Ouch.

Like me went for a job interview and the interview asked me a serious question : what's the meaning for ls -lrth

I just told her, if possible, to get somebody who knows something to interview me than throw elementary questions, as I learnt about ls like 17 ++ years ago and promptly forgot about the expansion, but know how to leverage it 100%.

I've told my wife (USC) that I dont' want to go to the USA until Trump is out of power. She doesn't understand why.

Why indeed. Who's to say things won't continue to get worse? After all, they've been (un-)steadily getting worse for the last few years...

As a suggestion for those travelling a US spouse (as a non US Citizen). Have your US spouse carry your mobile/laptop and have her change the passwords on your social media accounts (make them joint). They CANNOT deny a USC entry for refusing to open FB/phones - maybe delay and seize the devices but that would be extreme. Of course assuming your spouse is ok with this.

What if you don't know your passwords?

Would they have you reset them in front of them and then login?

The social media posts and reddit posts on this from travellers seem to indicate it's either cooperate or have them shove their brown shirted jack boot up your arse and send you back.
