What do these words have in common? They are all roughly synonymous (confusion / disorder), they all follow the same rhythmic pattern, and they all start with the letter "h". Question is, how did so many words having this structural similarity happen to have the same approximate meaning?
This isn't a riddle. I'm just genuinely curious. Any ideas or theories?
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
This is embarassing to admit but I actually stored the 'month' value for a record as a string in the database (January, February, March...). The month portion is the only part of the date the record requires, but it was still a bad decision that haunts me to this day.
Instead of simply having an object convert a simple integer value to the string for display purposes when required I'm left with this mess. Do a sort based on month? Alphabetical doesn't work. I swear I don't know what I was thinking - or rather, not thinking as the case may be.
