1950 is not the best starting point. That's like saying things are better now that slavery has ended. The drift since the 2008 crash has been in the wrong direction.
Technical writing is probably the best bet unless you are both very ambitious (to spend many many hours teaching yourself) and lucky (to get past HR).
One problem with technical writing is that, like management, it is usually a one-way street. If someone who is very technical leaves engineering it is almost impossible to get back into doing real engineering because the world moves on.
The exceptions, if you call it that, are that less technical generalists can sometimes thrive in project management or marketing.
The pun subtitle was "Calisthenics and orthodontia" which was dropped fairly soon. So the Dr presumably referred to a dentist (although most denists are not doctors).

What is the equivalent of music concerts as a revenue source for coders?
There are some things rats will not do.
There are arts graduates in our technical writing department. It is about the same effort teaching an engineer to write as teaching a writer about engineering. In general SW or high-level HW design have been the best fit and low level integration the hardest.
Pipelining increases performance and instructions per cycle, but at the cost of power efficiency as branches cause a pipeline flush.
The problem is balancing area, performance, and performance.
There are obviously limits the the ability to make smaller circuits, even the ones described as 14nm are not really 14 in the same way 160 was 160. There is a lot of wasted space because of the LELE process and the need to minimise crosstalk and distortion.
The real limit however is not how much better X-ray exposure will shrink the size, but how much it costs to make circuits, 28nm is likely to be the most cost efficient size for some time to come. Many fabs are making chips in larger process sizes for fast turnaround and cheap masks.
But as it can be synthesised, that refutes the argument that "if we destroyed it, it would be gone forever"
Some theories for the end of the universe say that if the expansion of the universe keeps accelerating, eventually the expansion even between subatomic particles will be greater than the speed of light and everything will be ripped apart. This is long long after the skies are black because all objects and space have moved too far away.
The time for light might be zero in its own frame of reference, but of course no object with rest mass could ever reach the speed of light.
This is one of those topics that attracts loonies like flies to honey. Of course in the comments below, each side thinks the other side crazy too much control or too irresponsible.
For me, I think everyone should be vaccinated for common and dangerous diseases. The uncommon ones you can chose to or not (as when traveling). People don't remember polio and smallpox or brain-damage caused by measles.
There is too long, didn't read, and there is too long without paragraph breaks, didn't read.

Then it was not "literally" but "figuratively" and only relative to newer companies was it "very old". Other than that your post was very accurate and literally filled with eels.
“I would not hurt you, little man,' he said.
'I think that I got the disorder in Mullingar,' I explained. I knew that I had gained his confidence and that the danger of violence was now passed. He then did something which took me by surprise. He pulled up his own ragged trouser and showed me his own left leg. It was smooth, shapely and fairly fat but it was made of wood also.
'That is a funny coincidence,' I said. I now perceived the reason for his sudden change of attitude.
'You are a sweet man,' he responded, 'and I would not lay a finger on your personality. I am the captain of all the one-legged men in the country. I knew them all up to now except one—your own self—and that one is now also my friend into the same bargain. If any man looks at you sideways, I will rip his belly.'

Perhaps the question is whether both ends of the cable is the same.
The 3.1 micro B shown in the figure has different ends, the C version is the same at both ends (and of course the plug on each end is reversible).
