As long as you ignore the one definition which is recursive when recursing back to the main definition, the recursive definition may very well be totally legit ๐Ÿ˜„

When talking about Merriam-Webster's new definition of racism, AC concluded that the definition is recursive. To which JCD concluded that it doesn't make sense.
Recursion may be tricky, but as long as there exist proper stop condition it's actually fine. It's not the same as tautology. The M-W definition listed 4 definitions of which one referenced the whole definition itself (hence recursion).

Hey. A thought came to my mind. People all over are telling other people to take a knee or to kneal.
You know where else that happens? Well in the Game of Thrones of course.
Bend a knee to your Queen!

Did someone figure out the dogpatch-guys dame drive donation note which so much confused @adam and John? To me it sounded pretty clearly like this:
His donation sum 1000+ something should be divided to each female donor in this or previous show.
So if there were like 4 female donors each should get around 250 credit towards their damehoid.

Dunno why the "boys" insist that it should be like one dame to be instadamed ๐Ÿคท. Maybe due to the original overly complicated model.

Whaddya think?

Tell me that someone is selling storm trooper helmets with hepa filtering. That would be the style to combat covid!
If not and someone is willing to produce them, I'm willing to lisence the idea for like 50% of the winnings.

This just in: 59% of Finns move to remote work during corona. That is the biggest number in Europe.

Praise the Lord! The schools in Finland will reopen in 2 weeks ๐ŸŽ‰. I'm so happy ๐Ÿค—

Social distancing: There should be 1-2 m between each person.
Finns: WTF? Why the hell should we get that close to anyone? ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ

Corona might have leathality rate of about 1%.
If 10% of a group of people are killed, it is called decimated.
OH MY GOD! We might be centimated by the covid ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Are podcasts commonly referred to as "pods" by younger generations? Just heard this on a podcast and it makes little sense to me.

Hmm. @adam said that people in EU will have some kind of passport to be allowed to move out again.
Dunno if something like that is coming, but at least for now in Finland we do not have any stay at home orders in place. Although all restaurants, events, schools etc are closed so there's limited number of things to go to, no one else than covid-19 sufferers are forbidden from moving around.

Although the capital are is quarantined from the rest of the coutry.

Interesting to see how this evolves.
