    Plus who wants to listen to the crappy sound from those tiny drive-in speakers that you hang on your window? I want a real sound system.

    Used to, they would assign the audio to a certain frequency, so that you could pick it up on the radio. I'm not sure if they do that anymore, though.
    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;
    }

    That's exactly how the one I visited worked.

    Sounds like a classy place. If you really wanted to mess with them you could bring along some raw fruit and a box cutter.

    >> There is a drive in not too far (like a mile) from my house. It is barely holding on. Though since the latest "we aren't really closing this time" I've seen more cars there.

    I've never understood the whole allure of the drive-in, anyway. Granted, back in the day, cars didn't have A/C, picture and sound was total crap, but even now I wouldn't want to go to one. Who wants to sit in their car and stare at a screen that's a half a mile away?
    You don't go for the movie

    I've never been to a drive-in movie but if I did I'd thoroughly expect to turn my head one way and see Richie Cunningham eating fries then turn it the other way and see The Fonz smooching some chick with a beehive.

    Nice.
    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;
    }

    The way he waggles his own do while he's at it is unforgettable -- that classic shot from the back with the leather jacket still on.

    I can't believe Henry Winkler died because of crack.

    What are you talking about? He isn't even dead.
    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;
    }

    SOB. What's with Rick Astley, anyway? Seems like every time somone wants to post a gag on YouTube they cut into that song.
    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;
    }
