These have got to be the funniest code comments I have ever read in a while.
// Dear maintainer:
// Once you are done trying to 'optimize'
// this routine,and have realized what a
// terrible mistake that was, please increment
// the following counter as a warning to
// the next guy:
// total_hours_wasted_here = 16
Stay Tuned, and as always, Your comments make my day, so leave them. Cheers!!
