Boldewyn is the name of the donkey in German fables (at least, the ones from Goethe). Despite its bad name, a donkey is an animal with its own head and quite a portion of wit.

As someone pointed out once, if you say to a horse to jump down that abyss, it would happily do so, whereas the donkey would give you a kick where you deserve it to.

And someone else pointed out, that laziness is a core requirement for a good developer...

comment Improving performance of a weighted search query in SQLite3
Thanks, so there is little chance of speeding this up? Do you have any idea, how a schema for such a task could look like to give better performance?

comment Why are there so many Unicode symbols for cats?
Yes, that's because the Wikipedia article for that characters, that is searched, too, contains the word "dog". They are listed below the more relevant search hits, though.

comment Jquery code not working on IE and firefox
Browsers use different elements for scrolling. Some use html, others body. You code looks like it could suffer from it, apart from what @Filype found. (Although "does not work" is kind of a vague error description, given that we don't know what you want to achieve.)

comment Why are there so many Unicode symbols for cats?
You searched the wrong site. On codepoints.net the ratio is in favor of dogs with 53 to 32. Most interestingly, many "dog" matches are Chinese characters. (That might partially explain the tensions between China and Japan...)

Sounds a bit, like something else would react to cookies. That would be another part of the code, though.
