Needlessly abject

I am not a teenager. I play one on the Internet.

The Kids These Days...

I meet young adults in my work with the program, and some of them, by virtue of their proximity to my home, stay in touch with me.

One such young gentleman works at the coffee shop / restaurant that Stephanie and I frequent most Saturday nights. He stops by our table and talks to me about his college CS exploits. Tonight, he mentioned that he was taking a class in Java programming. Being 19 years old, he started programming with languages like C# and I asked him what he thought of Java, and how he'd contrast that to languages and API environments he was already familiar with. To slightly paraphrase what he said:

"Programming in Java after using C# is like having a hot chick break up with you, and, in desperation, deciding to date her retarded twin sister."

Not very sensitive or politically correct, but funny as hell.
