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.

Some LINQ queries are more like when people first discover the ? : conditional operator and you start seeing nested inline conditionals like
 
firstvar == somevalue ? ((myvalue1 + 10) <= 4 ? : false : true) : false
 
Or something worse than that. Your query above could be refactored to be much more clear, therefore removing the need for concise comments. If the above were broken down into individual lines (instead of using a new line and the "."), along with not inline defining the function, it would be easy to understand, and even easier to debug.
 
This is where my problem with "fluent" language extensions come in, while fluent reads more like English, the formatting/extras required to get it to look that way generally obscures the intent.
