Water features also provide significant air quality benefits, especially if you aerate them. There's just lots of good reasons to implement them. Trees, as well; I cringe when I see posts permanently erected for vehicle control. Removable or sinking bollards, certainly. They have their purpose. But fixed ones?

So you truly have no comprehension of what makes sports popular do you? It's PRECISELY the fact that people think of these teams as "their team".

I like motorsports because I like motorsports, I don't care about any particular team. It's thrilling just to see it. That's what's great about stuff like world rally.

Why? Seriously, why? What does that have to do with the outcome of the race?

What does the outcome of the race have to do with the enjoyment? You're not racing. What do you care who wins? They're doing it completely and totally without you. Same for sports. That's not your team. You just bought some of their marketing crap.

If that's all the variable is used for, won't the compiler optimize it out of existence anyway? Or is that too fancy yet?

I think a lot of people don't really understand how the compiler actually works. Not even at a basic level.

Well, no, I don't. That's why I asked. It sounds like the answer to my question is yes?

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.

Working...
