The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

OMG | :OMG: Great Zarquon! Thermite the disk immediately before that corrupts something else. Not even I would do that*. WTF | :WTF:

There is absolutely nothing good about that and all sorts of bad. The worst thing I can think of now (no coffee yet) is that you can't copy and paste it to SSMS (or similar) to test it. Just below that would be lack of syntax colouring if available.

You just ruined my day. Thanks for sharing.


* If I did, I'd use an enumeration.
