comment How important is it to clean up someone else's code when faced with a tight deadline?
To quote Dijkstra: "Simplicity is a prerequisite for reliability" and "Elegance is not a dispensable luxury but a quality that decides between success and failure."

As with so many other things, it all comes down to: "It depends... ;)"

comment Should I use parentheses in logical statements even where not necessary?
Just nitpicking, but in !(A + B) <=> !A + !B and -1*(A + B) = -A + -B shouldn't the operator have been flipped from + to * in the second expression?

Although, I've heard it said comments are apologies (for bad/hard-to-read code)... there's a good chance you could have written it better. I guess you could say a similar things about parentheses.

Me too. I'm just hoping I'm doing it more for readability and less because I'm too lazy to become confident/competent in the basics of my langauge.

True, there's a very good chance a AND b probably should be replaced with either a function or pre-calculated boolen value that has a more descriptive name.

comment Should a function use premature returns or wrap everything in if clauses?
"Requires you to read the whole function" isn't as big of a deal if you write succinct methods.
