navigating a world which feels like gravity is working in reverse

Maybe I’d get along in the world if programming were more like interacting with people. Some interpreter errors:

ERROR: You missed a curly bracket somewhere but I don’t want to lower your self-esteem so I ran the code anyway.

ERROR: I’m just going to give you a white screen and you figure out what you did wrong. (this actually happens)

ERROR: You threw an error three years ago and I haven’t gotten over it so I’m throwing you another error.

ERROR: You must believe in this code in order for it to work.

ERROR: You don’t look good enough right now for me to let you run this code.

ERROR: Try running this code on other computers. I do not want to see any of your code any more.

ERROR: I’m not going to tell you what’s wrong with your code but am going to just run it and watch it brutalize your data.
