Happy “Day of the Programmer”

Happy debugging, suckers

Happy debugging, suckers

Or maybe not…

(yes, this year it’s not on the 13th of September, but the 12th, guess why…)

PS: The oldest reference I could find for define true (rand() > 10) was this one from 20121014:

// Happy debugging, suckers
# define true (rand() > 10)

Source: – snippet #6

It reminds me of a 1990s prank I once put in central consts unit of a Turbo Pascal project somewhere way beyond the right margin in a search directory outside of version control:

                                                                                     const True = False; False = not True;

A lot more pranks are at Happy debugging, suckers : ProgrammerHumor – reddit
