Indeed. But nobody ever wants to talk about population. If simply 'curbing' CO2 is so hard, wouldn't it be easier to just have one big ass war? Sure it would be messy at first, but the long term benefits of nixing a few trillion people would be worth considering.
Do I win?
In the big picture, I'd say very much no.
Being one, I'd have to concur here.

I feel sorry for you because you fail at sex.
Any other cliches we've missed that are impossible to apply to everyone who's a 40-something programmer?

Mansion / Yacht are status symbols of the 80's/90's. You probably have a 3 or 4 character twitter account name.

That makes the assumption that one could only learn the concepts taught in a CS degree by participating in the program.

If you do not have a good (!) formal education in CS, what you can do is quite limited.
Having a CS degree by no means makes your skill-set unlimited. It is possible for someone without a formal degree to be more qualified. Life is complicated, we don't have to put a stamp on everything. Degrees are great, it tells me someone made it through boot-camp....this accounts for something, not everything.
Riiiight.......I definitely feel more elite taking my own garbage out rather than having someone else do it for me.
We have an employee with a treadmill at his desk. He walks and types. Of course his emails usually read something like, "Hewmy Jammmmes, I gto taht TSp reprt dne!".
Its a new form of crypto...with different levels, depending on the level of difficulty the treadmill is set on:
HILL128 - Hilly Level 1
MNT512 - Mountains Level 5
DED1028 - Death Race Level 10
..and pretty cool masks.
