Dunning-Kreuger. As D&D players know, there's a reason why INT and WIS are separate stats.
Therefore time cube.
This isn't science/tech, really, it's of archaeological interest.
I'm 99% certain I found out about it first from one of the sites Google News aggregates; maybe you'll get good results if you have it show you lots of science/world/whatever stories.
It's been a couple weeks now since this was news on mainstream websites - the linked story is even from the 22nd of November. What's the point of posting it now?
Having just read through the New Testament and the first half-ish of the Old (to Ruth), I'm now left wondering what color the sky is on the biblical-literalist world.
Or, you know, you carry a smartphone and can always fall back on that instead of visiting an Internet cafe in the bad part of China.
So what? The point is to make it harder for crackers to get your password/token and additionally make it impossible for them to use the same credentials to access your accounts elsewhere.
Your point is irrelevant and seems to have been raised just to make yourself feel superior.
The proper way is to use a good password manager with the following features:
1) cloud-based sync, so you can access it from any computer or mobile device
2) multifactor authentication, such as a USB stick or a grid or biometrics
3) a configurable password generator (i.e. you can choose length, complexity, etc.)
I use LastPass and like it enough to have bought a year's subscription for $12, but there are other good choices out there like 1Password, or you could homebrew up something with e.g. DropBox + KeePass or Google Drive + TrueCrypt + something that can read TC volumes on iOS/Android.
Generate a different random password for each site needing an account, as complex and as long as the site will allow for, and with LastPass at least you can attach a note to each site's entry so you could enter random line-noise answers for security questions like "What is your mother's maiden name?", thus making crackers work much harder. I've also got LP set up for multifactor authentication and with a strong master password.
A reasonable explanation doesn't drive page clicks, which doesn't bring in ad views.
He had the privilege of having the opportunity to study after hours. Not everyone's got that privilege, e.g. people with small children or those who have to work two or three jobs to get by.
Granted there are people who have that opportunity but waste it, but not everyone's got even that.
My point being: boo hoo. If you can't handle it, grow a pair or find a different job.
^^^ privileged white man spotted. Not everyone's able to switch jobs, especially in a down economy, especially if they have dependents.
If only we had never domesticated cereals and vegetables, thereby allowing more people to survive to adulthood.
I've long feared that the USA is heading towards being another Weimar Republic: a powerless government that can't get anything done because of warring factions, and eventually the people get tired of this and elect a strongman who will Get Things Done... and Things will indeed Get Done, to our sorrow.
These neo-monarchists are a symptom of that, I think.
