quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur

This is a must read for tomorrow instead of the Friday joke. Trust me. Is still as much fun and a lot more educational. An essay from Canadian Mind Products. Never heard of them until now but the reality of the paper is just mind blowing. It's a "tongue in cheek" article entitled "How To Write Unmaintainable Code". It's quite long and it deals mostly with C examples but the single JavaScript gem is enough to give you web development nightmares. If you lack the patience to read the whole thing just search for "A Real Life Example" and that should rise your interest level enough to scroll up to the beginning. So go and see that if you ever thought you can write entirely unmaintainable code you were wrong :)
