Whenever the press covers the "data storage in DNA"-topic, they boast about huge storage capacities based he assumption that you can basically store 2 bits per base pair. But DNA has not quite evolved to be a long-term mass-storage device. DNA is rather an energy-efficient way to store relatively small amounts of data (~0.8 GB of very redundant data in a human) that exists in so many copies (billions in a human) that it doesn't matter too much if millions of those billions of copies suffer some "bit rot" over time, and also the DNA storage needs a living organism around it to sustain constantly ongoing activities to repair or sort out damaged data. Also, DNA is meant to be variable over time, as mutation is important for ongoing success of a species.
I don't think that DNA based storage will ever beat simple, anorganic storage in terms of providing reliable long-term mass storage. It's just not optimized for that purpose.
You forgot to mention the billions of Euro that the EU spends on aid payments to support specifically the structurally weak areas of Europe - including Spain.
If Spain wasn't in the EU, their clever youth would still leave the country for a better career abroad - but Spain wouldn't get anything back.
Or do you think that in a nationalist euphoria, spanish youngsters would suddenly decide to stay in their sucking local job market if Spain left the EU?
BTW: A colleague of mine relocated from Germany to Spain (for the warmer weather). He still works for the same German company - just remotely. So he at least supports the spanish economy by buying stuff where he now lives. If Spain wasn't in the EU, such a relocation might have been too cumbersome to do it just for the sake of warmer weather.
If I hadn't commented already, I would mod the parent post up.
Sure, some minor adjustments had to be made of the decades, as we want our source code to be compatible with at least the penultimate C++ ISO standard. But other than this, the software still runs fine on different hardware, different compilers than even existed 20 years ago.
Just because you are unable to cope with C++'s richness of features does not mean it is a bad thing.
After all, C++ is the one language that
