  • When someone says ``I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done,'' give him a lollipop. -- Alan Perlis
    • That's funny. I had forgotten that "It should be possible to translate specifications into defect-free programs automatically" was a full-sentence false cognate with "I like candy". Another fun fact is that "Programming is like construction or (manufacturing)" is a full-sentence false cognate with "I know very little about building software and construction (or manufacturing)."
