Some people have that "I don't check emails after work hours" thing in their email signature...I need one like, "I check emails after work hours but if I receive your email then, I'll forget that I read it and forget to mark it as unread and you'll never hear from me again"

This has been the most civil twitter comment thread of all time, I thank you all! Looks like we have (1) a common confusion (2) closed is the more likely usage and (3) the same issue in French!

So I am a native English speaker and I read a lot but tonight I realized that I don't know if "with the curtains drawn" means that the curtains are open or the curtains are closed

In a photo it is just a blur by the big dipper, but when I see @Space_Station I think that there is still adventure in this world ❤️

When a hotel clerk says "oh just grab any of our bikes to use, no one around here uses locks" what she means is "any potential thief of these unwieldy beasts could be caught by my one-legged grandma on foot so we don't bother locking them, good luck getting past the first hill!"
