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.

In that case, it works does not mean you should use it. This is totally unreadable at first. In the professional World, when any day you can be out of project(read job, as worst case) and some other poor sod has to maintain it, this is one of the things that leads to rants and posts in this very forum.
