The Scala 3 “Dotty” procedure syntax

As a note to self, the Scala 3 “Dotty” procedure syntax is going to look like this:

def f() = { ... }
def f(): Unit = { ... }

This Scala 2 procedure syntax is being dropped:

def f() { ... }

You can find the official Dotty procedure syntax page at this link.

As for me, I’m adding this page right now because I noticed today that this procedure syntax (without the parentheses) also works with Dotty:

Consuming edible marijuana products can lead to repeated and severe bouts of vomiting

Several times when I’ve told people in Colorado that I have mast cell disease, they’ve replied, “Have you tried marijuana for that?”

In what might be a related story, one time I went to the ER and a young man there was vomiting extremely loudly and repeatedly into a large bucket. I initially didn’t know what was going on and sat down near him, but once he started vomiting I got up and moved away from him, as everyone else had already done. I recall hearing someone say that he had been there before for the same problem.

I say that it might be related because a few days ago I read that consuming edible marijuana products can lead to “repeated and severe bouts of vomiting,” a condition known as cannabinoid hyperemesis. From what I know, people consume edible products, don’t feel anything immediately, so then they consume some more, etc. Apparently it takes time for consumables to kick in, so when they do, people find out the hard way that they’ve consumed too much. I was just reminded of all that when reading this UCHealth story.

Schism, by Tool

I recently had my blood drawn by a man with a lot of tattoos and piercings, and while we were talking he asked what my favorite band was. I answered Guns n' Roses, and then asked what his was, and he said, Tool.

I totally forgot about that band. I think back in the day (the 1990s), Schism was my favorite song from them, but I’m still trying to recall them all. I had never seen that video before, but parts of it reminded me of Justin Kamerer and
