The guys who wrote the software at my previous job were masters of it. I don't know all their secrets, but some of their finest work included: single character named global variables that were reused indiscriminately, code in stored in a database that was then evaluated inline that did things like changing variable values and declaring functions and other fun stuff, 500+ line functions that tried to do a little of everything, and liberal use of copy and paste.

You aren't thinking enough like a conspiracy theorist. These are either a carefully crafted code to their Illuminati brothers or the colonels have been removed from the earth and alien doppelgangers have been put in their place.

See, it's all very obvious when you think it through.

Can we please stop with this tired old joke? It's never been funny.

Nope. The jokes stop when fools quit falling for high-end cables. You have the right to throw away money on platinum cables with insulation made from unicorn horn that have been bathed in the tears of angels to break them in and I have the right to laugh at you.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
