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.

That is entirely USians' loss.

I followed the controversy as it developed in the US. All I can say is that if an author can be deemed racist for a couple of elements in one drawing out of N illustrated books, then something is very wrong in the US. I remember reading the controversial book (And to think I saw it on Mulberry Street, IIRC) as a child, and all I thought about the drawings of "foreigners" was that they certainly dress funnily in "foreign parts".
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
