I was reading John chapter 2 a while ago. I would just like to share my thoughts on some things I read.
The word this
In verse 19 Jesus says
“destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up”.
Then verse 21 says that he was speaking about the “temple of his body”. (I’m a programmer. I want my periods outside the quote … and they don’t look bad with the font I am using! Hmmm.)

A few days ago, I learned about Mattias Petter Johansson or MPJ from reading the article “11 Programmers Who Changed the Game”. I found it on facebook, posted by John Sonmez of simpleprogrammer.com.
I really liked this statement attributed to him:
“Are we forever cursed to do this tooling rodeo, where we try to hold on to the job market for dear life? Constantly learning new tools as they pop up all over the place like a bizarre game of whack-a-mole?
Well, instead of trying to predict the future, which we as humans are really bad at (take a look at Sci-Fi from the 60’s), instead you should learn the stuff that doesn’t change around a lot. Learn the things that have been known since the 70’s and has been true since.
Learn programming in general.”
