I guess doing C++ trained me to have huge lumps of information about in
my head. ;-)

In a discussion I once had about languages and the wars that ensue, I
came to the conclusion that if every programmer took the language
definition/standard of their favorite language and dropped it over their
head from a significant height, C++ would be a LOT less popular! :-))
