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.

This only appears to be a good idea when you are sleep deprived and working on your project at 4am. That's why I drink more coffee. I had to support code like this a few times. Good luck if you are trying to debug the query, especially if the person who wrote it used column indexes instead of column names when referencing the result set.
