When I was 5, I had managed to break all pentagon encryptions; but I'm still not gonna tell you who the second gunman on the grassy knoll was, because you are all too dumb to figure it out yourself. When I was 5 and a half, i had successfully written a program called Linux, but that hoebag Linux Torvolds stole my sourcecode and stuffed me into a trashcan, so he got all the credit for it.
    Excellent.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
