Abstractly.
Good software design and coding requires visualization of the problem/solution. You need to be able to see data structures and algorithms and keep a lot of information and relationships in your head.

I've left water boiling and forgotten about it at least three times, ruining two pots in the process. Once I was boiling some sugar water for a hummingbird feeder and forgot about it.

OK, to those here who think global warming is real and has human causes: what do you think we must do about it? Seriously. I've heard some pretty dangerous ideas suggested. To those who have watched An Inconvenient Truth: does it get better after the 1st 20 minutes? Because I couldn't stand it any m...
