Took the day off of work to enjoy time with my family before Christmas. Of course this means staying up until 3 am helping my wife wrap Christmas presents, then running errands the second I got up. Hooray adulting.

I've always wondered why in "Castles in the Sky" by Ian van Dahl, they sing "do you ever question your b'life" and "do you ever see in your b'dreams", like why is that b so prominent? And no lyrics sites list it?

In English, you can suffix a word with "-er" to indicate increasing intensity, like "loud"->"louder". It's really an intensity vector, but the direction is based on the root word, e.g. "soft"->"softer" indicates less volume, not more. What if there was a suffix that indicated decreasing intensity on its own? E.g. "loud"->"loudes" means "less loud" and "softes" means "less soft" or equal to "louder". Do other languages have this?

Watched the second episode of The Mandalorian on my TV in HDR. It's the first thing I've watched in HDR (ever) and it was incredible!
