The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Dead code is great!
Oh, how often in the past did I complain about such kinds - and many other kinds - of dead code here on CP or on other platforms?
E.g.
Re: In praise of developers who delete code[^]
Re: The cost of dead code and the only technique you need to know to clean it up[^]
Oh sanctissimi Wilhelmus, Theodorus, et Fredericus!
