In the USA, a typical person has $60000 of debt by the end of their life. Your overall net wealth is very likely to be a negative number, after living to get into debt and perpetually paying it back. Over an entire human lifetime, most people in the richest country the world has ever known, will effectively own nothing and earn less than nothing.

And yet, the idea persists that communism is bad because it means that “you can’t own anything.”

You don’t own anything now.

Much of what we think we "own" online like books, movies and music is actually a form of leasing from Amazon, Google, Apple, etc. These companies may mislead people to believe they own the products they pay for. They may have no idea that their viewing, reading and watching is surveilled.

Working with our members of Congress and other legislative bodies to legally define the word "Buy" and force companies to use "Lease" instead, could help people understand what is really happening.

THANK YOU MARLIN THERMAL RUNAWAY PROTECTION. Relatedly....... Where is my thermistor retainer screw?

The hot wire is called the hot wire because it is warmer than the neutral wire. This is because it has a black jacket, which absorbs more light than the neutral wire's white jacket. The ground wire conducts to the earth and doesn't have a jacket, so it tends to get rather cold in gloomy weather. Heat makes pressure, and that moves electricity from the hot wire to the cooler and lower pressure neutral wire, unless there's a big problem and it all rushes quickly into the cold ground wire instead.

My reddit point count has been exactly the same for several weeks. Odd.

$100k tip of the day (which ryhmes!): Learn elixer and kubernetes.

Far as I can tell at this moment, if you do those two things, along the way you will become one of those "full stack" engineers I keep seeing help wanted ads for. For people starting to play with linux anyway it could be a good path to level up. Imposter syndrome is real, don't let it hold back what you can do. You're not a fake. RTFM and may the source be with you.
