because I'm sorry to say, I've actually seen horse shit like this: http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/Mentors,_the_Freshmaker.aspx
lol. I still remember one day finding some even worse shit... Found some code (looked like a lazy patch someone did to tweak it) that did nothing but a series of database lookups, set iterations, and I/O calls (without error checking) just to figure out how to print a non breaking space haha. That's when I threw up my hands and said, FUCK IT I'm done reading this thing looooooooool.
Maybe I really should get a life again >_<
