Faucet

It's okay, they can figure out which control positions produce scalding water via a trial-and-error feedback loop with a barely-perceptible 10-second lag.

How about two levers: pressure and temperature. Going up on either makes that thing go up.

TBF, you can shorten the feedback loop by putting the water heater INTO the faucet.

Division Notation

Science tip: Scientists hardly ever use the two-dot division sign, and when they do it often doesn't even mean division, but they still get REALLY mad when you repurpose it to write stuff like SALE! ALL SHOES 30÷ OFF!

A rare case where I think he has miscategorized: electric unicycles make a LOT of sense. The giant wheel rolls over common minor things that kill scooters, and you don't need both hands on it at all times to steer.

The category is "practicality", not sense-making - unicycles are harder to learn, control and master, and are much less common and more expensive; in all those senses they are less practical

Cryptocurrency people successfully ruin words 'crypto' and 'web', seek next target

During the annual Centralized Cryptocurrency Conference Planning (CCCP) leaders of the cryptocurrency community officially declared the successful completion of the first two "Ruin The Word" projects. It was reported that the first word — 'crypto' — took several years to ruin, while the next word — 'web' — was processed much quicker.

The spokesperson spoke thus:

At this point, nobody takes words "crypto" and, by extension, "cryptography" seriously. Today we can happily say the same about the words "web 3" and "web" itself!

The growing community is now seeking its next target, and considers the following words for 2022:

  • computer
  • protocol
  • file
  • internet
  • email
