More to the point, this is just about power. Squeaky wheels getting oil. It has nothing to do with the horrors of dealing with other people*, except when it can be emotionally harnessed to achieve more power.

Get older - you realize it's all bullshit posturing for power for people ill-equipped to achieve it through honest means. In other words, beta males and most women. It's ineffectual and the power achieved is of a group nature in most cases, which is the worst kind. But it doesn't stop people from seeking it by trumpeting how terrible their life has been. Race peddlers, gender peddlers, homosexual activists - all the same.

Nothing but contempt for the idea and the execution. Something to be routed around.

* And it's most assuredly horrific, but we all get to deal with it at some level or another.

That's as maybe but we have Healthcare that is FREE at the point of delivery.

That's not quite true for dental work, but the price is capped, so you'll typically pay £18.50 to see a dentist, £50.50 if you need something done, or £219 if you need something serious. It's only free if you qualify for extra assistance, which is automatic if you are under 18, under 19 (25 in Wales) and in full-time education, on income support or similar.

Researchers Test Developer Biometrics To Predict Buggy Code 87

By measuring a developer's eye movements, physical and mental characteristics as they code, the researchers tracked alertness and stress levels to predict the difficulty of a given task with respect to the coder's abilities. In a paper entitled "Using Psycho-Physiological Measures to Assess Task Difficulty in Software Development," the researchers summarized how they strapped an eye tracker, an electrodermal sensor and an EEG sensor to 15 developers as they programmed for various tasks. Biometrics predicted task difficulty for a new developer 64.99% of the time. For a subsequent tasks with the same developer, the researchers found biometrics to be 84.38% accurate. They suggest using the information to mark places in code that developers find particularly difficult, and then reviewing or refactoring those sections later.
