Jorge Luis Borges specialized in envisioning the unenvisionable: a map the same size as the land it depicts, an event whose possible outcomes all occur simultaneously, a single point in space containing all other points in space, a vast library containing all possible books.

The Nepal earthquake was expected. For 15 years seismologists warned of growing tension along the Nepal-Bihar faultline, which snaps at least once a century. They feared a repeat of the 1934 disaster that killed 12,000, a sixth of the population, including the daughters of the King and Prime Minister. Now 2.5 million people are crammed into the Valley. Would the honeycomb of fragile, hastily built homes collapse? Would only the solid, historic bu...

The German surrounding cellphone communications has always struck me as being, well, goofy. The clunky “SMS,” short for “Short Message Service,” which English speakers ditched early on in favor of “text message” or now simply “text,” was still in currency when I lived in Germany a few years ago. Ich schicke dir ein SMS, I’ll send you an SMS, was a commonplace, though to be fair I have heard the less clunky Nachricht—message—as well. The common German word for cellphone, Handy, is also a bit on the funny side. It seems to have derived from “handheld” or some other word referencing “hand,” but it’s spoken aloud as it would be in English, rhyming with “dandy,” not like the German Hand, where the vowel sound is more like the short o in “bond.” 
On my desk right now are two dictionaries that I use for my translating work. The first, its dust jacket long missing, is a hardbound Oxford-Duden German Dictionary which, published in 2005, featur...

For the first four minutes of John Oliver's main story on Last Week Tonight, it's all good news: "Trendy clothes are cheaper than ever, and cheap clothes are trendier than ever," and clothing executives get rich while consumers get great deals. Then Oliver asks the obvious question, about how clothing brands make so much money on cheap fashion? "Let's be honest: You know the answer to that," he added, taking a trip down memory lane to the 1990s a...

It's been quite a while since I reviewed the Pilot Justus 95, which was a great pen with a really interesting nib. But that wasn't the only pen Pilot sent me! I also got to play with this: the Pilot Metal Falcon, another semi...
