General Development "You often hear about how important it is to write 'readable code'. Developers have pretty strong opinions about what makes code more readable. The more senior the developer, the stronger the opinion. But, have you ever stopped to think about what really makes code readable?"

I asked God


Dude, don't do acid. It makes you hallucinate and imagine things.

I was an atheist. Then, one day at age 26, reality didn't seem quite right. Looking back, I was kinda retarded in a nerdy way. Anyway, spiritual awakening. I read the Bible. I would open randomly. It started talking when I opened randomly. Over the years, I tried various random techniques -- it's all the same. Any random technique works, but the key is you have to hold-up your end of the conversation.

God talks! He's great. I love Him.

I enjoy what you write, because I like strange things and unexpected twists. But I'm not sure everybody here agrees with that.

It seems you are quite clever, but your technical knowledge and opinion gets a bit distorted and even lost when you add these non-technical remarks.

In a discussion about code readability somehow NBA players and gay brothers get involved. I know NBA player Chris Bosh has a mayor in computer science, but apart from that it seems totally irrelevant.

If you leave talking gods, LISP coding gays, the CIA, tall black men and all their friends out of your comments I'm sure it would make live easier for you and the ones who think "WTF!?" with every comment you write.
