Sure you can teach a coal miner to code. For example:
A variable is like a bucket. A bucket that can hold different types of coal. You can glue several buckets together to hold several pieces of coal, this is called an array of buckets. Just remember the first bucket is called bucket number zero.

You must really be confused about Scientology..
Hmm, I wonder if the brick manufacturer is changing the specs of their bricks every week. Of course brick v8.12 is not compatible with brick v7, and currently there is no compatible mortar for 8 series bricks.
You don't give them your PIN, you give them the 3 numbers on the back of the card. You only need to have your chip read and PIN entered when using the card at a physical store.
Beta needs more whitespace.
