    This comment says something cool -- don't try to understand it.

    I did have a const once called "theCowsComeHome = false", which was used as the end condition of main do{} until() loop....

    Reruns don't count as "on TV"?

    I believe the correct article it references is https://thedailywtf.com/articles/Pointless_Pointless_Pointless_Pointless_Pointless_Pointless_Pointless - it matches the date and references jakeypoo

    More like "when coding standards go wild." This definitely smells of the old "thou shalt comment every method" commandment.

    I always have a function called "theCowsAreHome()" which returns false. That way I can type:

    while (!theCowsAreHome()) { // Loop indefinitely }

    It lets me see which 'infinite' loops are intentional (normally there's a 'break' in there somewhere).
