...you know...

I'm a linguist, and have a curious turn of mind, and I never noticed that.

In thirty years of life, however many years of studying languages, I never *once* noticed that breakout.

I now feel ashamed at all of the jokes I have clearly missed out on.

Bah. The touchpad on my laptop has decided to be really sensitive. I keep going to move the mouse and it either decides to scroll, or even worse, to click on things. I've been liking things by accident (really inappropriate things to like too. That would be the way.), clicking on people's profiles, I've even almost accidentally clicked report on a few posts. I think I'm a danger to myself and everyone around.

Quantum cryptography is being used?! Like, by banks?!
Why don't people tell me this stuff... I can't keep up with this stuff. The world quietly changes behind your back, whole companies spring up selling technology based on science that was a thought experiment the previous decade. There used to be a time that knowing both the message and the password meant that you had the secret.
There needs to be a blog for this kind of stuff.

So, a couple of years ago I invented the term autoappendectomy, because the idea amused me.

So imagine my surprise today when I found out that one has actually been performed.
