How is this explained?



I thought Republicans were the more fiscally responsible of the two parties.

The discoloration on your foot after a sprained ankle must be the best part.

At Least 74 Miners Dead in China Blast

"Chinese Coal Miner" has to be the most dangerous job in the entire world.

What else is even close?

Making Software





DDT

At work I practice DDT (Development-Driven Testing). Under this paradigm, I write code that does something and then I write tests that adequately test that code. As a self-appointed software development guru, I insist that is the right way to do things.

There is a related (but backwards idea) known as TDD (Test-Driven Development). Under this crazy scheme, tests are written first and the corresponding code is written second. People who develop software in this manner are doing it completely wrong.

However, it's important to notice something. If you practice either scheme (or even a combination of the two), the end result is code and tests that test that code. So, unless you tell people how you developed your software, there is no way to know if you did TDD or DDT. So, shut up about it already. I don't care what you do or what you think I should do. Shut up and code.

(By the way, I think everybody should own a shut up and code t-shirt.)

Stimulus Package? The Hell with Our Constitution

It's too bad he wasn't our first black president.

The Worst Idea on the Web?

Could CNN selling headline t-shirts be the worst idea on the web? I think maybe it is. All of the people in those pictures look like complete dorks.

Noam Chomsky Drinking Pure Evil Out of a Cup (or One Chomksy, One Cup)

A reader of my blog wanted me to repost the video of Noam Chomsky drinking pure, concentrated evil out of a tiny cup. So, here it is.
