    What are you talking about!
    Okay, I admit, i've had enough. At this rate, i'll miss new years.


    Global variables + goto eliminates the need for functions, and arguments to functions. You don't have the overhead of a function call, no copy-constructors are called... no subtile errors, stack overflows, etc etc.

    Well your universe is wrong. I'm not going to debate this, but there is never a place in C or C++ for void main. If you want a void main, use Java. Otherwise use int main.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Code:
    int value = 100;
    
    bool sarcasm(){
    
        cout << "i use bool main(). I am serious!" << value << " % serious!" << endl;
    
        return true;
    
    }

    that's because the compiler sees functions and variables as the same thing (I think), in a weird way. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    They also say that you shouldn't make operators do things that aren't related to how the operator works with native types, but what does outputting and inputting data (<< and >> ) have to do with left and right bitshifts?
    It doesn't pertain to bitshifts BUT they work like arrows. It shows where the text goes. Just imagine this:

    cout represents the screen. cout<<"message". "message" goes to cout.

    cin represents what the user types in. cin>>x. The user's input goes into x.

    The same goes for fstream too.
