    These two guys are driving me crazy:
    http://forums.devshed.com/t245865/s.html
    http://forums.devshed.com/t246538/s.html

    First, ralphuk100 hijacked liagjpanq's thread (#2) and we had some little argument about it. But now, before I can even reply again there, liagjpanq hijacked ralphuk100's thread (#1) in return!?!?.

    Know what? I guess I'll go the line of the least resistance and delete both of them... Some days...

    After a little coaxing, I might be willing to finance said operation. Just because lessons need to be taught. If any of y'all are interested PM me and tell me what you wanna do and how we will not be legally liable for this kid's demise.

    Here is a nice one where a guy is looking to open a file and search it... or so it seems.

    you'd think he'd want to hide the fact that he knows that, not tout it

    I'd thought I'd add another post in here because of the tenacity of its resourcefulness. (Um...big words. I know. I'm sorry B-Con! )

    Anyways, in a thread entitled "What is meant by recursion?", The Dark explains it beautifully.

    wtf? "resourcefulness"? um, what's that mean? speak in troll language, please, this is the Lounge, after all

    wow, that's a great thread, there's so much rep that can be spread.... everyone go there and spread rep around!

    (me, I've given out too much rep in the past 24 hrs, could only give one as of now )

    funny :from the beginner programming forum


    hey people, dont know how many of you visit the beginners forums. i go there rarely.. but i did just today and i found this really funny post referred to in the forum sticky. please rep the dude if you see him posting anywhere.. think he's normally in the c fourm.

    opinions on laguages...

    C: You shoot yourself in the foot.

    C++: You accidentally create a dozen instances of yourself and shoot them all in the foot. Providing emergency medical assistance is impossible since you can't tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others and saying,"That's me, over there."

    FORTRAN: You shoot yourself in each toe until you run out of toes, then you read in the next foot and repeat. If you run out of bullets, you continue with the attempts to shoot yourself anyway because you have no exception-handling capability.

    Pascal: The compiler won't let you shoot yourself in the foot, no matter how much you need to.

    Ada: After correctly packing your foot, you attempt to concurrently load the gun, pull the trigger, scream, and shoot yourself in the foot. When you try, however, you discover you can't because your foot is of the wrong type.

    COBOL: Using a COLT 45 HANDGUN, AIM gun at LEG.FOOT, THEN place ARM.HAND.FINGER on HANDGUN.TRIGGER and SQUEEZE. THEN return HANDGUN to HOLSTER. CHECK whether shoelace needs to be re-tied.

    LISP: You shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds...

    FORTH: Foot in yourself shoot.

    Prolog: You tell your program that you want to be shot in the foot. The program figures out how to do it, but the syntax doesn't permit it to explain it to you.

    BASIC: Shoot yourself in the foot with a water pistol. On large systems, continue until entire lower body is waterlogged.

    Visual Basic: You'll really only appear to have shot yourself in the foot, but you'll have had so much fun doing it that you won't care.

    HyperTalk: Put the first bullet of gun into foot left of leg of you. Answer the result.

    Motif: You spend days writing a UIL description of your foot, the bullet, its trajectory, and the intricate scrollwork onthe ivory handles of the gun. When you finally get around to pulling the trigger, the gun jams.

    APL: You shoot yourself in the foot, then spend all day figuring out how to do it in fewer characters.

    SNOBOL: If you succeed, shoot yourself in the left foot. If you fail, shoot yourself in the right foot.

    Unix:% ls foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o % rm * .o rm:.o no such file or directory % ls %

    Concurrent Euclid: You shoot yourself in somebody else's foot.

    370 JCL: You send your foot down to MIS and include a 400-page document explaining exactly how you want it to be shot. Three years later, your foot comes back deep-fried.

    Paradox: Not only can you shoot yourself in the foot, your users can, too.

    Access: You try to point the gun at your foot, but it shoots holes in all your Borland distribution diskettes instead.

    Revelation: You're sure you're going to be able to shoot yourself in the foot, just as soon as you figure out what all these nifty little bullet-thingies are for.

    Assembler: You try to shoot yourself in the foot, only to discover you must first invent the gun, the bullet, the trigger, and your foot.

    Modula2: After realizing that you can't actually accomplish anything in this language, you shoot yourself in the head.
    not only funny but i do agree with all this..
