Yesterday, a coworker says to me, "I'm converting a program from Java to Python, and I seem to just be deleting excess characters - curly braces, semicolons, and such"

I replied, "So, what you're telling me in that inside every Java program, there's a much smaller Python program struggling to get out?"

Yeah, a small, non-idiomatic Python program.

I think I've just found a way to eliminate the Sunday morning religious solicitation wake-up problem. (Yes, I've heard the Good News.  No, I'm happy with my current faith.)
All I need is a realistic plastic snake to put out on my front steps like it's sunning itself.....

Wow.  Amazingly prescient from a show that was not really a tech-centered show.

[Edit: change 'accurate' to 'prescient']
Why didn't we listen? The fourth season of The Rockford Files, arguably the greatest television show of all time, features a "futuristic" storyline about a terrible threat. What if a private corporation used computers to gather personal information on hundreds of millions of Americans? Could we trust them with that data?

Can we put this guy in a cell with nothing but Trump campaign videos?

"I was just doing a social experiment" was the lamest ass-covering 30 years ago, the first time it was uttered on Usenet
In his first interview since bailing himself out on federal fraud charges, pharmaceutical warlord Martin Shkreli told the Wall Street Journal that he was only a big dumb butthead on the internet as a grand social experiment, which given the outcome, seems like it ended up being a very bad experiment.

It's a lame excuse, anyway: not everyone who speeds on the highway gets a ticket, but the ones who give cops the finger more often do.

How did this guy get his money, if he can't think of the consequences of renouncing his US citizenship?

Ok, it's 2014 - why am I still finding recent C/C++ code functions returning 'int' and the only values returned are 1 and 0?
