And I'm always puzzled when others act like you can't be good at more than one thing, ie coding and law. Maybe the footballer has great math skills. Maybe the lawyer played college football but chose law as a career. Maybe the coder is great at football.

The amount of obtuse comments in this thread from anons (who I'm not yet convinced aren't all one and the same person, but maybe not) are quite frankly amazing, so while I'm at it I'll add that further upthread people are "who", not "which", that the use of depersonalizing language such as that is bothersome, and that people who complain of strawmen should, at a minimum, not launch blistering ad hominem attacks. That Mathew even put up with it is a show to how kind (or patient) he is.
