    Eternally in our hearts,
    Until we meet again,
    Cherished memories,
    Known as
    Our son, brother,
    Father, papa, uncle,
    Friend, and cousin.​​

    And there are at least six more synonyms for "forever". Or you can keep the meaning while changes all the words:

    Eternamente en nuestros corazones,
    Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo,
    Recuerdos preciados,
    Conocido como
    Nuestro hijo, hermano,
    Padre, papá, tío,
    Amigo y primo.​

    Interesting topic. It reminded me of this:

    List of Printers Which Do or Do Not Display Tracking Dots

    Warning

    (Added 2015) Some of the documents that we previously received through FOIA suggested that all major manufacturers of color laser printers entered a secret agreement with governments to ensure that the output of those printers is forensically traceable. Although we still don't know if this is correct, or how subsequent generations of forensic tracking technologies might work, it is probably safest to assume that all modern color laser printers do include some form of tracking information that associates documents with the printer's serial number. (If any manufacturer wishes to go on record with a statement to the contrary, we'll be happy to publish that here.)

    The biggest problem with this scheme is that you need to change letters or words without changing the meaning of the text.

    Invisibly marking a piece of text, especially a short one, is a pretty though problem, since text is inherently sparse. A lot of the underlying information of text is carried in the context and "subtext" of that text. Compare this to an image or video, where you often have millions of pixels to burry information.

    The only reliable way I can think to watermark text is to hash the whole thing then, somehow, bury the hash into the text.

    One could use whatever hash algorithm that's appropriate then convert the hexadecimal number to base-26, turning the code into the letters A through Z. Then, somehow change certain word or character positions to have that letter in them. Determining whether the text has been altered would require looking for those letters in the preassigned positions.

    The problem with that scheme is that burying the hash into the text changes the hash. You'd have to be able to tell which letters were changed and what they should have been before the original hash was done.

    Of course, this idea won't work for obvious reasons but it's a thought experiment.

    Watermark text? That sounds like a ridiculous concept on its face but there is a way.

    This is the best short lecture I've seen in some time.
    Regarding the watermarking of text via that method: There have since been other papers showing that this kind of watermarking is pretty ineffective, as it can easily be detected and be defeated. You could actually train another LLM to detect the watermarking and reliably remove it for you.

    One of our neighbors, just down the street, has an RV parked in their yard.

    At Christmas time, they decorate it with lights then they stand a mannequin wearing a white robe and a flap hat next to it, complete with hose in-hand.

    About a hundred times a day, people drive by and shout, "Shitter's full!"
