I have sent this article to countless new programmers. Every one of them said "it couldn't possibly be that bad". Half have sent me "fuck, you were right" messages a year later, the other half just sort of disappeared.
Had to fav this.
Saw the examples at the end? They are C++, ???, Brainfuck, Ook! and Perl.
I do not recognize example 2, does anyone here? I am curious!
(Although I think that putting in Brainfuck and Ook! (which is a Brainfuck variant) is a bit off, as nothing productive will ever be written in them.)
(Edit) Found it! The second one is "Unlambda", another Never-Used-For-Real-Language.
But this is still a great article!
Really fucking hate that the page is stretched on mobile by nothing other than this stupid subscribe button. I can't just scroll down, I need to scroll from left to right in order to keep the article from going off-screen. Why is this such a common thing?
@AlgoRythm I think these pictures are to blame, not the sub button. And the reason this is so common is because images in HTML have the unique and counter-intuitive property of completely ignoring parent sizing and overflowing all over the place. It's dumb, but it's "what the standard says".

Semmel974yHaha. This is absolutely hilarious! :D
That article is too real. Makes me wonder if I shouldn’t have gone into stats or economics or accounting back in school lol
