Stop writing Rust linked list libraries!

Don’t write a Rust linked list library: they are hard to do well, and usually useless.

Use VecDeque, which is great. If you actually need more than VecDeque can do, use one of the handful of libraries that actually offer a significantly more useful API.

If you are writing your own data structure, check if someone has done it already, and consider slotmap or generation_arena, (or maybe Rc/Arc).

Army of Thieves (2021)

A prequel, set before the events of Army of the Dead, which focuses on German safecracker Ludwig Dieter leading a group of aspiring thieves on a top secret heist during the early stages of the zombie apocalypse.

In the evening Alice, Esme, and I watched Army of Thieves. I liked the movie and give it a 7.5 out of 10.
