Not too long ago I worked somewhere that used static variables for global values instead of constants. I began telling the senior dev there why it is better to use constants, starting "When you use constants the compiler....", he then interrupted me quite irate and said "What do I care what the compiler is doing? Why should the compiler affect how I code?"

Ohhhhkayyyyyy.....
