Wow, because I totally never got my pockets picked in my home city. Like, it absolutely never happens.
an absolutely appalling clusterfuck of a language that can't even use consistent function names within a single module (its name shall not be spoken).
I think its name should be spoken. I doubt that I'm the only one who doesn't know what language you're talking about.
Let's just say that you might need a Physicians Health Plan after trying to remember whether or not a function name has an underscore.
They're just looking for their money back from the feds.
I think the fed should hold onto the money; The last thing you do to someone who doesn't know how to budget themselves and blows their money on crap like booze and toys instead of rent and food is give them more money.
Why not make the source itself a formal language?
It already IS a formal language: American English Leagalese.
This language started out as essentially the language as spoken at the time the early laws were written, then various words had their meanings defined, clarified, and frozen by court decisions. Further laws, contracts, and legal arguments and decisions used these words whose meanings were clarified in preference to other words that had not been so clarified. Meanwhile, in the absense of public education in the law for people who weren't making a carreer in the legal system, the spoken language drifted away.
