> English is the javascript of languages: full of warts and enforcing a status quo that sucks but everyone has to learn it because this is the world we live in.
> Esperanto would be like Haskell: beautifully pure and regular but no one uses it except for a passionate community of die-hard zealots.
> Romance languages would be like scripting languages (Python, Ruby, lua, etc.): once you know one the others get really easy.
> Greek would be like Lisp: had a lot of influence on current languages, dwindled a bit, but is still around.
> Biology is what happens when you try to decompile code written in assembler into OO language.
> True statement. I lost a finger tip in a mandolin making potatoes lyonnaise. It mostly grew back. However, it has never felt the same. It's like the nerve endings in the finger tip throw unhandled exceptions.
> A lot of therapists have a two year degree.

> Reads like it was written by GPT-3.
> At my $OLDJOB, I used ImageMagick to compare snapshots during some automated front-end testing on our public Drupal site.
> I'm perfectly happy to use my brain as an index instead of a data warehouse. As in, I don't bother committing to memory things that I can reach out and grab if they fall out of my "cache".
> > The problem for me now is my mental index can suffer from link rot.
> s/Browser/Chrome/, please.
> Spaces in filenames were a mistake to begin with.
> Spaces are used to separate parameters in the command line. There's also no real need for filenames to support spaces.
> If I have some solution that can solve some major $PROBLEM, but a side effect of that solution is that some small group of people "get paid to do nothing", I'm completely OK with that.
