does not mean equality in the literal sense.
more for women to have the freedom, to be themselves.
the freedom, to work and play and live in peace.

means to actually live to the basic ideal of live and let live.

wotw, lgbtqia+

If you're just learning about sexuality, gender, and all these other things, they can be a little hard to remember. This acronym not only serves as a symbol of our movement for rights, but even as a memory tool for those who need a little help.

wotw, intersex

basically means that we finally admit to ourselves that we humans come in all shapes and sizes and that we cannot really slot or categorise people into our narrow worldview and then judge them for not meeting our crazy expectations.

This is a comment for code!
for x in y:

wotw, heuristic

Means a quick rule of thumb. something you can use to approximate a result really quickly.
Means a quick mental shortcut.

Like if i asked you how long would it take my money to double at 8% annual interest?
My answer, in a flash would be 9 years.

How did I know that, so quickly?

Because I used a quick heuristic. The Rule of 72.
If I divide 72 by the rate of interest, I can quickly get a grasp of how quickly my money will double.

wotw, kilogram

the mass of a cylinder, stored in a locked vault in Paris. all the other kilograms must match the mass of this one!

Er no, not any more :) our standard of mass is now based on an infinitesimally small constant of the universe, the relation of the energy of a photon to its frequency.

Derek Muller explains,

wotw, mise en place

ok, switching to wotw instead of wotd, because i can’t keep up otherwise :)

mise en place means having everything ready before you start, everything in its own place.

handy when it comes to writing code too.

wotd, Ineffable

if you’re following the #goodomens craze you’ll bump into this word a lot.

means unknowable.
don't know. but i know it is holy and sacred. so won’t talk about it. that kind of feeling.

wotd, halcyon

an amazing peaceful prosperous time

throwback to a golden age!
