French speakers! Is there a word in French for a non-binary person? I’m not talking about pronouns, more like “enby” - an equivalent to “homme” or “femme”?

"... each time I recall fragment 91 of Heraclitus, 'You cannot step into the same river twice,' I admire his dialectical skill, for the facility with which we accept the first meaning ('The river is another') covertly imposes upon us the second meaning ('I am another') and gives us the illusion of having invented it..." - Borges

Need some help here.

What are the basics of infosec? What should everyone in this field should learn/ know/ be able to do?

The reason I am asking: I am kinda lost bc this field is so big. There is so much to learn which makes it kinda difficult to detect the basics (as a beginner).

Personal experience, book/ resource recommendations and and other feedback is highly welcome and preferable with a reason why s.o. should know it.

I wonder what the Mario brother's parents are like. Are they orphans? Is their whole family involved in the plumbing trade? Can their mom ride an ostrich while holding a lance?

As relevant as ever:

"The events of 1933-1945 should have been fought no later than 1928. Later it was too late. One must not wait until the struggle for freedom is called treason. One must not wait until the snowball has become an avalanche. You have to crush the rolling snowball. No one stops the avalanche."

-- Erich Kästner

What if privacy law was as strict as copyright law nowadays? You are not allowed to copy any private information about someone until 70 years after their death, even if it was non-commercial, and you can sue the heck (that is: €€€) out of someone if they do.
And then do the reverse to copyright law: copying anything copyrighted is the standard, creators who don't want it are refuted with "Oh, but you don't have something to hide, do you?", and Big Tech and Government actively help people to copy work from creators and to spread it further.

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

Okay I had a slice and it was really good. Not life changing good. Unless you keep a list of top five pies you’ve eaten in your life then yeah.
