Interesting floating-point summation tip [ twitter.com/raymondh/status/13 ]:

"Raymond Hettinger @raymondh

floating point ninja tip: Use parentheses to regroup sums to minimize accumulated round-off error.

Instead of:
a + b + c + d + e + f + g + h

Write:
((a + b) + (c + d)) + ((e + f) + (g + h))

Note, the total work is unchanged."

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️

PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Heutzutage wird man schon in die rechte Ecke gestellt, nur weil man bei gleichzeitigem Schwenken von Reichskriegsflaggen versucht hat, den Reichstag zu stürmen, um die Regierung abzusetzen.

More than 20 African countries have joined together to plant a giant wall of trees that will run across the continent to stop the spread of the Sahara Desert. The Great Green Wall of Africa will stretch for 7,000 kilometres, from coast to coast right across the continent.

#Belarus Pro-Lukashenko group tried to create a poll in vk.com social network. It didn't go according to the plan... #facepalm (Lukashenko got only 12,71%)

Ich finde es unangemessen, den Herrn einen Trittbrettfahrer zu nennen. Hätte er wirklich ein Trittbrett (aka Skateboard) dabei, müsste er da nicht sitzen.
