Re: 2091: "Million, Billion, Trillion"

This is why we begin to see "M$, G$" in some publications. With the computer era, most people will understand these terms and their signification is the same in every language. Mega/Giga/Tera/Peta/Exa (i don't think an ExaDollar will come to life soon)... ... even if there is a confusion b...

Re: 1780: "Appliance Repair"

Like I just wrote in the explanation on http://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/1780 , the fact that Cueball is holding a three-phase motor could explain why the humidifier does not work. A three-phase motor only works on three-phase voltage (208V or 600V), while the humidifier is likely built to ...

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

Or you can find a guy who is coding VBA, and if you dislike this guy, you open his code and add random "chr(255)" characters in his code (like at the beginning or the end of some variables), so everything will break up, and he will possibly have a hard time finding why his code is broken. ...

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

So you can get very weird looking code by using chr(255) as a variable character (which looks like a space, but is a valid identifier) : Private Type          As Boolean End Type Sub t()   =    MsgBox      ( ,  )     =   +     : For      =   To    Next End Sub Function      (  As Variant,    As Vari...

Proof that 1=0 !

Hi folks,

Here is the only proof by code that 1=0 ! Runs on Excel VBA.
1=0.png


Copy-paste this into a module, then press "play" with the cursor inside the procedure:

Code: Select all

Sub t()
    x = 2
    If x * ½ = 0 Then MsgBox "It is proven that 1=0 !"
End Sub

Re: 1534: "Beer"

I think that the reality must be told from someone who's just drinking its first beer of its life. Does you guys can confirm that the first beer you drank was tasting good ? I remember someone telling me "You will get accustomized". I guess that it's the thing girls says to other girls who...

I think the fingers would be the first thing to break, if any body part breaks. There could be some shoulder dislocation at one point (if the fingers do not get cut off before).This link states that "Shoulder dislocation" can happen by "a fall on an outstretched arm" or "whe...

A little processor-hungry on my Core 2 Duo (but can't blame Randall for my PC being outdated). Slow, but worth it.
