This reminds me of one of my third grade teachers. His class motto was "people with beards are great".

I can't help but think that he was on to something.

Actually, it also brings to mind a theme from Cryptonomicon [wikipedia.org] , where programmers are referred to as Dwarves, "stout, taciturn, vaguely magical characters who spent a lot of time in the dark hammering out beautiful things." I don't think its a coincidence that beards go along with the territory.

glwtta (532858) | more than 6 years ago | (#23243056)

Heh, I loved the beard "deconstruction" in the Cryptonomicon:

She pulled down statistics on racial variation in beard growth. American Indians didn't grow beards, Asians hardly did, Africans were a special case because daily shaving gave them a painful skin condition. "The ability to grow heavy, full beards as a matter of choice appears to be a privilege accorded by nature solely to white males," she wrote.

Alarm bells, red lights, and screaming klaxons went off in Randy's mind when he happened across that phrase.

"But this assertion buys into a specious subsumption. 'Nature' is a socially constructed discourse, not an objective reality [many footnotes here]. That is doubly true in the case of the 'nature' that accords full beards to the specific minority population of northern European males. Homo sapiens evolved in climatic zones where facial hair was of little practical use. The development of an offshoot of the species characterized by densely bearded males is an adaptive response to cold climates. These climates did not 'naturally' invade the habitats of early humans--rather, the humans invaded geographical regions where such climates prevailed. This geographical transgression was strictly a sociocultural event and so all physical adaptations to it must be placed in the same category--including the development of dense facial hair."

Computer languages have facial hair? (2, Funny)

PortHaven (242123) | more than 6 years ago | (#23242264)

I presume the article that is not loading is about the corresponding relationship of programmer's facial hair and the language they work in - versus computer languages themselves actually having facial hair.

C++ (that must be nasty hair growing out of an ear. I had a Chemistry professor with that problem in college)

I had an English teacher in high school with the same problem. The entire class was sure he had relatives who were werewolves.

Why a man as he gets older needs more hair in his ears and less of it on the top of his head where you'd think he needs it is a trait that neither a Bible thumping Baptist preacher nor Charles Darwin himself would dare to try and explain.

In the meantime, laugh. It's funny, but it'll happen to you. It starts with a few nose hairs growing longer than all the others, then a few eyebrow hairs doing the same, then it's a hair or two sprouting on your nose (yes, ON your nose), before it takes hold in places you never think to check and definitely can't reach with a razor. If you're unlucky, you'll end up looking like a troll (or worse, Andy Rooney!), and everyone will laugh behind your back. If you're lucky, you'll just be another old fart with a bad combover that people will want to ignore.

Well, what's your yardstick? Fortran has been very influential, and it has been successful in academia. Since it was designed as a language for science, I suppose you could call it successful.

Still, taking a broader look at it with respect to who is using it today, and how much code has ever been written in it... you can see how it might be judged unsuccessful.

I don't have an opinion on it, but I can see both sides.

Re:Fortran isn't successful? (1)

Richard Steiner (1585) | more than 6 years ago | (#23242576)

FWIW, Fortran is still used heavily in the airline industry. Generating optimal flight plans, doing weight and balance and optimal flap/thrust calculations, etc. We had between 10 and 20 million LOC in Fortran at NWA, I'd estimate, and that includes the "new" flight planning system.

Yup. I maintain and update FORTRAN code at work for aerodynamic heating. A friend of mine getting his PhD in CFD and wrote a new CFD code in FORTRAN, he's relatively young and they still churn out new FORTRAN where he works. People still write new FORTRAN all the time, it's just not the glitzy, open source, "look at me" FORTRAN, it tends to be more of the big iron and computational stuff.

But I tend to prefer c++.

Since I wear a goatee, I should write a computer language! I noticed that Thomas E. Kurtz's black and white picture in TFA (yes, I did. I must be new here) bears a striking resemblance to me at one point in my life, although his mustache is a lot thinker than mine ever was and his glasses are a lot nerdier than mine were. And I never EVER wore a suit and tie unless somebody got married or buried.

I don't understan the "However, today this light weigh [sic] language losing it's [sic] popularity (less then 2% of the industry). This why: [sic]" with a picture of a much heavier geezer still wearing a mustache but less nerdy glasses. I don't get the author's point, as the facial hair is the same in both pictures.

James Gosling, meanwhile, bears a striking resemblance to Dave Irvin, a local businessman who couldn't use a computer as a doorstop, let alone write a computer language..

What is the one thing all the folks in those pictures have in common?

I believe Neil Armstrong also said "I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises," so I question whether that's actually true. Interestingly, if you Google that saying, there are a few different versions. It would be nice to know the exact words he said, since many versions leave off the "running around doing exercises" part, completely changing the meaning.
