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.

Oh no, you misunderstood the guy who wrote that piece of code.
Never did he intend that DoSomeThing() is executed only when some codition is true. He just wanted to make his colleagues (who'll have to maintain his buggy code after he quit his job) believe so.
