I don't think anybody is saying "there is no coal miner on the planet you can teach to code".
What they're saying is "do not count on training all coal miners to write code and expect that to work".
The problem is that by running with the most plausible interpretation, you give up the opportunity to shake your head sadly whilst piously intoning moral platitudes.
It's only dying because people are lazy.
I was about to write a long-winded diatribe lambasting you for this brazen slight of lazy culture but... whatever
my Bro Jesus will have cool things to say to me when we finally meet.
"press alt-QQ for eternal life"
People who spend dark to dark in their offices often lose sight of life, while scrambling to the top. Give your endorphins a chance to work out, too. We're all headed to the grave, make sure your journey there isn't all work and no play.
Listen to you trying to get me to go home early so you can weasel your way past me to the corner office. I'm onto you, you scheming bastard. You and your bloody endorphins are headed to the grave sooner than you might imagine.
I always just use orphans. Nobody seems to care about those.
The best part is, unlike breeding normal laboratory animals, all you need to make more orphans is a PTA meeting and an assault rifle.
As Latvian, I not give two potato about situation in Crimea.

Christopher Reeve did paralysis.
Christopher Reeve didn't so much as raise a finger to promote awareness of his condition.
Why not stop killing each other first?
That's a terrible idea. If immortality turns out to be possible, we'll likely need a few perpetual wars to help thin out the population until we have the technology to blast the excess into space.
They didn't profess to know it, you inferred it. What they said was, "only half (of x number) felt comfortable being identified as female." Some people don't feel comfortable being identified as female because they are, in fact, male. You should realize that.
One cannot speak to what percentage of those who did not report their sex are male and what percentage are female, nor to their motivations for withholding this information. To infer that the sex this group felt "uncomfortable" reporting was female, rather than male, is unjustified. To infer that members of this group were "uncomfortable" reporting their sex is also unjustified, given that one might refuse to disclose information for other reasons than comfort. For example, one might refuse to provide information he expects might be employed by nitwits inclined to jump to unjustified conclusions.
