Your reasoning makes sense, since that is also the reason for the prohibition against mixing milk with cow meat.
I don't think I could step back into the stone-age IDE's and features of Java,
Compared to C#? This is how we know you're trolling.
If something came along to replace or reduce programming on the client side, JS usage could shrink quickly.
WebAssembly. It's supported by most major browsers (experimentally) and has a W3C working group ironing out the details.
do you think a law banning having sexual intercourse with your menstruating wife has no motive?
I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm having trouble thinking of a motive for this one.
They will eventually become another IBM. I was trying to think of a real tangible product that IBM made and sold just the other day. Do they?
They sell more mainframes now than they did in 1970, believe it or not. One z13 can support 8,000 Linux VMs simultaneously. Cool looking box, too.
How the hell do you reproduce a climate study anyway? Where are the controls?
John Christy has been doing that for over 30 years. For example, he wanted to know if the temperature record was accurate or not. So he developed a secondary way to measure temperature (with satellites). That is one example for you to get the feel, he's done the same thing in other areas of climate science.
Happens all the time. If a person commits a crime against country A and they are in country B, country A may well ask country B to hand them over. If it happens or the details of it vary based off of the specific countries and their treaties, called extradition treaties. For example the US and North Korea? Ya not happening. There are no extradition treaties between those two, and the governments hate each other. so nobody is getting handed over. However EU nations? Extremely strong extradition treaties. If you commit a crime against Germany from France, Germany will have France arrest you and ship you over to stand trial.
The majority of nations have extradition treaties of some level with each other since they don't want criminals able to run off and hide from justice. It has been a thing for a long time.
In every business scenario I've dealt with, it is simply impossible to protect against every threat and every zero-day exploit that comes down the pipe
A lot of the exploits we've seen haven't been zero-days or complex attacks. They've been low-hanging fruit that would never be left open by an admin like you.
