I found an amazing Ruby syntax proposal from 9 years ago:


Today is one of those days... I typed 'reboot'. Then my display went blank. Oops, it was the wrong terminal window. Abruptly ending the ongoing call with a colleague. On boot: "[...] has been mounted 30 times without being checked, check forced."
