## Best source code comment ever?

September 24th, 2010 | Categories: just for fun, programming | Tags:

One of my friends on facebook posted the following source code comment which I am sorely tempted to use in some future projects.

//
// Dear maintainer:
//
// Once you are done trying to 'optimize' this routine,
// and have realized what a terrible mistake that was,
// please increment the following counter as a warning
// to the next guy:
//
// total_hours_wasted_here = 32
//


It turns out that this is one of many examples in a superb thread on StackOverflow.com
