"The human brain isn't particularly good at basic logic and now there's a whole career in doing nothing but really, really complex logic. Vast chains of abstract conditions and requirements have to be picked through to discover things like missing commas. Doing this all day leaves you in a state of mild aphasia as you look at people's faces while they're speaking and you don't know they've finished because there's no semicolon."
This is a great essay and kept me smiling from start to finish! My favorite line is "All programming teams are constructed by and of crazy people" - more fact than fiction. Thanks for posting +Leanne Yanabu .
