StackOverflow is blogging about Web3. Please put it out of its misery
  • There was a question on here recently like "Please recommend an e-commerce web application which doesn't use JavaScript" and the top response was "I don't understand what you're asking - how can you have a web application without JavaScript??‽".

  • Biden decision on future expected in coming days, and Harris is considered heir apparent

  • Project 2025′s dirty little secret that Trump doesn’t want you to know

Highlighting these divisions could let those groups know that they might be getting the opposite of what they voted for.

  • Why is the US not considered a third world country?
    • 1st world = US, NATO, and their allies.
    • 2nd world = USSR, China, the Warsaw Pact, and their allies.
    • 3rd world = everyone else.
