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.

There is no such thing as a timestamp without a timezone. Does not matter how you do it. All programming languages. All databases. Even when it is not obvious. Even when it is not defined.

Even if you just write it on a piece of paper.

Myself I am not even sure if dates (not timestamps) exist without a timezone. Certainly my birthday is just as useable here as it is halfway around the world. But if I am supposed to get a something free from a international company on my birthday every year as a swag then when does it show up?
