmine explains to her father that she wants to become the next sultan and he mentions that that was unheard of.
I’m not sure kids nowadays understand that he means a woman being sultan (from the context it could just as well have been an unmarried person becoming sultan, or someone that young, etc.). Or if they do then only from movies whose plot is women doing things previously reserved for men.
Am I too optimistic?
I quite like #BillieEilish music but could never add it to my music library because with its weird casing it’d just look wrong next to all other music…
Für mich machen all die Fußballbeispiele im Text voll Sinn. Aber genau deshalb würde ich mich auch nie trauen, öffentlich über Fußball zu sprechen.

#privacy is the freedom to act without being watched and thus, in a sense, to be who we really are — not who we want others to think we are. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/10/opinion/sunday/privacy-capitalism.html
Ein riesiger bürokratischer Aufwand, um 50 Franken zurückzuzahlen. Kann ich als Haushalt da auch ein Opt-Out machen (und nochmehr bürokratischen Aufwand generieren)? Zumindest solange dann der Bund meine 50 Franken nicht in neue Kampfjets investiert?

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
FAIL often, FAIL yearly.
