So I learned of this great Japanese USB product. It’s a giant Enter key and it’s exactly what it looks like: Epic slamming of the Enter key. That is actually the product intent. That’s fantastic.

Schließlich macht der Autor eigene Vorschläge für Maßnahmen, die unter Berücksichtigung der durchschnittlichen Geschlechtsunterschiede helfen können, Tech-Berufe für Frauen attraktiver zu machen (achten Sie hier bitte auch darauf, dass das Schreiben von nahezu allen berichtenden Medien als „Anti-Diversitätspapier„, dessen Autor Frauen aus der Techbranche raushaben will, bezeichnet wurde).

If space travel doesn’t involve sea shanties then I think we’ll have missed an opportunity.

You see though, for sea travel you want big strong people who are capable of managing rigging.  For space travel you want small low-mass people who are technically educated, as they are called, nerds.  Your space shanties are going to be less booming and more squeaky.

in so far as there will be space shanties, they’ll be filk

I call shenanigans on the big strong people; sailors were young and malnourished by modern standards, and climbing around the rigging is easier if you’re small and light.

Like, I am 100% in favor of shanties in as many situations as possible, but I’m having trouble coming up with a mode of space travel that would require multiple humans to move in concert, thus necessitating songs with a strong beat to move to.  

Sea chanties were for providing a strong beat to move to.  Space chanties might very well arise just because we’re bored, out there between point A and point B for so long.

(Also yes, @gdanskcityofficial up there has the right of it.)

Space shanties are for warp piloting. Under warp drive, human time perception and time as measured by crystal or atomic oscillators don’t match. Starship pilots listen to a small unamplified chorus singing a careful rhythm while keeping their own eyes on a silent metronome that the chorus can’t see, linked to a highly-precise atomic clock. How the chorus and metronome fall in and out of sync tells the pilot how to keep the ship safely in the warp bubble and correctly on course.

Depending on route, a typical warp jump can last anywhere from one to ten minutes, and most courses consist of five to fifteen jumps before a necessary four to six hour break to check the engines, plot the next set of jumps, and give everyone a chance to recover. A good shanty team, with reliable rhythm, a broad, versatile, and extendible repertoire, and the stamina to do 3-4 sets a day over the course of a voyage, is just as vital to space travel as a pilot, navigator, or engineering team.

YESSSSS

Other reasons Shanties will experience a revival in the space age:

  • We will sing for any freaking reason, or no reason at all, and Shanties are FUN to sing.
  • Deep Space is a lonely place and recruiting people suited to long periods of isolation might be a good idea.  People from Newfoundland/Labrador, for instance.
  • SPACE WHALES
  • THEY’RE DEFINITELY REAL I FEEL IT IN MY SOUL
  • “What Do We Do With A Drunken Sailor” is basically a revenge fantasy against your most incompetent co-workers and if there’s something humans love doing, it’s being petty.

two points here:

  1. The genre of music exists and it’s called Filk
  2. listen to some Filk

one of the worst moments in life is probably when you’re in a room full of people and you look around and see them all talking and laughing and all of sudden you feel so sad and lonely that you can even feel a physical pain in your chest because you realize that they all belong to someone and they all have someone who belongs to them and you don’t, you’re just kind of there

I find it important to remember that many of these are countries that, until a few decades ago, were at war with each other pretty much constantly throughout history.

Bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich richtig verstehe, wo dein Verständnisproblem liegt. Aber mit "tank" kann auch die Tankfüllung gemeint sein. Der Satz würde übersetzt also lauten: "Jede Reise beginnt mit einer einzigen Tankfüllung." Auch nicht gerade Goethe, aber ist halt ein Werbespruch.
