if functional programmers are witches, then assembly programmers are druids, don't @ me

java programmers are paladins, as are c++ programmers, but they are followers of two different gods. one of the sun, the other of the globe

@SuricrasiaOnline I have no clue what this means and I agree

Please elaborate this for more types of programmers

@SuricrasiaOnline what about people who try to be functional programmers but really end up with half their program being held together with bash scripts and imperative duct tape?

@SuricrasiaOnline *a large crow flies overhead. as it passes with a loud caw, something small drops from its talons. it is the torn-off corner of a page from a phone book, wrapped around half of an obviously pecked walnut shell. the note, written in longhand with purple ink from a fountain pen, says "javascript"*

@SuricrasiaOnline followers of PHP can be found in functional and object-oriented, so PHP witches and PHP ... paladins?
