I didn't mean to imply that you had anything to worry about.
And yes, I knew your question was about the appropriateness of the questions. My first statement was to set up the second part about the "appropriateness" of the questions from the perspective of an employer.
The question for me was whether some of these questions were even appropriate.
No they are not!
As others have pointed out some of these questions are subjective which are not valid questions to ask as the results will differ from individual to individual and are not necessarily reflective of the person being evaluated.
The report of my death was an exaggeration - Mark Twain
Really? Reading the thread below(The ultimate Nigerian scam)[^] I could not believe the replies . People have been murdered and their bodies served in a restaurant and all we can do is joke about it. My respect for some people here has just been lowered a couple notches. So sad
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

In the face of such unimaginable atrocities in a distant place, humour (or attempts at it) are about all one can do. It's probably some kind of defense mechanism against constantly rising bar of depravity. There was no intent to offend.
I'm with you actually. I can't really see a source of humour here. IMHO there are certain atrocities that need to be left for what they are. Bombings by militants in train stations for example don't bring out the joker in me.
Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.
These are the same people who make fun of the deaths in Syria, Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the rest of the world. Some joke for fun, others joke for spite, but almost all will joke nonetheless. People stopped being human(e) beings a long time ago and are just beings of some sort now. I think we have to reclassify our species now.
While watching one of my colleagues write some code the other day, I noticed he would create properties for several fields in a class, and then he'd have to paste them together, and then cut/paste the entire block inside a #region for properties. It seemed like quite a tedious process, so I began looking at VS extensions (we use VS2012). I found "MoveToRegionVSX", but apparently it doesn't support VS2012. Are there any other similar extensions for 2012?
I was looking for something so that we could just highlight a block of code and easily move it to the desired #region. I had no luck whatsoever. I downloaded one called CodeMaid, and you can drag things around the outline to rearrange the code file. But you can only drag/drop one property at a time. I was thinking more of a keyboard shortcut for the entire selection.
