I believe that @{[]} is known as the "baby buggy". Can't remember where I read that though.

    Originally, it seems there was a crude name proposed for this operator, based on this response from BooK to Sebastien Aperghis-Tramoni:

    > Hey Philippe, why don't you give the name we found for @{[]} ? Because *you* found it, and want to have *my* name associated with it.

    To further deflect attention from the taboo name, BooK then started another fwp thread and suggested "Baby Cart". Which was rejected by native English speakers on the grounds that they had never heard it used in everyday speech -- some suggested alternatives, such as "Baby Carriage", or simply "Pram". Many other names were proposed in this long thread, including:

    As far as I'm aware, this important naming issue remains unresolved.

[ambrus]: Corion: four days a week? hmm
[Corion]: ambrus: I did that in 2012 and 2013, to try it out, and I found the available time to be worth more to me than the money
[Corion]: I've started that again this month (now forever instead of a limited time), and it already destresses me a lot
[holli]: There are Anti Vaxxer weeks at IKEA.
[Corion]: Of course, it's a 20% cut in the money I receive, while the work doesn't necessarily reduce at all, but my approach is to make the work take longer instead of fitting 5 days worth of work into 4
[holli]: 50% off all children coffins.
[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
