16. Simulation Hypothesis by the DJ Programmer

Mike Fisher


  • When you're looking at an (Angular) controller, you really don't care about how the sorting algorithm works, you care that the sorting algorithm works.
  • When in doubt, refactor.
  • We are contemplating the nature of reality here on The Drunk Web, and what better way to do that than with a cocktail in your hand.
  • You think, I kinda think, most people think, that you and I live in base reality, that this is the real thing and all other everything is stemmed from this. But the simulation hypothesis is that that is not the case and that we are the branch of a tree.
