#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

it’s a fucking bee like are you serious

I heard a talk about hackerrank that pitched it as a great way to learn, I haven’t used it myself

Hackerrank is good for interview practice, and it’s also really hard.

Do recommend, but I’m lazy so I never do it.

Also stop claiming intellectual property shit about your stupid tumblr posts. I don’t understand why people care about someone stealing their tumblr posts and reposting them somewhere else.

Especially leftists. If you post something that is leftist and then someone shares it on other social media then THAT’S A GOOD THING. The whole point is that people share leftist ideas. If you’re leftist for the notes, then fuck you.

Anonymous said: Know any good resources/books for programming and security?

I highly recommend the ___ hacker’s handbook series. I’ve read Web Hacker’s handbook and Android hacker’s handbook and they’re both good. I’ve heard good things about the others.

For general programming, I recommend learning algorithms and datastructures in C++ too build up a solid computer science foundation. Go through a stanford or MIT CS class or two online. After that, just start making stuff.

I’m always angry for no reason now.

Gender Inequality’s Latest Victim: Flex-Time Requests -

lepus:

Nearly 70% of the study’s participants would be likely or very likely to approve the man’s request while only roughly 56.7% would approve the woman’s. Nearly one quarter of the fathers making the request were ranked extremely likable, versus only 3% of women. And 15.5% of women who wanted flex time for child care reasons were ranked “not at all” or “not very” committed compared to only 2.7% of their male counterparts.
