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.

The verb depends on what you're using it for (spelling, reciting, memorising etc.) You could then combine said verb with an adverb such as phonetically or acrophonically (e.g. "He spelled out the word acrophonically") but that wouldn't necessarily point to the NATO alphabet without further qualification.
98.4% of statistics are made up on the spot.
