^Said syntax error will be "unexpected character ';'" The first thing anyone tries is going to be retyping the line and/or character.


If you really want to ruin a coworker's day, web languages are the way to go, because all of them hate you. Old browsers will allow this:

Code: Select all

var undefined = true
If you have two functions with the same name in different files, Node will just pick whichever is defined first from its require(...) perspective and not throw an error or warning. Override their function with a slightly different one in an unrelated file!

Today I learned you can do this in Python:

Code: Select all

True = False
a = True
print a == True and a == False
>> True

I heard those specific coding failures are actually the result of a faulty file in the Windows operating system that to this date still hasn't been removed. Word is that if you find the file SYSTEM32 in your computer and simply delete it, your programs should work just fine. I tried it and omg you should see how nice Overwatch and Diablo 3 run now! Like 80 fps.

^I remember seeing a gif like that of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The explanation that I saw is that the client-side physics and server-side physics can't reconcile, so they just keep making things worse as they try.

Yeah, this one's explanation is just that it's Nascar 2003. It's kind of infamous for crazy bugs.[DOUBLEPOST=1500900401,1500900248][/DOUBLEPOST][QUOTE="Follow The Buzzards, post: 1638517, member: 40493"]Image

I mean, that makes me want to listen to them so it's working.

There should be a band name like Blue Screen of Death or something like that.
