In a perfect "here's what's wrong with America" moment, a 25-year old woman is suing her own parents for $75k. Why? Because she went up to surprise her mom for the mom's birthday, and the next day slipped on some ice in the driveway. "The daughter said that a letter from her mom apologizing months after the fall proves that her parents knew they had a defective gutter for years and did nothing about it. Her parents said that she can't prove the driveway was icy at the time or that their drainage system was faulty. U.S. District Judge John Shabaz said that a jury should decide the matter." Sounds to me like a jury should decide whether or not these yahoos are worthy of breathing any further. Let's hope the bitch hasn't been breeding.
Much thanks to t_o_e for sharing "Things overheard from Klingon programmers":
Perhaps it is a good day to die! I say we ship it.
Specifications are for the weak and timid!
This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors if I am to do battle with this code!
You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you've read it in the original Klingon.
Indentation?! - I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!
What is this talk of 'release'? Klingons do not make software 'releases'. Our software 'escapes' leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
Klingon function calls do not have 'parameters' - they have 'arguments' - and they ALWAYS WIN THEM.
Debugging? Klingons do not debug. Our software does not coddle the weak.
I have challenged the entire quality assurance team to a bat'leth duel. They will not concern us again.
A TRUE Klingon Warrior does not comment his code!
By filing this bug report you have challenged the honour of my family. Prepare to die!
You question the worthiness of my code? I should kill you where you stand!
Our users will know fear and cower before our software! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!
