What's the bet that america wouldn't have even gotten involved in WWII if Germany had have half-assed the bombing of England? Cos, you know...
Signal is pretty good.
I am not a C# programmer, but I don't think LINQ gets enough credit for bringing MS-centric devs really far into the world of functional programming and making it look easy with relatively sensible function names.

Of course this would not fix existing problems like psychological manipulation of voters and fearmongering. It might make things more fluid as people could vote on issues rather than parties. How would we implement something like this? Voting on smaller bills that have a timeline for public consumption? Maybe having the public write laws is a terrible idea, but looking at some of the garbage the US Congress churns out, I really wonder if it’d be that much worse.

Thought about democracy last night, specifically the idea of representatives. Since modern democracies arose, various technologies and social conditions have arisen that are not taken into consideration in any existing forms of government. For example, we have the Internet which makes physical location less of a constraint in having discussions. It also makes possible accumulation of votes on issues at national scale in almost real time (though this has yet to be done securely).

How. HOW. How can namesakes of mine CONTINUALLY sign up for important looking things (e.g. utilities, insurance) with MY email address? How stupid/careless are these guys? Seriously? Some clown in the UK, one in Texas, there seems to be one in the US northeast too. It happens almost weekly. I know they're not in my email because 2FA, fresh passwords etc.
