    Methinks that is over the head of everyone.

    You really have to be determined to do that.

    really cool stuff

    it involves a lot of microelectronics and chip fabrication concepts
    Found in the OpenGL header file for Visual C++ 6: 'typedef GLint int '. AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!! [Don't get it? You're not a C programmer.]

    A hacker does for love what others would not do for money.

    Being married to a programmer is like having a cat. You talk to it but you're never really sure if it hears you, much less comprehends what you say.

    Not exactly poisonous, but nasty if you get it in your skin, drink it or inhale quite a bit of its vapors.
    Also, he is doing all his work in a fume hood. There is negative pressure in that hood that sucks air from the room and keep any vapors away from the operator.

    this is probably one of the best works I seen on this subject

    even if it dates back to 2004, it is still IMHO ideal for a powerful introduction to this argument.
