    Math has very little to do with coding

    However, logic and problem solving have a lot to do with it as does abstract thinking (something that seems to be increasingly rare among humans).

    I have observed all kinds of generally intelligent people fail to be able to manipulate even so called "code builders" because they failed to have a sufficient ability to understand the underlying connections of such systems. While they might generally be able to cut and paste some things, taking it beyond that was simply impossible. This is why I generally favor coding over visual programming. At some point there is a difference between those who get it and those who don't. Having "easy to use" programming systems only makes it harder for the people who know what they are doing.

    massive flash burns.

    2 H2 + O2 = 2 H2O

    The product of hydrogen combustion is water vapor.

    If such an unlikely event were ever to occur, someone standing nearby is likely to get a refreshing facial and walk off feeling 10 years younger.

    Now contrast that with a Tesla burning up toxic battery chemicals in your garage:

    Trump is what most of the electorate wants, and all of the professional politicians fear. A social liberal, a strong nationalist, and a fiscal moderate. The two party system is based on presenting extremes in order to divide the middle class electorate in half. Issues are framed in the form of Do you want to oppress women, or kill babies? with nothing in between or discussed on an intelligent level.

    Have you noticed that no social issues (gay marriage, abortion) come up in regard to Trump? That's because he's probably more like the average person in stance and his positions have long been aired (guy has been famous for 35 years, remember).

    He's clearly anti-globalist and wants to focus on America.

    Fiscally I would call him a moderate. However, because our current financing and taxation is so extreme, and so much favors the 1%, a moderate stance (one that say harkens back to the Eisenhower Era) would be seen as radical.

    The Time Donald Trump Proposed a $5.7 Trillion Wealth Tax

    One of his more memorable tax policy ideas came in 1999, when he proposed a one-time 14.25% wealth tax on those with a net worth of over $10 million. He said that the tax would raise over $5.7 trillion, wiping away the national debt.
