programming is like sex because...

    - One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life. (Michael Sinz)
    Once you get started, you’ll only stop because you’re exhausted.
    - It takes another experienced person to really appreciate what you’re doing.
    - Conversely, there’s some odd people who pride themselves on their lack of experience.
    - You can do it for money or for fun.
    - If you spend more time doing it than watching TV, people think you’re some kind of freak.
    - It’s not really an appropriate topic for dinner conversation.
    There’s not enough taught about it in public school.
    - It doesn’t make any sense at all if you try to explain it in strictly clinical terms.
    - Some people are just naturally good.
    - But some people will never realize how bad they are, and you’re wasting your time trying to tell them.
    - There are a few weirdos with bizarre practices nobody really is comfortable with.
    - One little thing going wrong can ruin everything.
    - It’s a great way to spend a lunch break.
    - Everyone acts like they’re the first person to come up with a new technique.
    - Everyone who’s done it pokes fun at those who haven’t.
    - Beginners do a lot of clumsy fumbling about.
    - You’ll miss it if it’s been a while.
    - There’s always someone willing to write about the only right way to do things.
    - It doesn’t go so well when you’re drunk, but you’re more likely to do it.
    - Sometimes it’s fun to use expensive toys.
    - Other people just get in the way.
