Addendum: “It has come to our attention that sarcasm is actually the function’s output and the solution is only a side effect. We regret the error.”

One thought on “Proof that engineers are not purely functional”
Sarcasm is really required by thermodynamics, no? So it’s more an expression of efficiency than a side effect. Plus, if you feed sarcasm back into the system as an input, you can almost certainly improve overall efficiency. Debugging demos this nicely: i.e., inputs = coffee + snarkily-expressed-problem.
