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, embarrassing 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.

Very inconsistent! He'd better write:
If GlobalClassV2.Globals.Instance.ExecuteQuery2(XSQL) = True Then
    Throw New Exception("GAGAL")
    Exit Function
End If

And I like that gaga exception ("gagal" means "failed", doesn't it?) before the call to Exit Function...
