Quotation of the Day

I believe that we, as a whole world, are going through a transition and these so-called “bleak times” are necessary to go through in order to get to a much, much, much better place. The old way is giving way to a new way and it started a long time ago, the transition, and more and more things — horror stories — have come to light and people have been dealing with these things over the last decades and more things will come out. These wrongs are going to start getting righted and on the other side of this transition, I think, we’ll find really great times, an end to suffering and negativity. This is what I believe and hope for.

Why Americans only use a fork to eat: The short history of US dining utensils — Quartz

On June 25, 1633, when governor John Winthrop, a founding father of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, took out a fork, then known as a “split spoon,” at the dinner table, the utensil was dubbed “evil” by the clergy. They said that the only thing worthy of touching “God’s food” was fingers, according to Colonial American History Stories – 1215 – 1664: Forgotten and Famous Historical Events by Paul R. Wonning.

Real programmers have no use for managers. Managers are a necessary evil. They exist only to deal with personnel bozos, bean counters, senior planners and other mental midgets.
