    wow. my bad, my apologies. is fixed. (But also shame on me for not giving more details...)

    I think it will be very hard for OP to find any show that compares to The Last of Us, since it was such a top of the line season. The Last of Us really stands out head and shoulders over anything I can remember seeing in a long time. I would not get my hopes up for anything else to be as good.

    I mean ... my opinion is The Last of Us season 1 is the best season of a show of the last ten years.

    Nothing any of these people do is worth 4x what you make. Just like Jeff Bezos is not worth 10000 times what I make. Capitalism needs winners and losers in order to work. We're the losers.

    How does that justify earning 4x+ what I make?

    (tbh its been a while since I read it)

    In any case, I teach lunch'n learn sessions on clean code at my company. Would never endorse taking the words of any one author as god. It always practical that books are guidelines, and any and all forced rules must be documented in Confluence. Confluence is god :)

    you guys are doing a bit of a straw man if you ask me. I advocate for clean code. but the number of lines per function is always a guideline/code smell and not a hard rule.

    If someone at your company made a rule "never write a function that’s longer than four lines" please slap them for me.

    I'm as green as they come, but unless were are enacting laws across the board to make carbon emissions illegal, then I don't care what crypto uses up.

    We need laws that force 100% of of people in 100% of industries to stop polluting. Now way I'm singling out one single Taylor Swift or one single Bitcoin.
