If you are reading this, thank this woman. Her name is Grace Hopper, and she is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists ever. You think Gates and Jobs were cool? THIS WOMAN WORKED ON COMPUTERS WHEN THEY TOOK UP ROOMS. She invented the first compiler, which is a program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can be read by a processor. Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by her first compiler.

Spread the word! (Although I’ll bet there are still some dudebros out there who’ll claim she’s a “fake geek”…)

Favorite fact: She coined the term “debugging” when they had to remove an moth (an actual, living moth) that had gotten trapped in the Mark II computer at Harvard University in 1947. While referring to glitches as bugs existed before, she brought the term into popularity. 

She also got the trend of personal computers going with her suggestion to the DoD to use more smaller units rather than one big one.

Please explain to me why I never knew about her before?

you know why

TIME gives you a primer on slang that Pharrell likes enough to put in the titles of his songs

On Wednesday, Pharrell dropped a video for his new single, “Come Get It Bae,”which may immediately raise some questions, such as “Come get what?” and “What in the world does bae mean, anyway?” The short answer: Though this word was used in the 1500s to refer to sheep sounds, today bae is used as a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend. Or perhaps a prospect who might one day hold such a lofty position.

"

He couldn’t water the flowers I planted in him. At first I was angry. So angry and selfish because I couldn’t understand, but now I know he couldn’t accept my flowers. He was still pulling weeds out. He couldn’t start a new garden till the old one was gone.

No matter the amount of light I wanted to shine on him it wouldn’t change the fact that there were still weeds to still be pulled.

Maybe another day.
Another time he could accept my flowers.

Maybe my own flowers will be better than before.
I saw a couple of weeds in mine anyway.

Maybe one day.
