One of the Funniest Code Comments I’ve Read

From a production app:

// You would think this would be as easy as using chkSend.Checked.
// But no. Despite what Microsoft says about the page life cycle,
// the Checked property is not set at this point in the life cycle.
// Maybe it doesn’t ever get set at all because of the repeater.
// I don’t think anyone really knows.  It’s one of life’s great
// mysteries, like whether a falling tree makes noise if there’s
// no one around to hear it.  I think it does, but just like the
// Checked property ever being set, I can’t prove it.

Ha! That’s a good one — and one of life’s great mysteries, indeed.

That makes me think of doing searches in Google Labs code search for bad words. 😉

haha, this is indeed a mystery. This made me look in our own code repository; not at liberty to disclose the findings 🙂
