The Best Way to Type ¯_(ツ)_/¯ - The Atlantic
"All hail ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. In its 11 strokes, the symbol encapsulates what it’s like to be an individual on the Internet. With raised arms and a half-turned smile, it exudes the melancholia, the malaise, the acceptance, and (finally) the embrace of knowing that something’s wrong on the Internet and you can’t do anything about it."

"Experts predicted the computer science GCSE would not work as a replacement for the ICT which was scrapped in 2015 as they are very different subjects.
