Did someone ever notice how un-American Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again" is? It's a full admission that the American dream isn't working for many people, a complete reactionary statement which expresses that the present is broken with a longing for the past.

Illogical Nonsense

"I am wary of all papers with the term 'Monad' in it. I've stated it before, if your operators are solely determined by unit and bind, I cannot trust you're thinking straight. I.e.,

> unit: a -> M a
> bind: M b -> (b -> M a) -> M a

It is trivial to note that any result object is a value in 'M a' and, in the absence of observers, you cannot state anything meaningful about that value. (Absurdly, for any 'a', 'M a' might denote a singleton set - everything is mapped to the same value - for instance.)

So, sure, you can chain effect types but you do not know anything in a formal mathematical sense about the result value.

I have already stated that Haskell's IO paradigm predominantly relies on the/this fact that a Monad acts as a logical sink. Everything is supposedly pure since you cannot even express what an impure computation even does (worse, it is categorical mathematical sloppiness which makes it work.) At least, Clean's uniqueness types gives you that; moreover, that extends to formal efficient treatment of 'impure' data structures."

Building a car that is powered by formic acid. That is the ambition of Team FAST, a new student team from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Since formic acid can store hydrogen, an environmentally-friendly fuel, it has more benefits than existing hydrogen or electric powered cars. Today the team presents the first concrete step: a scale model, a meter in size, which is able to drive on formic acid alone.

If you read a lot of science, you are a disaster tourist.
