  • Dryrot (Score:2, Funny)

    A (large) number of years back, before I got test infected, I picked up the idea of putting the equivalent of asserts into places that should never be reached, except I called them "dryrot", and printed them as such. They later caused some embarrasement to the fellow who inherited a chunk of work I'd done, after he'd modified and deployed without thorough testing. Heh heh.
  • And when the code becomes self aware, the question "How did we get here?" becomes philosophical :)
