"goto fail; " ...... It is funny, it is sad, and I have certainly done the same.

In response to Apple's public code fail I am sure there will be discussion on indentation vs braces based code block languages. But I wonder if there is a middle path, could style parcing act as intermediaries between programmers and full code review? It seems like the disconnect between the block indentation and the multi line if statement syntax in this case would have been glaring.  

If I had taken a slightly different path in graduate school I would have ended up a compiler/interpreter/languages geek.....  As it stand I still spend way too much time reading about dalvik/ART and  trying to program turning tar pits.

The  bill to remove the 60 year old financial industry regulations, passed in 1999 by the GOP Congress, did more than encourage the insane antics that led to the later Great Meltdown.  It has apparently unleashed the top banks to own and operate every kind of resource manipulation industry.  Read  about this… and try to picture: "why are they doing everything in their power to resurrect Teddy Roosevelt?  Because that is where we will ultimately turn.  Preferably that, over Robspierre.

"Kinky Sex Makes The World Go 'Round" (a modern prophecy from the 80's by the dead Kennedy's)

Greetings:This is the Secretary of War at the State Department 
of the United States
We have a problem. 
The companies want something done about this sluggish 
world economic situation
Profits have been running a little thin lately 
and we need to stimulate some growth
Now we know 
there's an alarmingly high number of young people roaming 
around in your country with nothing to do but stir up trouble 
for the police and damage private property. 
It doesn't look like they'll ever get a job
It's about time we did something constructive with these people
We've got thousands of 'em here too. They're crawling all over
The companies think it's time we all sit down, have a serious get-together-
And start another war
The President? 
He loves the idea! All those missiles streaming overhead to and fro
People running down the road, skin on fire
The Soviets seem up for it:
The Kremlin's been itching for the real thing for years. 
Hell, Afghanistan's no fun
So whadya say?
We don't even have to win this war. 
We just want to cut down on some of this excess population
Now look. Just start up a draft; draft as many of those people as you can. 
We'll call up every last youngster we can get our hands on, 
hand 'em some speed, give 'em an hour or two to learn how to use 
an automatic rifle and send 'em on their way
Libya? El Salvador? How 'bout Northern Ireland? 
Or a "moderately repressive regime" in South America?
We'll just cook up a good Soviet threat story 
in the Middle East-we need that oil
We had Libya all ready to go and Colonel Khadafy's hit squad 
didn't even show up. I tell ya
That man is unreliable. 
The Kremlin had their fingers on the button just like we did for that one
Now just think for a minute-We can make this war so big-so BIG
The more people we kill in this war, the more the economy will prosper
We can get rid of practically everybody on your dole queue if we plan this right. 
Take every loafer on welfare right off our computer rolls
Now don't worry about demonstrations-just pump up your drug supply.
So many people have hooked themselves on heroin 
and amphetamines since we took over, it's just like Vietnam. 
We had everybody so busy with LSD they never got too strong. 
Kept the war functioning just fine
It's easy. 
We've got our college kids so interested in beer 
they don't even care if we start manufacturing germ bombs again. 
Put a nuclear stockpile in their back yard, 
they wouldn't even know what it looked like
So how 'bout it? Look-War is money. 
The arms manufacturers tell me unless 
we get our bomb factories up to full production 
the whole economy is going to collapse
The Soviets are in the same boat. 
We all agree the time has come for the big one, so whadya say?!?
That's excellent. We knew you'd agree
The companies will be very pleased.
