pronounced_ing Elon Musk saying "I'll make ventilators IF there's a shortage" is like your partner looking at you holding a screaming baby, in front of a stove, with a sink full of dirty dishes, and saying "Of course I'm here to help you IF you need it" as he walks off to play video games.

AlexHardwick95 THREAD: In the last few days, my timeline and inbox have been filled with suggestions. Online/remote teaching/recording platforms. Shared collections of PDFs, remote-accessible library collections.

mjpost we talk about "breaking out of your bubble" and "reaching across the aisle", but if you use "src/tgt" instead of "src/trg", I'm not sure what there is to say to you

yEvb0 @VerbingNouns Conferences are still* a very delicate walk for me between "I'm so inspired! I'll renew my effort!" and "I'm so intimidated! I should quit now!"

*when I was a great student I was intimidated by the profs; now I'm intimidated by the grad students

_noujoum Nach 5 Tagen Home Office ist das der am häufigsten wiederholte Dialog bei uns:

Ich: "Stört es Dich wenn ich...[Klavier spiele/telefoniere/Holz hacke/ein Schiff vom Stapel lasse]?"

Er (schaut verständnislos): "Ich bin in einem Großraumbüro groß geworden. Mich stört GAR NICHTS"

wellformedness I think it would be nice to have a term that allowed us to distinguish between politely asking that we preserve existing useful lexical distinctions and full-blown ideologically-driven prescriptivism (wellformedness.com/blog/not-presc…)

primamuslima Burka oder Niqab war für viele hier das schlimmste auf der Welt, hat so viele Menschen beschäftigt und belastet. Und jetzt wo da ist, ist es doch nicht so schlimm, wenn man das Gesicht eines Menschen nicht sieht. So lange es nichts mit dem Islam zu tun hat ist alles ok.

primamuslima Mag jetzt blöd klingen, aber was mich echt anpisst ist, die Zahl der Muslime, die ihren Job verloren haben oder angefeindet wurden, weil sie jemandem die Hand nicht geben wollten. Und jetzt ist es wegen natürlich plötzlich super legitim und okay.

zeitweise Ob die Leute sich weiter treffen, ist doch oft gar keine individuelle Entscheidung, sondern hat viel mit sozialem Druck zu tun. Ist halt ein großer Unterschied, ob das soziale Umfeld sagt: Bist du irre, dass du dir alles verbieten lässt? oder Bist du irre, dass du rausgehst?

megantiu Things I have done while attending the virtual this week:

* Washed dishes
* Folded laundry
* Cooked dinner
* Cuddled my dogs

Remote conferences are better than I could've imagined! Allows me to keep my hands busy while my mind engaged.
