What are the differences between Facebook, Twitter and Quora users?
Answer by CamMi Pham:
Facebook makes you hate the people you already know.
Twitter makes you love the people you have never met.
Quora makes you realize that there are some smart people left.
How do I beat the fear of not being able to code?
Answer by Zoe Wolfe:
I’ll let you in on a secret: almost everyone feels this way. There are so many languages and concepts that it’s impossible to know everything right off the top of your head.
Remember that it’s ok to go slow and it’s more than ok to look on the internet for help. It’s more important to have an understanding of what you’re doing before you attempt to write it than to be able to sit down at a computer and type random bash commands into the terminal really fast.
If you’re unfamiliar with a language, do a few tutorials before trying to write something. If you’re trying to write an algorithm for class, try mapping it out on paper until you have a solid understanding of what you’re doing. If you forget basic syntax, don’t be afraid of looking at an API. And when in doubt, try googling the problem. 9 times out of 10, someone else has had the same question and 8 times out of 10, someone has already answered it.
And one last word of advice: fake it till you make it. Keep your head up, look confident, tell yourself that you’re a good programmer, and eventually you’ll start feeling like a good programmer too.
If you injure a bug, should you kill it or let it live and not die?
Answer by Matan Shelomi:
Looks like the philosophers and theists have made their cases. As far as entomologists are concerned, insects do not have pain receptors the way vertebrates do. They don’t feel “pain,” but may feel irritation and probably can sense if they are damaged. Even so, they certainly cannot suffer because they don’t have emotions. If you heavily injure an insect, it will most likely die soon: either immediately because it will be unable to escape a predator, or slowly from infection or starvation. Ultimately this crippling will be more of an inconvenience to the insect than a torturous existence, so it has no “misery” to be put out of but also no real purpose anymore. If it can’t breed anymore it has no reason to live.
In other words, I have not answered your question because, as far as the science is concerned, neither the insect nor the world will really care either way. Personally, though, I’d avoid doing more damage than you’ve already done. 1) Maybe the insect will recover, depending on how damaged it is. 2) Some faiths do forbid taking animal lives, so why go out of your way to kill? 3) You’ll stain your shoe.
What is a coder’s worst nightmare?
Answer by Jorge Irun:
Going to Stackoverflow and seeing someone’s post with the exact same question you have been trying to get answered. Posted a year ago with no answers.
Is there any book, which has all the codes for all the data structures? At least for all the tree data structures?
Answer by Brian Bi:
This site has code for pretty much all the algorithms and data structures I imagine a competitive programmer could ever need:

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.
A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.
Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.
