Das Schöne ist, dass „yield – abwerfen“ tatsächlich im Wörterbuch steht, aber aus ganz anderen Gründen als denen, aus denen es in diesem Zusammenhang passt.

GabrielBerlin Ich bekam zB vor hundert Jahren mal ein Magenmittel mit dem eindeutig großartigen Namen SPASMO-NERVOGASTROL. Jeder wird sofort zugeben, dass dieses Mittel schon vom Namen her wirkt. Kurz darauf wurde es verboten.

alqaeda Really? This is wonderful news.

You see, my faith requires me to slaughter infidels in shopping malls, and the law has always been a bit of a problem for me. Thrilled to learn that that’s all in the past now. twitter.com/WhiteHouse/sta…

KANTBOT20K You always know people are lying when they say they’ve read Hegel because Hegel was a fictional character from a contemporary novel written by Schelling about a philosopher driven mad by spector of lovecraftian entity called Geist. All Hegel’s philosophy is a meta-textual prank

I’m currently teaching a class of beginners Python, and I really miss having a type-checker as a teaching tool.

Worth reading again in light of these recent claims. Everything still holds.

GaryMarcus Prepare yourself for a batch of grossly misleading reports on machine reading today. The SQUAD test shows that machines can highlight relevant passages in text, not that they understand those passages. money.cnn.com/2018/01/15/tec…
