Impressionistic commenting (warning: some salty language)

[ #31232 ]

As just witnessed on IRC:

<khmer> i indicate the urgency of bugs using a unary string
<khmer> as in ifdef(func) { // FUCK
<khmer> or var something // FUCK FUCK
<khmer> or perhaps switch(true) { // FUCK FUCK FUCK
<khmer> there is only one digit, so a simple repeating regexp helps
        me and i don't have to remember how i decided to comment
        that week
<khmer> plus people always laugh when they read my code now
<khmer> plus, it's humble in a theoretical compsci sense
<khmer> because in the absence of a unary digit, the value of my code
        is not "good" or "not bad", it's "null"
<khmer> sometimes i look at code comments and i feel like i'm reading
        an aol chain letter from 1998
<khmer> NOW THINK OF THE HEADER FILE YOU LOVE MOST IN THE WORLD......
<khmer> >
<khmer> >>
<khmer> >>>
<khmer> >>>>
<khmer> NOW PICK A COLOR!@!@!
<khmer> :)
<khmer> :)
<khmer> :)
<khmer> STILL THINKING???
<khmer> YOU PICKED stdio.h AND GREEN!@@
<khmer> SEND THIS TO FIVE KERNEL DEVELOPERS OR LOSE SLASHDOT KARMA!!
