Marat


Zuzana Staňková via Las insólitas aventuras del pez

After he was stabbed in the bathtub, did you know the Marquis de Sade wrote Marat's eulogy?

OT, but Larry Wall can kiss my ass. I just spent a half hour tracking down a "Use of uninitialized value in substitution" error. The cause of it was that what looked like a string, walked like a string, and quacked like a string was actually a URI::URL.

After staring at the 42 barrels (pointed in 42 different directions), you pick up this facinating gun only to have it shoot holes in every part of you *except* your feet.

@Ogg,
Yet another reason to be thankful that I no longer have to deal with Perl DBI.

From my toolbox:

C
You shoot yourself in the foot.

C++
You accidentally create a dozen clones of yourself and shoot them all in the foot. Providing emergency medical assistance is impossible since you can’t tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others and saying, “That’s me, over there.”

PHP
You shoot yourself in the foot with a gun made with pieces from 300 other guns.

ASP.NET
Find a gun, it falls apart. Put it back together, it falls apart again. You try using the .GUN Framework, it falls apart. You stab yourself in the foot instead.

SQL
SELECT @ammo:=bullet FROM gun WHERE trigger = ‘PULLED’;
INSERT INTO leg (foot) VALUES (@ammo);

Perl
You shoot yourself in the foot, but nobody can understand how you did it. Six months later, neither can you. (via Andy)

Javascript
YOu’ve perfected a robust, rich user experience for shooting yourself in the foot. You then find that bullets are disabled on your gun.

CSS
You shoot your right foot with one hand, then switch hands to shoot your left foot but you realize that the gun has turned into a banana.

Unix
% ls
foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o
% rm * .o
rm: .o: No such file or directory
% ls
%

Assembly
You try to shoot yourself in the foot only to discover you must first reinvent the gun, the bullet, and your foot. After that’s done, you pull the trigger, the gun beeps several times, then crashes.

The CSS one is wrong. You can't shoot yourself in the foot with CSS, but you can make the gun look like a crossbow.

I wonder who would write my eulogy. And if they'd write it in code.
