A function that returns insanity

A function that returns insanity

Playing around with a bit of pseudo-code today (loosely based off C#).  It’s a bit of a nerd-play off of the concept of “Build. Fly. Crash. Repeat.

 

I originally started out with a function that returns “happiness”.  Here is what it looked like:

Low Sugar Diet or Low Fat Diet? You decide.

Sorry for the long and boring medical post, but if you have weight or cholesterol issues, it might be worth a read.

Modern Family”iSpy” (Season 5 Episode 514) Feb 5, 2014.

The latest Modern Family episode on ABC included a humorous bit about parents using a quadcopter to spy on their son to see if he was up to no good. I won’t spoil it for you…so I won’t reveal if he was or was not in trouble based on what they found.
