The senior programmer told me it wouldn’t be efficient to check for division by zero.
It’s 24c outside but 30c inside. Should be fun sleeping tonight. It was 28 at 9am this morning. I woke up in a pile of sweat after dreaming that baby ducks were eating my fingers.

In a world reeling with violence, destruction and tribal hatred, tonight I stand with those brave folks who endure tragedy in their muffin and coffee misunderstandings. Or getting the wrong flavour of Ice Cap. Or having the cream cheese unevenly applied on the bagel. Which btw, was not supposed to be toasted. You told that kid twice, didn’t you. When will they listen. When will the sorrow stop.
Group says Supreme Court decision gives people right to refuse ‘medically invalid’ material
From the article:
“The Supreme Court has decided that religious beliefs are so sacrosanct that they can even trump scientific fact. This was made clear when they allowed Hobby Lobby to claim certain contraceptives were abortifacients, when in fact they are not, “ said Greaves. “Because of the respect the Court has given to religious beliefs, and the fact that our beliefs are based on best available knowledge, we expect that our belief in the illegitimacy of state-mandated ‘informational’ material is enough to exempt us, and those who hold our beliefs, from having to receive them.”
The right of employers to mandate orgies in the woods, for example. In no way am I endorsing that. It’s a matter of conscience.
"EDMONTON – After two fires in the span of nine months, the Bissell Centre Thrift Shoppe had lost everything.
“It’s been hard,” said spokesperson Devin Komarniski.
“We were just recovering from the first fire and getting our operations dialed in again. We are not only selling items there to create revenues to support the programs and services here in the inner city but also, it’s our sorting centre for free clothing here in the Community Closet that goes to those who are homeless who have nothing.”
More than 100,000 articles of clothing and household goods were destroyed, but Monday, the organization launched a two-week online campaign to #RestoreBissell.”
Imagine you’re a waitress working in Niagara Falls. Aretha Franklin comes in and orders a cheese burger to go. Then Aretha Franklin sits down in your restaurant and proceeds to eat the to go cheese burger. You know the rules, so you immediately tell Aretha Franklin she can’t eat her to go cheese burger inside the restaurant.
You go home thinking you put that lady in her place. Then you read the national news.
I guess it’s forgivable. But don’t ever tell me you’ve never watched the Blues Brothers.
A freelance developer was just trying to enjoy lunch with her son when she overheard IBM executives openly talking about how they weren’t going to hire young women.
When I first saw this on the daily dot website I was a little skeptical because it was a single sourced anecdote on a questionable website.
However, my experience in the IT industry is such that I find this banter not only plausible but beyond likely. I sat through a few interviews with female candidates where inappropriate questions were asked about their family planning or plans. I think those type of questions are illegal in Alberta, and probable most other places as well.
Still, it would be nice to have some corroboration of who these guys are and their positions, and whether they will be attending some human resources information sessions in the near future.
