Bullshit. In 1960 you would be correct. In 1980 kernels were written in C, for new fangled micro computers.
If you don't want to get left behind the fads, don't choose an area that's all about fads.
Any kernel developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 1980.
Any driver developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 1980.
Any game developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 2000.
Right, but I've even seen what you're suggesting happen. This is when this "kindness" is at its most frustrating.
You sit and wait for a gap to get out of a junction. You see a gap, and you get yourself ready to slot into it. Then the jerk in front of the gap decides to be "kind" and slows down to try and let you out. He inevitably miscalculates, and ends up not letting you out, and also closing the gap behind him.
My only assumption is that they don't actually look around them while they're driving. I see this all the time - drivers letting one person out, and holding up an entire queue behind them instead. They simply must not realise there are people behind them.
No, pretty sure you're doing it wrong actually - crispy fish skin is a wonderful thing.
I'm pretty sure you'll have a hard time trying to find a user who legitimately wants to pass arguments to command line tools by naming a bunch of files according to those arguments
Bullshit. Roundabouts are used as the primary method of forming intersections between multilane major roads, and motorways in any country other than the US. They are perfectly capable of dealing with huge amounts of traffic.
And saves tarmac too, as the incoming and outgoing roads no longer have to deal with spikes and troughs in traffic, and can become substantially narrower.
The idea IIRC is not to disrupt the tornadoes. It's to disrupt the much more benign winds that interact to form tornadoes once they reach the mid west.
Right, because tesla haven't sold any of their $80,000 car that goes 1/5th of the distance, right?
Uhh, you realise that the other countries highlighted, where this is going better, are more socialist than the US, right?
The problem is, even if you have a job that you love (and I do), that doesn't mean that you want to (or that it's healthy to) spend every waking moment doing it. Variety is important for a healthy life.
This whole article is based on a fallacy - that Computer Science is teaching people to code.
This isn't what a Computer Science degree teaches you.
If you want to add a dozen orders of magnitude, you're talking about 2e12 minutes, i.e. 3800 millennia. Yet, people are happily living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Nuclear weapons are in general designed to consume all the highly radioactive things in them - after all, each of those radioactive elements is something that can be turned into energy for an explosion to occur. They don't generally have significant contamination issues.
Japan are probably worried that they are not in any way protected by the US nuclear program. They worry that the US would stop short of getting involved in world war 3 if China really did want to invade Japan. By building their own nuclear arsenal, they remove that possibility and maintain MAD with China.
