    If you think about it...

    # = 1/2 step up //in music
    b = 1/2 step down //in music
    ++ = one step up //in the C/++/# language
    -- = one step down

    Therefore:

    C = 1
    C# = 1.5
    C++ = 2

    Therefore C++ must be better than C#.

    hm... well... actually, C++ is only 2 AFTER you used it, while C# is 1.5 right when you use it

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    C = 1

    C++ = 2

    I beg to differ. You see, you interpret this totally wrong. You have to do it like this:

    C = 1st Place
    C# = 1.5st Place
    C++ = 2nd Place

    You see, C RULES!!!

    No, C becomes C++ after it's incremented. Sheesh! ++ is one of the first operators you learn in C! Even n00bs know:

    c++ means c incremented once, or c += 1.

    Simply put, even the "joke" about "It should be ++C." is incorrect.
    My statement is correct: First there was C. Now, since it already
    exists, it is indeed a post increment, thus, C++.

    Question:

    C++(2)%C#(1.5) = 333333333333333(...)

    so where does C% come in as a language!? I want to invent it! it can be 3333333333333333333333333333333333333 times better than C!
