Yes, they deserve it, but it is *funny* how out of everyone that deserves a Nobel, they always find the white men.

If so, that's a brilliant way to mock the SCOTUS' fall from legitimacy, their intentional and bad faith gullibility in cases like the school-prayer case, their partisan basis for rulings. Goodness.

To my uninformed eye, the Onion's amicus brief seems to make the point that if one is taken in by parody, then they are necessarily the punchline to the joke that parody tells — as such, treating the format of the amicus brief as parody thus makes the SCOTUS itself the punchline?

I think there's a pretty big unexplored space here to use the amazingly cool features offered by cargo to help make new best practices for Rust in an academic context.

What makes duecredit a really neat tool is that it observes runtime behaviour of your program and cites what you actually use at a function-level granularity. Would it be possible to observe the result of dead-code elimination in rustc and see what features are used in your app?

In Python, tools like duecredit make this much easier to do.

What would something similar look like in Rust? Could you make a tool like `cargo cite` that collects citation metadata from your dependencies?

I'm not sure of the best solution, per se, other than possibly encouraging a bit of self-reflection about how we approach new ideas in quantum computing; encouraging a bit more curiosity about new ideas.

That's not inherently bad — new isn't an inherent good, after all. I do think, however, that that conservatism can lead us to missing opportunities to re-examine old assumptions.

Sometimes I'm amazed at the conservatism of quantum computing by comparison to other parts of tech. Classical software stacks today can often look completely different than they did five years ago, but quantum is still mostly using the same abstractions / models.

Started playing Cyberpunk 2077, and I've decided to name all of my cars Roach.

Babe, are you ok? You've barely touched your code of conduct...

I'll never make fun of dialogue between Data and the holodeck computer again.

In the old days of computing, you'd spend days working on punch cards, hand them into be loaded onto a mainframe, and then hope you didn't make an error. These days, we have CI instead.
