Unsolicited coding break garbage:
There was a Japanese scientist who had me build him some stuff for a rocket once, and one day, he went into the machine shop with me. American machinists are notoriously lewd and whatnot, so after he said "ohh, I like this, I really like this" about an intricate part that they had made, one of them says "well, Haruto, when we like something a lot, here in America, we say, 'that's the shit!' ". So the scientist says "Shit? What means shit?", and some of them are making the face ya do when you don't wanna "lose your shit", but the machinist comes back and says "It's just really good... stuff. Anything, really". The scientist thanks them for this lesson, and we leave.
Of course, less than a minute later, I had to tell him not to ever use that in a professional setting, and explain that it is a crude, explicit term. But to this day, the idea of being there, in the crowd, when he innocently exclaims that his data is "the shit", at a conference... hilarious, but I just can't do that to the guy.
