Politics age limit Thu, Nov 18, 2021
I 100% think there should be a maximum age limit of, say 70 or 75, for all representative political offices, Supreme Court appointments, and whatnot, regardless of political party and regardless of success rate or popularity.  And NOT because old people are crazy or too old to think properly, but simply because old people are completely unrepresentative of the population at large, both in terms of culture and interests, but also in terms of population statistics.  There are more toddlers in America than there are people over 75 years old.  Octogenarians should not be deciding how to spend tax dollars or creating new laws. #politics

Double-dip usage Tue, Nov 09, 2021
I like when I can use something for two purposes.  My job requires me to write code, and Python is one of the languages I've been using lately, which is great because I also use that in my personal time.  Similarly, YAML is a "data serialization language" that works well with things like Python, but it also has the added benefit of being human-readable, so I've been using it for note-taking and whatnot. #technology
