First, we have constant articles on gender discrimination. Are we now going to get race discrimination articles? If we're all such white male racists here in Tech, why would women or black people even want to work here. These articles are getting so tiresome it almost feels like we're getting deliberately trolled.

And it caused the internet bubble, 9-11, the housing bubble, the Arab Spring, and molested several children in my neighborhood. Seriously one night I was coding in VB6 and I accidentally created an infinite loop....I shit you not it opened a portal to the ninth plane of hell and demons came pouring out. Satan's own right-hand-man had to come and stuff them all back into hell and close the portal, but not before praising me on the powerful black magic I was wielding with VB6.

The term "solar system" is also used to describe a collection of planets orbiting other stars besides Sol despite the etymology of Solar. Why? Because we have no other term (to my knowledge) to describe a collection of planets orbiting another star....and saying a collection of planets orbiting another star is waaaay too much of a mouthful.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
