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.

I used the same approach my requiring my users tattoo their passwords on their foreheads. Eventually my user base dropped to almost zero...but for those who stayed I did see an interesting trend. Passwords like %uS*32Ldi# started prevailing because passwords like wafflebunny make for an embarrassing tattoo.

That makes the assumption that one could only learn the concepts taught in a CS degree by participating in the program. That if you do not participate, then you will never be able to open some of those doors. That is simply not true. A college degree is an expensive certification that usually comes with little to no working experience. That is all.

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.

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
