berndulrich Und für die elektrischen der Reichen braucht man dann wieder jede Menge Windräder, die man den Menschen auf dem Land vor die Nase setzt, die dafür dann Rad fahrende Hipster hassen. Ist das diese berühmte ökologische Kreislaufwirtschaft? twitter.com/larsweisbrod/s…

charlubby i remember seeing a post that said “if you work in the service industry you should be legally allowed to fight a customer once a year” let’s up that to once a month

wayfu i just realized that the phrasing "how someone looks" is a sneaky device for shifting responsibility. they don't "look" or do anything really. WE look, yet THEY get the active voice.

brynguist them: how are you doing?

me, in my head: last night I dreamed that I was writing an endless cover letter to apply for the position of Sleeping and the stress of writing paragraph after paragraph about why I deserve to sleep kept waking me up

me, out loud: fine, busy

StefanMuelller 3. Kann man nicht ausrechnen, wie groß der Placebo-Nutzen ist und dann die Erstattungen für Zuckerkügelchen dort deckeln?
4. Es geht wahrscheinlich eher darum, dass jemand mal Zeit hat und dann Zuwendung in Form von Zuckerkügelchen verteilt. 2/2

geeky_bhavani You don't have to do ML.

We all like two things about @spacy_io
1. Building NLP models easily
2. Visualize complex NLP topics using their visualization tools.

Every ML problem needs a cool frontend person who can express it to the users.

Herr_Rau Will ja nichts vorschreiben, aber eigentlich doch, auch bei Diskussionen am Schultresen, deshalb Faustregel: Ersetze "alle" durch "viele", "keine" durch "wenige", "wahrscheinlich" durch "vielleicht", dann kann man besser mit mir reden. Aber muss ja niemand.

sarahshulist 8 yo explained to 4 yo that a vowel is a letter than can make more than one sound, so 4 yo said c must be a vowel. He wants me to explain why it’s not and I’m like “well it can’t be the nucleus of a syllable”. Husband is cracking up bc I can’t figure out the non linguist answer.

sarahshulist @qpheevr @ErikaAlpert Right, I mean at the core I want to dig in to how letters aren’t sounds, but both of them are going to flip their shit if I get in to that. We save the real critical stuff for contradicting everything grandma tells them about what boys and girls are like

qpheevr @sarahshulist @ErikaAlpert Indeed! I just don’t think it’s possible to come up with a definition for the non-linguistic meaning that a bright four-year-old couldn’t poke holes in, so you might as well just say, “For the purposes of school, ‘vowel’ is a name for this arbitrary set of graphemes.”

sarahshulist @ErikaAlpert @qpheevr I mean I know the truth. I just also know my extremely anxious 8 year old is not ready for this argument with his teachers yet. I have to consider age appropriate linguistics lessons
