The way some people write code, you'd think they actually were paying for whitespace by the byte.

This is one of the [many] reasons Python sucks:

root@rpiw1:/usr/share/doc/bluez-tests/examples# ./simple-agent
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./simple-agent", line 5, in <module>
import dbus
ImportError: No module named 'dbus'
root@rpiw1:/usr/share/doc/bluez-tests/examples# apt-get install python-dbus
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
python-dbus is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
root@rpiw1:/usr/share/doc/bluez-tests/examples#

Really? Then WTF do you want, you miserable piece of junk?

Here it is, almost 2017, and there's no terminal program for Linux that can add a freakin' LF when CR is typed. minicom? Nope. putty? Nope. screen? Maybe, with 'onlcr', except it doesn't work. Haven't tried tip or cu yet.

Turns out it was quicker to write something in C. I don't need fancy terminal emulation, just local echo and adding LF to CR on output...

Emojiglyphics -- The reversion of the written language to stupid little meaningless pictures, because "smartphone" users are too stupid to form a comprehensible sentence with the Roman alphabet. I'd just as soon be able to disable all that crap permanently.

I really wish Subversion would choke when more than one '-m' argument is specified on the command line. 99.44% of the time I screw up a commit, it's because I've got two '-m' options out there, and I commit a bunch of files with the wrong message.

This is what we get as a result of all you bozos that voted for Obama.

Hands down, I'd rather write in COBOL than do anything with this miserable excuse of a language called 'Python'.
