about once a month in game dev discords i see someone have c# garbage collection explained to them and they say fuck this! im switching to c++! and then 3 weeks later they come crawling back

everyone is so terrified of structs. theyre literally fine. just use them

doesnt help that all the top responses about structs on stack overflow are like "dont use structs unless you absolutely have to" shut up you object oriented nerds i will stuff you in a locker

@dankwraith did you expect any other type of response from stack overflow honestly

@dankwraith "helo how do i define a string"

"strings considered harmful"

@mdszy it is a repository of all the worst advice ever written, i am glad their c suite is currently running the company into the ground

@dankwraith one of my favorite fucking bits ever

everyone: yo stack overflow your community fucking sucks what the fuck y'all

stack overflow: did you say you want a newsletter? here's a newsletter!!!!

@mdszy @dankwraith i'm pretty sure they're still dealing with the aftershocks of a bunch of mods refusing to respect they/them pronouns and making the shittiest possible exit because of it

@dankwraith excuse me, you can't stuff someone in a locker, you have to send them a message so they can stuff themselves in a locker

am i doing OOP right?

@heartles @dankwraith you have to send the locker a message so it can stuff someone in itself

@heartles @dankwraith first you need a locker factory factory, which you can plan out from an abstract factory factory. danstroot.com/2018/10/03/hamme
