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.

Where do you see that in the documentation? I don't even see + in the documentation.

And what idiot thought that was a good idea? WTF | :WTF:

Time to find a new language; this one's becoming VB. Dead | X|


Edit: I finally found it; it's not documented with String; what a POS. Thumbs Down | :thumbsdown:
I'm fairly sure that no self-respecting C# professional uses it that way.
