Barbie, you suck.
Now, I’m all for girls getting into IT, a male dominated field (wha?) – as a matter of fact, I hope that my daughter will be a competent coder or at least know how computers operate on some level that seems to be lacking in today’s millennial generation (they know how to use them, kinda, but it seems do not know how they work for the most part). Barbie? She’s been making the news again lately – but not in a good way.
So, why the vitriol?
Finally, a programming language I can get into! Someone (or a group of someones) has decided to develop a language derived from campy Arnold Schwarzenegger movie one-liners and dubbed it “ArnoldC” –
THIS IS PURE GENIUS.
Direct from GitHub (a collaboration site for developing software):
“Although the one-liners of Arnold Schwarzenegger are fairly well known the true semantics of the uttering is yet to be understood. This project tries to discover new meanings from the Arnold movies with the means of computer science.”
There are a LOT of goodies, but here are some samples of my favorite keywords (which I now realize is pretty much more than half of them):
BECAUSE I'M GOING TO SAY PLEASE
YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR LOGIC
HE HAD TO SPLIT
I LET HIM GO
YOU ARE NOT YOU YOU ARE ME
I NEED YOUR CLOTHES YOUR BOOTS AND YOUR MOTORCYCLE
I'LL BE BACK
HASTA LA VISTA, BABY
DO IT NOW
GET YOUR ASS TO MARS
GET TO THE CHOPPER
…and my personal favorite:

I bet someone had a rough start to his week.

Someone is having “trouble” with their computer.
I kinda feel bad for the guy – but did he not float this idea by his buddies first?
