Just a little note for , , and : I view follows from accounts I don't recognize as belonging to private individuals as inherently spammy.

I don't believe for a moment that a business account is interested in anything I might say, so their only reason for following me is to get my attention and hopefully a hit on their website.

Don't even bother. If you're running an account for a , , or you should fuck off.

capitalism cannot be fixed by inventing new currencies, fixation on currency is the problem.

Pay someone to repeatedly poke you with a stick and say "remember Back to the Future mate? Remember Back to the Future mate?" while you watch Tron Legacy and I reckon you will have accurately simulated the experience of watching Ready Player One, which looks like a steaming bag of basic nerd pandering shite and the kind of thing that only the sort of awful people who wear Doctor Who and Zelda mash-up t-shirts could possibly get behind

Google’s true origin partly lies in CIA and NSA research grants for mass surveillance

“The intelligence community hoped that the nation’s leading computer scientists could take non-classified information and user data, combine it with what would become known as the internet, and begin to create for-profit, commercial enterprises to suit the needs of both the intelligence community and the public.”

@starbreaker If you end up in another one, please consider saying, "Given that linear time is the lower bound for sort, wouldn't it be smarter to ask me about an algorithm only 1 rank down who's methodology I might reuse, as opposed to what people asked when merge sort was considered 'too complex'? I don't have a great description of how to do blitting in software either, no one does it anymore."

If you'd like to annihilate interviews like this, I can help. :D

@starbreaker Most CS graduates don't remember that kind of useless shit TBH.

And why would it be an advantage to remember one of the worst sorting algorithms, anyway? That's just an embarrassingly shoddy interview.

Me at a job interview...

Manager: How would you implement a bubble sort algorithm given this C# array?

Me: C# arrays implement the IEnumerable interface. I would use "var sortedArray = IEnumerable.OrderBy(i => i);" to sort the array by its contents.

Manager: but that's not bubble sort.

Me: And this isn't Microsoft and you aren't paying me to re-implement the .NET framework. If you wanted a CS graduate, your job posting should have said so. Now, are you done wasting my time?

Me at a job interview

Manager: What are your weaknesses?

Me: I'm weak against physical attacks, fire, and lightning. However, I resist ice and wind, nullify holy, and reflect darkness.

#Bitcoin is wasting enormous amounts of #electricity and because of that produces massive amounts of #CO2.

Poor people aren't lazy and also being lazy doesn't mean you don't deserve a decent life.

I'm a card-carrying honest-to-goddess Pope. As such it is my privilege to bless you all in the name of my goddess and decree that everybody should immediately down tools, stop working, and go do something hedonistic.
