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.

Yes, that number arising is pure coincidence and I find it rather nonsensical to make anything of it. The thing is you are mixing a ratio and an absolute measure and when the units of meters are used the number is interesting. For a civilization that uses feet and inches there would be no significance what so ever. They will find the cubit to be 20.6 inches and think, "oh, what ever. That seems rather random." The Egyptians didn't have the metric system so how would that number of meters been of any significance?
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
