Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean.

It’s barely 8AM here and already I’ve learned a valuable lesson in Spanish:

(el) jugo/zumo con pulpa = juice with pulp

(el) jugo/zumo con pulpo = juice with octopus

An important difference.

An actual conversation from my first trip to Spain:

Me: Hay zumo sin pulpo?

Clerk: Son todos sin pulpo.

You got young enlisted guys, 18-to-22 years old — they’ve suddenly been thrust into a situation with extraordinary responsibility where they now have access to all of your private records,” Snowden said. “Now, in the course of their daily work, they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense, for example, an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation, but they’re extremely attractive.

So what do they do, they turn around in their chair and show their coworker. And their coworker says, “Oh, hey, that’s great. Send that to Bill down the way.” And then Bill sends it to George, George sends it to Tom. Sooner or later, this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people. It’s never reported, nobody ever knows about it because the auditing of these systems is very weak. The fact that your private images, records of your private lives, records of your intimate moments have been taken from your private communications stream, from the intended recipient, and given to the government without any specific authorization, without any specific need, is in itself a violation of your rights? Why is that in a government database?

In the lovely, ever-confusing English language, there are several words that can be contradictory of themselves, called contronyms. For example, the word “left” can mean you’ve gone, or that you’re still there. “Resign” is often meant to say you’ve quit a commitment, but can also mean you’ve signed up again. The word “off” can mean shut down, or unmoving, or in the context of such sentences like “the alarm went off early.” A longer list can be found here!
