“Life is too long to know C++ well.”  — Erik Naggum, via Peter Seibel

Interesting factoid: I coulda sworn that said “too short”.  To the point that I half-suspected it’d mutated in my cut-and-paste buffer and went back to check.  It’s weird when you mis-read something consistently.  It’s like those experiments where you can read short to medium length words, even if they’re scrambled, as long as the first and last letters remain the same.  I didn’t see “long”, I saw “life is too X” and filled in the blank.
