PEP 690: Lazy imports in Python! Sounds like it will eliminate any reason to put import statements halfway through a file.

YouTube has started putting a red circle around channel icons if they posted a Short™️ recently. This red circle is easily misinterpreted because it's usually the universal signifier that someone is live 😑
