meal = meal + meal * tax
total = meal + meal * tip

output = round(total,2)
print("\nTOTAL\n")
print(date.strftime("%I:%M:%S %m/%d/%Y"),'\n$',output,'\n')

Users should be at least using a password manger such as "Lastpass.com" or "1password.com".  Offline password manager recommended is "Password Safe", designed by renowned security technologist Bruce Schneier.  
When creating a new password today, use passwords that are 30+ characters in length to make bruteforce password cracking exponentially more difficult.  This can easily be done when using a password manger.  What about the password used to access the passw…
