single statements turn into multiple statements and you forget to add braces


I've made thousands of stupid errors in my career so far, but have yet to do that. How is this not obviously wrong, unless you code with Python?



C++
if (something)
   do1();
   do2();


In fact most compilers will issue a warning for that nowadays.
