Phrase of the day: "headcount rationalization".

3 weeks to get a detective when someone used my wife's identity for a bail bond and car loan despite her having collected the evidence herself using CCPA data requests?

This when it took a couple of hours to get my first parking ticket in a decade while legally parked?

I spotted this nugget of actual insight buried in a comment flame war:
"You're making the classic mistake of assuming a common thread connects the people who've annoyed you in various unrelated contexts."

The official soundtrack for Tetris Effect is pretty good music to work to.

If we were perfect programmers, we'd be writing in untyped languages and pushing directly to production without peer review.

If your musical tastes include all of metal, jazz, and prog rock, then I encourage you to listen to Agent Fresco.

Video will play in 5 seconds, unless you send ten thousand dollars, in unmarked bills, to the abandoned tuna warehouse at Smuggler's Cove. Come alone at midnight.

@wakingrufus Interesting. So in this case, the boolean is implicitly an Optional<Boolean> (Java).

@polanco My original question was kind of ambiguous. I was thinking typed languages like Java that have three or more potential values for Boolean.

@polanco In some languages a boolean is a nullable object, so it's possible states are true|false|null.

While using programming languages with support for null booleans, has anybody ever encountered code that takes advantage of this property in a way that made them say, "That's neat" or "That's elegant"?

I'm thinking that answer is "no".

When I listen to pop music: Did Madonna come out with a new album? Nope; it's Lady Gaga.

How did I miss this gem: 5G wireless is causing Coronavirus and the cure is to disable LTE (4G).
