— 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.

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.”
