if you know lydia let me be your internet friend oh my god pls
of months, September … October …
I am tired of the way the seasons
keep changing, mimicking
the seasons of the flesh
which are real and finite.
Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
so that’s the function of a rubber duck
This post was great and then it got better.
This is literally me. I literally do this like all day long while I am working on code which is like all the time when I’m not on Tumblr
Fun fact: This is also very helpful for finding errors in, say, maths problems (I use my mom…I call her to help me and while I’m explaining I’ll be like, “Oh wait that is so obvious never mind I get it how could I be so stupid thank you!”), as well as figuring out a (coherent) plot when writing fiction. It’s sometimes called the cardboard-cut-out technique.
