Why would someone who is not a programmer set up such an arbitrary limit?
Probably because it's not arbitrary; most people don't live to be 110, and everybody knows you're supposed to perform sanity checking. According to a quick google search (the height of scholarly rigor,) there's maybe 300 people in the world who are older than 110 years. The most wild estimate is 600.
On the other hand, fraud is a real thing, not to mention straight up human error; somebody dies, they don't get taken out of the system, so the money keeps going out.
I doubt very highly it's a 'two digit year' storage issue.
More likely, it's perfectly correct and reasonable boundary checking; an age should never be less than 0, and never more than, what? How many people are actually older than 110? She is an extreme outlier, and proof positive that the boundary checking is working.
llegal immigrants are just regular people, so you may know some of them without realizing.
NO, illegal immigrants are people who have NO LEGAL RIGHT to be in the country.
Yes, but I believe most people think "bad hombres", not "my neighbors".
Case in point woman who voted for Trump thinking only illegal immigrants with criminal records will be deported.
Maybe you think everyone should go, but many people assume a more nuanced definition will apply.
If they came here illegally then they by definition have a criminal record. This isn't fucking rocket surgery
Try comparing your average "socialist" European country with the US and take a look at various social aspects. I'm not even talking about soft mushy things like "quality of life", just look at the expense for things like social security, internal security (i.e. police), along with factors like crime statistics, suicide rates and educational standard.
Give those Euro countries our criminal black and mexican population and see how they fair. If we did that crime in this country would be reduced by 80%, welfare would be virtually non-existent and we wouldn't have to spend trillions in unfunded liabilities. I'm sorry if that isn't PC enough for people but its the truth.

they actually need to have a degree to practice.
Sure. Said degree is not granted by a medical school though. It's granted by some other school - of chiropractic, of acupuncture, etc. I never said they were "quacks" - after all what is medicine anyway? I will state, however, that they do not follow the scientific method and cannot back up their claims with scientific studies. Even though they have thousands of testimonials from people who say they feel better. At the end of the day feeling better is what medicine is supposed to be about. But god help you if you see an acupuncturist for malignant melanoma...
Yeah, my next doctor is going to be someone who didn't go to medical school.
There are plenty of those around and there have been for a long time. Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Acupuncturists and a whole lot more. They succeed because any given illness has an 80% chance of being self limited and going away on its own. That's a phenomenal success rate for these "alternative doctors", although it's no better than if you had just stayed home.
The problem is when you have something that falls into the 20%.... we who did go to medical school don't claim to be able to save anyone, but we have documented proof that we can usually offer you a more desirable outcome than doing nothing at all.
Ok, so it's like the SCOTUS and pornography; you'll know it when you see it.
So, the followup question would be: you have teams of competitive StarCraft players who train in amounts and methods very similar to atheletes, and who play for cash prizes, sponsorship deals, and what not; what term would you say applies?
