At my company the security precautions have become a parody. 32 char mixed case, letters numbers, expiring every 4 hours. You have to get a new one every 4 fucking hours.

What's your estimate on the time lost by all employees for dealing with such precautions? Try to document that, with proof, and get a meeting with your boss(es). After they see the money wasted on being over-precautious, IT will probably calm down a bit. Even a new password every month would annoy the hell out of me.

Oh, okay. So let's fix the way we build cars but at the same time let's go backwards on how we fuel them.

Why can't it be both? Because his company probably can't make electric cars.

Which is why 99.99% of online giveaways, even if they are based in Canada, exclude Québec.

Tell me about it. I don't even check the requirements for any giveaways anymore, because they always end with "Except in the province of Québec".

Let me say it in french so it's pretty clear:
Fuck you, Loto-Québec.
