The One Thing Super Majority of CS Majors Do NOT Know

by Larry Chiang on July 5, 2016

Code kiddies. Look inside your wallet. Are you using a debit card.
If you are, punch yourself in the face. 
If the debit card is in your name, take the other fist that isn’t sore from cranial contact and punch your nagen. 
Look, a semi pro CS major can just take Experian’s, Trans Union’s and Equifax’s credit reports and write on them like you write on paper. This should be obvious, but let us review if this is not obvious.

Credit code, “1”. Like computer science, the credit bureaus use 1’s for ontime, 2’s for 30-days late. #Duck9

So, given this truth what would you want your credit report to exactly say.

So when you use a debit card, you are exposed to “Gotcha Capitalism” where junk fees abound and counterintuitive calculations extract fees from YOU. For example, authorization holds
Associate 1’s to your credit report. credit bureaus use 1’s for on-time payment of an amount owed between $15.oo-$2000 paid-on-time, 2’s for 30-days late, etc. #Duck9

When you have an uncollected debt, it’s credit code 9. Thus, 100% of your credit score reads “screwed bc of one item in arrears” #Duck9

Avoid credit code 9. Duck, 9’s. #Duck9

A Jedi can just take Experian’s credit report and write on it like you write on paper using #PObox105281

So, what are you going to “write”
Tell me in the comments what exactly you’re going to do
