comment What's the worst question you were ever asked at interview?
@Kyralessa True, but another part of the reason they're round is so they're easy to roll to the side. Solid steel, do you think they're light enough to pick up?

comment Explaining technical things to non-technical people
@Arkaaito Usually using individual cards as good examples of inheritance and/or properties (depending on who I'm talking to and about what), and the deck as a container class that has functions like shuffle(), deal(), dealOne(), etc.

comment Effectiveness of “what is your greatest strength/weakness” interview questions
Worst I've been asked was what are my 3 greatest strengths & weaknesses. I could easily come up with 2 for either that didn't make me look like a shoddy employee, wasn't easy to come up with the third for either.

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
@Anna Some are three years, like the one I took (and the extra year was where we learned most of the useful, high-level, information). And actually, some colleges can give out bachelor degrees--or can in Ontario, I can't speak for other provinces--but it's very specific, and quite regulated.

@Billy How about around here, where a college diploma means jack, but a university diploma will grant you everything? Both go to school, both are arguably better than the other, but there's a sociological difference
