A few personal favorites:

English has three sets of words that communicate "this place" : "that place" : "what place". Each meaning can be paired with one of three prepositions ("in", "to", and "from") to form a specialized locative word:
"in" - here : there : where
"to" - hither : thither : whither
"from" - hence : thence : whence
So "here" means "in this place"; "thither" means "to that place"; "whence" means "from what place"; etc.

I've read that some folks sync their elfeed state across multiple machines by putting ~/.elfeed/ under git and then pulling as necessary, but I only use that setup for backup purposes; SSH suffices for me.
Oh, and I set up a cron job to update it on a fixed schedule, and installed a hook that uses DoIt to spawn tabs in my Firefox instance on Windows.
Mastodon, can we play a game?
You describe an animal badly, and I draw exactly what you described.
(Do not tell me what the animal is. I will not try to guess. Please tell me AFTER I finish the drawing.)
