This just turned my entire understanding of nutrition upside down. Apparently, you simply can't universally say which food is "healthy", it varies per person. Literally, ice cream can be more healthy for a given person than rice.

There are so-o-o many programming talks and articles starting on the same premise, "We wrote something and over time it got difficult to maintain, so we decided… to rewrite it in another language".
Why are you so sure the problem is the *language* and not you? Could it be that you just suck at engineering? I'd understand if the language was notoriously hard, like C++, or very new, like, say, Elm. But if you do stuff in Java/Python/Go then there's proof out there that those generally work.

Took me a few months, but I've finally finished this piece on post-work society: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/jan/19/post-work-the-radical-idea-of-a-world-without-jobs

And I'm over the moon that Mark Williams is the champion! Was always my favorite, so I rooted for him since Ronnie lost his match to Carter.
