The phenomenon of comma-sext, a term playfully coined to describe the intentional placement of a comma to add a suggestive undertone to a statement, is a fascinating look into how punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence. One of the most famous instances of this can be found in Lin-Manuel Miranda's acclaimed musical "Hamilton," specifically in the song "Take a Break."

“It’s not the happy people who are grateful. It is the grateful people who are happy.” This quote from the English philosopher Francis Bacon posits that gratitude makes us happy. But how much truth lies in these words? What is gratitude actually, which positive effects can it have, and how can it be practiced?
Det finns faktiskt få saker som ger oss KTH:are mer glädje än att få skryta om vår älskade skola. För oss är det en ära att bära de blåvita färgerna, som inte bara smyckar skolans hallar men även essensen av studentlivet. Bland alla stolta blåvita bärare utmärker sig vårt egna hockeylag, The Royal Blue, som en sann representation av vår stolthet.
The summer time brings forth the urge to either take a breather and simply laze around as you bask under the sunlight, preferably with a light breeze and cool drink or to explore a new sight, where everything is a novelty to you, the people, the food and history. In this travel guide, we aim to provide spots that can fulfill either ambitions, all while considering each student’s (current) kryptonite: money!
Remember the good times, when butter didn't cost an arm and a leg? I sure do! Everywhere you look, prices are high and it's a sore sight to see. CSN has been raised to combat the high costs of living - but even then, it’s barely enough! Just recently, it was reported by SSCO that students STILL lose about 2700 kr every month! Is there a method for surviving inflation, or are we all financially doomed?
When you start studying at KTH and become a member of THS, you are automatically assigned to a chapter based on your programme. What if that never happened? What if we chose chapters not by what subject you are going to study, but based on personality quizzes, intelligence tests or what you would bring to a deserted island? Ask no more. Osqledaren has developed a foolproof method to assign you to the chapter you ACTUALLY belong to. Flip to the next page and find out.
You might know them from their striped yellow shirts and black tailcoats; or you might know them as the band with the tiger-striped bus. But did you know that it was the dance group's 65 year anniversary performance recently? And that it wasn’t actually PQ’s?
The general public is composed of a variety of social groups and more often than not popular culture has shown that the smaller these groups are the more odd they might seem. University students are no exception to that phenomenon. Bearing that in mind, there must be a smorgasbord of university traditions across the globe that to the average outsider might either seem incredibly fun or very confusing.
People are wrong. They go on with their busy life, thinking the world revolves around them. They have strong opinions, which they believe to be facts. This list of “facts” goes on and on, including: the sky being blue, tomatoes being vegetables or IKEA mugs not being sentient. Well, they are just wrong! As a matter of fact, the sky has many colors, tomatoes are obviously fruits and IKEA mugs are unmistakably sentient. And I am one of them.
Lost baggage, no accommodation, shattering the expectations of an enjoyable "orientation" period were only the start to my Swedish journey. Does this sound familiar? Here is what that hectic shift really looked like for me. No sunshine and rainbows, but a good story to tell.
This article is about an insanely loud creature that can grow to be 20 meters long and weigh up to 80 tonnes. Now, before you make any witty remarks about my mother, I assure you that you’re not as clever as you think you are and you’re not ready to tread down that path. Instead, I want to tell you about the greatest animal that’s ever blessed God’s green earth with its presence. The animal that possesses the largest brain in the entire animal kingdom: the sperm whale.
Throughout my childhood, just like for most of my friends, gaming was a source of entertainment and the greatest competitor for my spare time. However, in the context of an economy in decay and where resources are scarce, online gaming has come to take up a different role in the lives of many Venezuelans. It has become a necessity for survival.
What if one day every single human on earth were to mysteriously vanish without a trace? No more playful shouts of children coming from the school yard, no more ongoing drone of traffic clogging the streets, nothing. What would happen to the place we once called home when no one is there anymore?
Slask. Jag har svårt att komma på något jag avskyr mer. För er som råkar vara insatta i polsk fotboll så är det inte klubben Śląsk Wrocław jag avskyr utan jag syftar snarare på den typen av snö som av någon anledning vägrar smälta helt och hållet. Snön som klamrar sig fast vid sitt forna jag likt en amerikansk president som förlorar makten efter enbart fyra år. Ni vet att man brukar säga att samerna har mer än 200 ord för att beskriva olika snöförhållanden? Jag har bara ett ord som beskriver vad jag känner för slask: hat.
Det finns en idé på senare år som säger att KTH blivit en ingenjörsfabrik, dit unga och yngre personer kommer för att jobba upp ett studielån, som sedan betalas tillbaka medelst högavlönade yrken, vilka diverse mor- och farföräldrar har svårt att beskriva för sina seniora vänner i vårt långa land falukorv.
KTH is closed to all students for an uncertain period of time. The existence of the Corona Virus COVID 19 has certainly not slipped anybody's mind. OL was lucky enough to get the chance to talk to some students the last day before the official KTH Campus shutdown. We asked them what they were still doing on campus during such a time of paranoia, what they were up to, and what they were planning to do in the case of a campus shutdown.
Först och främst, tack för en välskriven replik! Det är inspirerande att få reaktioner av läsare. Sedan kan Dina Oetterli glädjas av att känselspröten varit på service som föreslaget, och är därmed om möjlig ännu mer finkänsliga än tidigare.
