wtf is it with CSS?

It's so freaking tedious to deal w/ all the shit of it down to the most minute detail, how did anyone ever have the patience to make it and use it.

It's like assembly language, so no one should be cursed with having to deal directly with it. Fuck, that there are people with brains that can tolerate it, thus making it live on. No offense, if my brain were that way, it would probably be useful for me, but fucking aye.

    @IllSlapU Crypticness, cryptocity, whatever.... super-low-level inhuman excruciating detail that should just be generated from a higher layer.

    Aren't we smart enough now to have builders that feel as expressive as hand-coded raw css, but stay graphical, so that we don't feel compelled to ever go to that level?

    @d3vnu11 movl $0xFF, %esi means esi = 0xFF;.

    addl $-2, %edi means edi = edi + (-2);.

    shrl $3, %edx means edx = edx >> 3;. Looks pretty damn close to me.

    I'm just pissed off cuz i should learn it. I know it is different but still close to the same in tedium when you are learning either.

    sorta generally... i know you do a lot of bit-shifting between registers to accomplish something simple.

    So, you can't see the similarities because your mind interprets css when you see it. I'm still at the stage where my eyes glaze over -- even tho i can usually understand it if i really look.

    You are taking the analogy too far. I suspect the fact that we are not connecting on this point is a good illustration of the non-css-oriented brain vs the css-oriented brain.

    I feel like I've explained myself pretty clearly. All analogies fall apart at some point because they are two different things being analogized.

    for the last time you gear heads the analogy was restricted to what these things look like at a glance, the fact that they are tedious and intricate enough that they lend themselves to most properly being generated by higher level constructs and abstractions. Stay out of the weeds. Stay out of the weeds.

    I'm in gearhead. I'm just not that good at it. if I were good at it I wouldn't mind the tedium of it all I suppose.

    But I'm also a developer and we know it's good to be lazy as a developer. It's hard to be lazy if you want to learn CSS and do a lot of direct coding with it. I have a lot of other full stack stuff I'd rather put in that part of my brain thank you.

    So I should have said fellow gearheads not just gearheads. My bad.
