new programming language where you get neither a garbage collector, nor a borrow checker, nor manual memory management

if you allocate a variable it's there now. you can't deallocate it now. what if you need it later? seems silly to remove things from ram if you might need them again later

when the program runs out of computer's memory it opens this page in your default browser google.com/search?q=buy+ram+on

i think instead of releasing new computer hardware every half a year that is twice as expensive, consumes twice the amount of power and is slightly more powerful, we should simpley bully software developers into optimizing their fucking programs

ADHD is weird because on the one hand, it is important to stress that it's not a disease. It's just a different type of brain anatomy and functionality.

People with ADHD get bored of repetitive tasks and routine and constantly have to search for solutions off the beaten path and who also don't tolerate nonsense rituals and hierarchies simply because of tradition. Having this type of people around is absolutely essential no matter if we're talking about a group of 20 people that live in the woods or about a globally interlinked industrial society of 8 billions.

And on the other hand, you constantly have to stress and explain to people who don't have ADHD, especially medical professionals and therapists, just how debilitating of a condition it is to have in our society.

How do you explain executive dysfuntion, a constant need to stim, depression, anxiety, rejection sensitivity, brain fog, shifting focus, hyperfocus, time blindness, motor skill problems and all the other trash it comes with to someone who has never had to deal with these things?

And how much of a struggle is it to get proper recognition of those ADHD-specific challenges you face in everyday life and proper help and support for them?
