    This one I can probably answer. Because powerful people doing the tax evading want it to be possible.

    How is tax evasion through regular digital money transfers still possible?

    I'm most likely starting a new job in a few weeks. Their entire codebase was outsourced, and the different pieces were written by different people who had no understanding of the whole, and it'll be my job to make everything work right.

    I'll also be the only actual programmer they have working for them. At least at the start.

    From what I understand, they don't ever have proper version control set up. The person who interviewed me barely understood the difference between git and github.

    Packing a ton of my stuff into boxes, taking some to Goodwill, and putting some of my furniture on Craigslist in preparation for moving in a few weeks.

    Moving, by the way, immediately after coming home from spending a week at Pennsic. And driving four hours home on the evening of my birthday.

    And arranging for painters and flooring people to start work the day after we're moved out. So there's a better chance of selling as soon as possible.

    Also, I just had a job interview today that I think have a good shot at getting.

    God, I'm tired

    Well, he kind of did if you count the Night of the Long Knives. Not force exercised over the German people but rather internally over the Nazi party.

    And 52 percent of Americans wrongly thought Hitler had come to power through force.

    From what I understand, there's two new Switches on the horizon. A "lite" Switch for more casual, less graphically intensive games, and a more heavy duty version with a bigger cpu (possibly more memory but I'm not sure).

    My girlfriend got a Switch a while back and I like it.

    The fuel that Prometheus makes, wouldn't we just be returning the carbon to the atmosphere when we use it?

    The solution to Climate Change isn't going to be just one thing. It's going to be many things, and this needs to be one of them.

    That's fine. The bible does, in fact, define homosexuality as a sin.

    It's also my view that I am free to express without legal ramifications that the religious concept of "sin" does not necessarily equate to "immorality" and simply means "disobedience to religious doctrine".
