A useless programming language one is forced
to lean in high school, instead of a highly useful and relevant language like C, C++, Java, etc.
Mr. Pedersons AP Pascal class
grade was the turning point
- I could have been a successful high
paid software engineer, but after having my soul crushed by that archaic monstrosity
that I knew I would never use in any professional context, I ended up as a janitor cleaning
toilets. I drink myself to sleep
every night, sad and lonely in my van down by the river thinking of what could have been if they had taught me C instead.
