There is always a YET...for everyone... absolutely everyone.
Is the plural of YET YETI?

I don't do dead languages, like Latin, or COBOL.

I found Latin easier to understand than the stream of near gibberish of "conversational Spanish".  At least I learned a lot about English fro my Latin classes (aside from trying to make Hannibal carry his elephants across the Alps). 

And I'll go with Fortran or Basic over Cobol any day (well, "back then" of course).  I mastered each and even helped my classmates in COBOL, but I never liked it.  COBOL is structured, Fortran is logical. 

To this day, I often solve problems using flow charts, and I associate them with Fortran.

Quick story.  In an office completely unrelated to computer programming, the Boss mentioned the Holiday Party the next day would have teens of co-workers attending and to try and think of things that might keep them busy. 

So I wrote a "hangman" game in Fortran in an hour with a 100 word random matrix.  The teens loved it, my Boss was impressed as Hell, and *I* got stuck doing "that new computer management stuff" for the next couple years.

I was Radm. Grace Hopper's driver one day back in 1988. She had helped develop COBOL and she told she was stunned to realize that it would out live her. "Just a program to make do until real programs were ready."

  That is mostly a fear of people who watch too much Fox News.
my "YET" was the universal "YET" to be applied to any and all occasions dealing with anything in particular. For gun owners always a YET, for cooks always a YET, for motor cycle riders always a YET. To be applied to anyone who steadfastly declares that for the general population if a person follows A,B,C almost always they will always avoid the YET. It is an unsubstantiated claim that inevitably is whacked upside the noggin with a YET.

An "admirable" person, and how special you got to be near her.  I can understand why you like COBOL.  :)

I hate COBOL. It's for computer literates.

If you heard someone say COBOL was a good program, yes.

"If its not done by sunrise I'll cut your balls off."

The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

No one is safe - ever. If it's not guns it'll be something else, like heart attacks or auto accidents or meteors (or gringos?) falling from the sky. Maybe self-driving cars will decrease the number of auto-related deaths and injuries, but nothing comparable is likely going to be available for guns, since self-shooting guns won't work well. The gun nuts don't like the idea of biometric safeties for guns, either, so that's unlikely to help.

I figure I won't be safe until I'm covered by six feet of dirt.
