Programming Is Like Sex

Programming is like sex because...

• One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life.
• Once you get started, you'll only stop because you're exhausted.
• It takes another experienced person to really appreciate what you're doing.
• ...Conversely, there's some odd people who pride themselves on their lack of experience.
• You can do it for money or for fun.
• If you spend more time doing it than watching TV, people think you're some kind of freak.
• It's not really an appropriate topic for dinner conversation.
• Public schools don't do a very good job teaching kids about it.
• It doesn't make any sense at all if you try to explain it in strictly clinical terms.
• Some people are just naturally good at it.
• ...But some people will never realize how bad they are, and you're wasting your time trying to tell them.
• There are a few weirdos with bizarre practices nobody really is comfortable with.
• One little thing going wrong can ruin everything.
