"Release me," the frog said, "and I will grant you a wish."
"Oh!" the boy said, "I wish to understand all animals!"

"Hey Mike, you know computers, how do I not get hacked?"

"Stop doing those dumb 'What Industrial Solvent Are You?' quizzes, delete Facebook and don't reuse your passwords."

An uninterrupted 24/7 church service was held in a The Hague church for 96 days to prevent the police from entering the building and deporting a refugee family.

Almost a thousand preachers spoke during the 2.300 hours of service.

The service was ended on January 30th, 2019, as new legislation was agreed upon that allowed the family to stay in the Netherlands.

"I hunger," the vampire said.
"Again? I haven't recovered from your last meal."

"That's it? Let me introduce you to yoghurt, and sourdough bread, and beer."

— Taylor Jenkins Reid, "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo"

The princess heard the tell-tale sound of someone climbing the outside of the tower. She looked out of the window and saw a princess, silken dress tied up, scaling the wall.
"This tower is taken," she called out.
"I know it is," came the reply, "but are you?"
"Oh... No! I'm not!"

Hahaha oh god, crypto funds "gone" when CEO dies without leaving any recovery method behind.

“The laptop computer from which Gerry carried out the company’s business is encrypted and I do not know the password or recovery key. ... The transfer of coins from the cold wallet to the hot wallet was performed manually by Gerry.”
