[quote,profession] Yegge QotD

Ну, сейчас все дают ссылки на Йегеге (сюда или вот сюда, а прошлый раз сюда и вот сюда). Йегеге, очевидно, велик. Но мне сегодня особенно пришлась по душе вот эта формулировка, неточная, но сильная:

Computers don't have ten fingers; they have one.

Другой характернейший образчик йегегешного стиля:

If you say you're an expert in something, many interviewers take it to mean you claim to have a bigger penis than they do, metaphorically speaking of course, and they're going to pull out their still highly metaphorical measuring stick during the interview and size you up. I employ this metaphor in its most gender-neutral possible interpretation, needless to say.
