I put unsure but lean towards well dressed men. This because I dress for women most of the time, and just like men, they don’t necessarily verbally like the same things that they respond to.

You’re raising a billionaire if and only if they farm out the actual reading to children in other countries and split the $10 90/10, then replace you with new parents when you try to rein them in with regulation.

In 2020 I’d have bonus questions asking about e.g. time series data and other specific cases that relational databases aren’t the best option for, but it’s ok if you’re not familiar with them.

I, just can’t picture anyone asking any of these definitions. I’d just talk through some features, tell you how the data will need to be queried, and then ask you to come up with a schema that is more or less normalized.

Sarcasm is definitely a thing in Japanese. People laugh at sarcastic jokes all the time here. Your spoken Japanese probably just isn't very good or you don't have the pop culture knowledge to make it work.

One of the smallest & most entertaining things my kids do is whenever I had them a bowl/plate (of snacks, meal, dessert), they inevitably check each other’s portion to confirm neither has more or “something better.” It’s inconsequential, I know, but gives me such joy watching it

Generally speaking, if I really like a girl I want to go to work on her with zero distractions. It’s game time, suit the fuck up.

Strong agree. It’s a colossal waste of time. I don’t think it has any real potential

I’m, seriously, past my sell by date in this business. There are still untold trillions to be made using a well-placed CRUD app using 2008 technologies
