    600 gallons per mile

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    An abrams tank gets 400 yards per gallon and still probably has hotter exhaust.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    Yeah. And it does a much better job at taking people off drugs.

    Yeah, after you've been machine gunned and blasted to bits with what's left of you squished for good measure, you can't do drugs any more.

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I dont like this part

    We do a lot of displays at schools and we are trying to show them there's more to life than sitting in front of computers.
    Although I don't live in front of my computer, I am a programmer and that kind of hurt.
