Not only that but a company that lets someone do that is shooting themself in the foot. Sooner or later 80 hour a week guy is going to leave, good luck getting someone that is
A: willing to do it coming in
B: not taking the job until something better comes along.

It's not a badge of honor, just an example of rationalization for a crappy job.

So you nicely repeat the lies they have fed to you ?

What lies? That there are a bunch of murderous thugs trying to take over the Middle East and impose a 1500-year-old fascist dictatorship on the 99.9% of ordinary people that live there?

The lies about the suicide bombers with surgically-implanted bombs?

The Isis thing is once again financed by the Sauds. YOUR friends.

Yes, I know who finances them. They're not "my friends." I've never met any of them personally, and I don't approve of any of it, whichever of the warring sides you care to mention.

Anyway, the new dude is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and he's assimilating Irag, Syria and probably Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Somalia, Nigeria... you name it... into his all new "proper" Islam state.

A number of armies in the region are already squaring up, including Iran and Saudi. There have been some murders of Israeli and Palestinian teenagers by terrorists too, probably trying to goad each side into action.

It's a bloody miserable state of affairs.

And if you aren't a dumbass, you'll use ...

A simpler, more efficient high-level (higher than C++) language that is more expressive with fewer lines of code, less prone to introducing silly bugs caused by human error, and more readable by other programmers.

C++ is for those serious programmers who want to get real work done, and who don't have time to waste with overhyped crap.

C++ is for conformists and trend-followers lacking in enough critical thinking skills of their own to investigate and adopt better tools for the job.

That's what it is.

The end of quarter profit is what matters. Suck it up and take it like a man! Pull your weight like a true team player or you'll be let go to make way for a flexible, empowered, dedicated business-oriented go-getter from the thousands of them queuing up at the door.

If you can't do it right, or don't like it, get out. Don't drag the team down with you, loser.

Anything free is worth what you pay for it.
