My current preschooler has had an Israeli teacher for the last 2 years who believes every project needs glitter. Thanks to Purim, everyone in my house has glitter on them right now. Let's just say his peeve post hit me at the right time.
Can we get a lifehack post of how to get it off everything?

Imagine if we had used glitter to show how covid spreads

I'm all ears. My current method is to treat it like IBS: come to terms with it being in your life, and acknowledge there is nothing you can do about it. For the most part you just ignore it, and when the flare-ups happen, yell at G-d for creating something so pointless and frustrating.

Along with lots of other hyperbolic terms used in those outlets.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Technically, if it happened, it's historic.

Just go in to a frum vitamin store and ask for an IBS remedy, they'll make a fortune on you. And you'll swear you feel much better because it's a better feeling than admitting you were ripped off and consumed old sorts of milled plants for nothing :)

Someone once sent me the "style guide" from the Yated. This is in it:

Quote
- Please refrain from using the following clichés:
   “Countless.” Most things can be counted.
   “Historic.” Unless it’s truly historic.

When you type the wrong password 3 times because you are one digit off and it keeps resetting when your are up to the second-to-last digit.

For example.

Password=1234

1123
*wrong password*
4123
*wrong password*
4123
*wrong password*
4123
*wrong password*
4123
