Didn't we discuss, here, how a remote kill switch is AMAZINGLY DANGEROUS? Does it just turn off the ignition? In the middle of the highway? Do the brake lights come on to show I'm slowing down because the car is now off? Does the kill switch wait until I come to a stop to simply choke the car dead? Am I still stopped in the middle of a road with no way to move out of peoples' way?

Wikipedia's core tenet is "Everyone can edit". I've known I could edit it since the day I started using it. I just learned today, just now, that I can edit Google Maps, and I've been using it for years. Consequently, I have more trust in Google Maps (despite being burned a few times) than I do in wikipedia, even though wikipedia's citation policy lets me see how they got their information.
I'd say the aerospace industry is dealing with it a lot better than the software industry. Perhaps we should get held up to the same standards, maybe then we could earn the title of "(Software) Engineer".

Nah, Rust is the new hotness!
In fact, I like it more now that it _isn't_ cool!
Shall we drag out all the other obfuscated code contests and judge all languages guilty by the most heinous crimes committed with them? Remember that C and C++ give us Windows.
Do they not appreciate Huey Lewis's undisputed masterpiece? You should murder them with an axe.
Harley owners want to be noticed, and without the 120 decibel roar, we won't be paying enough attention to them.
