"Jeg traff dem på båten" translates to "I met them on the boat", while "Jeg traff dem med båten" translates to "I hit them with the boat". #language
(The #nynorsk version of those sentences would be "Eg traff dei på båten" and "Eg traff dei med båten")
It seems that I managed to fix an old #printer. We were going to throw it out anyway, so I opened it (there were no screws).

The winds came
howling from the Great North,
with its white maw
Teeth of frost gnashing
mercilessly upon anything

But the wind ceaseless
in its mindless cruelty
