In case you were still living under the impression that you had any privacy at all, get over it.
I'm old enough to remember when you had to face the shopkeeper when you bought things that were embarrassing (use your imagination). You'd stand there, trying to hide your shame, making sure you bought a candy bar or some gum so it looked like the real purchase was just a casual add-on or an impulse purchase. Nowadays, you can just order whatever stuff you want from Amazon, and it even comes in a plain brown box and nobody judges you. Young people today don't know how good they've got it.
DEBT. A Chilling Bedtime Story
Probably not a good one to read to your kids. Enjoy! And if you do enjoy it, please share and all that.
Please, listen and understand. Not you because I know you know these things. This is for every company that is trying to force me to choose an 8 character password with one upper case, one digit, etc. Listen. The characters DON'T matter! The length does. It doesn't matter what 8 characters a person chooses, you can crack that in a few minutes. "itsabeautifulsunnyday", on the other hand, will take billions of years.
Dear American friends, I know 2020 seems like 2 years away right now and today, you've got to vote in your mid-terms. However, consider this guy, Andrew Yang, is running for President on a platform of Universal Basic Income, a topic every politician will eventually need to consider. Note that I'm not suggesting you vote for this guy, but that you convince other politicians that we need some new thinking for the future, and unless magic happens, UBI will have to be part of that new thinking.
The emacs editor has a psychotherapist doctor built in. That should tell you something. If you use emacs long enough, you're going to need a shrink. #Linux
I kid. I'm a kidder.
Sorry to tell you this, but people who claim to be undecided voters are actually usually lying. They know exactly how they're going to vote. They just don't want to tell you. Maybe they're secretly ashamed. Maybe they worry about being judged one way or another. Whatever the reason, they probably aren't being entirely truthful.
