The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Thanks. Indeed I don't jump off bridges just because it's especially easy on this particular bridge or many people have done so before. Not even the lemmings really do that. Smile | :)

I have started to ignore languages which are interpreted or are advertised as being especially noob-friendly on 8 bit machines. Especially the 'noob-unfriendly' things (like type safety) usually are supposed to help you and I have no interest in learning how to bypass them or constantly discussing why it's a bad idea to bypass them.
At least artificial intelligence already is superior to natural stupidity
