Now I've seen everything...

You know you live in dangerously interesting times when #define private public is a major plot driver in a primetime Kannada soap, complete with grayscale triple takes and grand orchestra background music.

The cognitive dissonance that arose from hearing this dialogue in a Kannada serial put my brain in complete disarray, master. This was the best I could do..

Innu eneno chitra vichitravaada, mai navireLotaraha, vaacham-agochara-romanchanavaago antha plot twist-ugulu idduvu guru.. the hero is a perfectionist who never has bugs in his code..but the villainous seductress whose charms he has resisted (he cast her out of scope :P) gets a minion to insert this insidious line into his piece of code. However, the manager is sympathetic to him (former crush), and they both proceed to discuss in appata shuddha Kannada about how to trap said seductress (try {} catch?)

Whoa. I thought the song about an IRC bot was interesting (oh those crazy Swedes!), but this, in Kannada, just blows that away. :-)

"#define private public" is such an excellent idea... as the everything2 node says, maybe I should also put "#define class struct" for when 'private' has not been explicitly specified. :-)

That, my man, is the weirdest thing I've seen in ages. The worst part is, the song is actually quite nice and hummable, and I can imagine a state when the songs lyrics would actually be touching - but God I don't want to! Also, this I think marks the 14 zillionth amazing thing that you have dug out and kindly shared, that I could not possibly have ever bumped into otherwise :-)

And yes, it is quite amazing in Kannada.. I tell you, I foresee an age of great popularity and celebration of all such hitherto restrained genius. We're sure to replace the Scandinavians and 4chan as the craziest, trippiest, most random ...entities in existence. The canary in the coalmine is this video
