Linus Torvalds:

β€œSo it’s the biggest sporting day of the year here in the US, when everybody is getting ready to watch the yearly top TV commercials, occasionally interrupted by some odd handegg carrying competition that I still haven’t figured out the rules for after twenty-odd years here. It’s kind of a more violent and hands-on team-oriented version of the traditional egg-and-spoon race, and involves a lot of standing around, apparently waiting for the next commercial to come on. Outside the US, everybody scratches their heads about the whole thing, and hopefully life goes on with the weekly celebration involving compiling and testing new kernels instead.”

"Ah, doctor? About the teleporter experiment..."
"Hm? You have begun testing with chicken?"
"Yes, we're done with frogs. You recall mentioning a theoretical risk of regression?"
"Oh! It happened?"
"Er, no. After sixtytwo iterations it spoke, asking what we were doing to it."

She hung a lantern off the side of her boat, humming softly to the water. After a bit she began making up words - the original lyrics long since lost.

She knew she couldn't hold a tune but she was confident she was getting the gist of it.

Her throat dried, her tongue ached - still, she sang, until

"Can no one in your accursed family sing?"

She grinned, snapping a selfie with the irate selkie.

"What do you want?"

"Singing lessons."
