comment What is abstraction?
+1, "I do abstraction!" will be nice for a T-shirt ;) Thanks for the link on morphism(s) (though it does not directly mention the poly - one amongst the dozen others mentioned ;) ) also.

comment What are some things you have read that inspired and guided you as a programmer?
@Frank Shearar The guy just perefers simplicity to potential spaghetti I think. He also gave a lecture in Russian about a year ago; there he said that he prefers simple things like "for, if" and essentially sees nothing bad in writing Pascal in any language, if the code is effective and clear (as opposed to mistically duct-typed, as I get it).

comment How to test the tests?
@Carson63000 If it's a simple test testing something with a tested mock, the complexity is split and under control (, I think).
