    On a side note, I wish cabin trains were far more popular. I would happily pay significantly more if I got my own, personal space for the duration of the journey. It would make the comfort & quality of the journey magnitudes better.

    I don't think I could bring myself to use an invasive technology unless it was to save my life or alleviate suffering so great that I didn't want to live. Even then there are limits. I'm the same way with the ironically named social media even if it has lead to being out of the loop for some things, for good or ill.

    Taking a descriptive approach to English has allowed people to try things like using the word 'they' to describe both an individual & a group. So I think it's fair to say that being prescriptive does have its positive uses too.

    I’ve always thought 30 year is an ideal time length but I can definitely see the appeal of nostalgia cycles. 50 years sounds like a perfect length of copyright and I can only hope we get there someday even if work ends up getting grandfathered in and I never get to see it pay off.
