I am not "Rambo", and real life is NOT a movie.
It could be, though! Think of the possibilities! Give everyone and gun and let the games begin! After all, we must enjoy this sort of thing, or we'd have put a stop to it long before now. All I'm saying is that maybe we should just play the hand we're dealt!
And yes, I could start a widget set project or something to try to rectify the situation, and then we'd have one more competing widget set that probably sucks. The programming's really not that hard once you start learning your way around the various tools, but it is pretty tedious and writing even a widget set is a fairly large undertaking with no guarantee anything you do will ever be adopted by anyone.
To stay somewhat on-topic, "Swell, now I'm going to have to learn assembly language for DNA." Which I probably would also use EMACS for. Maybe we could code an ACTUAL gnome, though. That would be confusing and funny at the same time. I'm sure the Germans have a word for that.
There are some potentially sensible candidates on the left and right, but no one's paying much attention to them right now. It doesn't really matter who becomes president as long as Congress remains broken. Voters are largely indifferent because the two party system is effectively rigged to keep those two parties in power. I could see Trump getting elected on name appeal alone. It's still pretty early, though. I suspect Trump and Hillary will end up getting ejected from the race. Whatever happens, it's going to be a wild ride.
Uncertain fortune is thoroughly mastered by the equity of the calculation. - Blaise Pascal
