Patrick Stewart Plays Every Annoying Person on an Airplane

Jimmy Kimmel invited Sir Patrick Stewart to come on Jimmy Kimmel Live to
play five irritating types of people that you might have encountered on an
airplane. 

The skit is called "The Most Annoying People on the Plane," and Stewart
hilariously portrays a number of different people, including ones who won't
stop talking to you; who will crawl over you to go to the bathroom; who
bring their own disgusting food and eat it next to you; hw...

AndroidOne must be a thing since CyanogenMod, Microsoft, and Samsung are all developing alternatives for it

But what makes the phone powerful is not just the CapEx of the hardware which is cheap

It is the10,000 servers at the data centers and the services and software they are running that brings true value to the device

The '90s are back.

They’re back in fashion, they’re back in music, and they are most certainly back in technology.

Not an email to be seen
I'm thinking of my vacation,
And I'm feeling quite serene.

But code is flowing from this swirling storm inside
Cannot keep it in, Google knows I tried!

Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good SWE you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know!

Learning Go, learning Go
Won't put it off anymore
Learning Go, learning Go
Writing code that I adore!

I don't care
What they're going to say
I'll program in Go,
The code never bothered me anyway!

It's funny how the language
Is actually so small
And the bugs like use-after-free
Can't happen now at all!

It's time to see what's in the Tour
To test the Playground and the tools
Type safe, fast builds, concurrency!
I'm free!

Learning Go, learning Go
I'm reading golang.org
Learning Go, learning Go
You'll see my jobs on Borg!

Here at work
And in the Cloud
Let the Go code run!

Go import locates all the packages I need
And generating build rules with such speed!
And one thought crystallizes while I code so fast—
I'm never going back, the past is in the past!

Learning Go, learning Go
And I'll teach it to my whole team
Learning Go, learning Go
It's fulfilling all my dreams!

Here at work
And on my free days
I'll program in Go,
The code never bothered me anyway!

Sing along with the original:
