Tech Industry Autism General - "We're not cavemen! We have technology!"

I've seen lots of interesting discourse about Silicon Valley and the tech industry as a whole in the threads about the Open-Source Community and the James Damore case, so I figured it would be nice to have a thread about lol-content relating to the industry in general.

Let's start off with a classic Stallman-ism:

The nominee is quoted as saying that if the choice of a sexual partner were protected by the Constitution, "prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia" also would be. He is probably mistaken, legally--but that is unfortunate. All of these acts should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness.

Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today.

For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).

I use an ad blocker so I forgot just how many ads YT has.

It's a lot worse than when I started using the ad blocker.

And wow is it really annoying to have a video suddenly and randomly cut off by ads. At least TV had a transition.

I use Vanced and refused to check if it had updates because the ui for the mobile app got much worse apparently. Boy I didn't need to update to find out how YouTube works around Vanced. Bunch of banner ads and "stealthy" preview links to what look like everyday video links. This is trash.

Have you tried NewPipe? You'll need to install it from the developer's site, or the excellent F-Droid alternative free software app store. Highly recommended. Plays videos, on screen or in the background, with whatever speed settings you want. Nothing else.

JavaScript:
// is-positive-integer/index.js

var passAll = require('101/pass-all')
var isPositive = require('is-positive')
var isInteger = require('is-integer')

module.exports = passAll(isPositive, isInteger)
