    This reminds me of some of my coworkers:

    Macheath: I cannot believe code this old is running in production.

    Coworker #1: At least there are comments!

    Coworker #2: Just because it's old code doesn't mean it's bad code. Banks run code older than 15 years.

    Macheath: No. But it's old technology. I'd rather not be doing C memory management in a 78KB buffer just because it was the best option when Smash Mouth was still a band. There are more possibilities now. Christ, Java was still version 1.2 in 1999.

    Coworker #3: You know the version of Java in 1999 off the top of your head?

    Macheath:

    (I pulled that out of my ass, but turns out I was right.)

    Smashmouth is on tour with Sugar Ray and Blues Traveler this summer.

    That's very nineties. They just need to invite Stone Temple Pilots, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Limp Bizkit for a full set.

    STP has been a drama bomb over the last year.

    Big Bad voodoo Daddy... I listened to them a lot in high school.

    You've gotta have a lot of time on your hands to waste it reproducing the Simpsons in CSS.

    Just wrote this in my .bash_profile, I'm so proud!

    Code:
    sine() {
        i=1;
        t=$(($(tput cols)-5));
        while true; do
            n=$(echo "((1+$(echo "scale=3;s($i*0.017453293)"|bc -l))*$t)/2"|bc);
            printf "%"$n"s *\n";
            i=$(($i+1));
        done
    }

    Reminds me of a lot of conversations I've had during late-night coding:
