Have a bit of laugh at my remission of the Melania Trump accent! (I had no idea it was that bad!)

Pity that I don't have the Carla Bruni-Sarcozy accent :-(
BTW, if someone's looking for a nice job in a startup (which is actually making money), has experience with databases and can write idiomatic (not idiotic!) Python code, let 'em PM me :-)

I’m glad you reposted that, since I was going temporarily insane trying to locate what I must have seen in a brief (15-minute?) window between your original post and its removal.

Wait, are you saying that you're crazy about the Melania Trump accent?
Sigh, I picked up the wrong Norwegian ;-)

Firing the stove can help too, but I will have to resort to this solution in the summer.

“We’re all familiar with hyperbolic media headlines that warn us that something mundane increases the risk of some dread occurrence: I like to call these ‘cats cause cancer’ stories. For example, in November 2015 the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC) announced that processed meat was a ‘Group I carcinogen’, putting it in the same category as cigarettes and asbestos. This inevitably led to panicky headlines such as the Daily Record’s claim that ‘Bacon, Ham and Sausages Have the Same Cancer Risk as Cigarettes Warn Experts’.4” “The IARC tried to quell the fuss by emphasizing that the Group 1 classification was about being confident that an increased risk of cancer existed at all, and said nothing about the actual magnitude of the risk. Lower down in the press release, the IARC reported that 50g of processed meat a day was associated with an increased risk of bowel cancer of 18%.”
