GeneralSome words create a universe: Farpotshket Pin

Farpotshket from Yiddish:

"Something that is all fouled up, especially as the result of attempts to fix it–repeatedly; making something worse while trying to fix it." [^].

Oh, I know that Demon well: it surfaces too often in code I have written, and re-written !
“Use the word 'cybernetics,' Norbert, because nobody knows what it means. This will always put you at an advantage in arguments.” Claude Shannon (Information Theory scientist): letter to Norbert Weiner of M.I.T., circa 1940
