    La programación actual es una carrera entre los ingenieros de software que se esfuerzan por construir mejores y más grandes programas a prueba de idiotas, y el universo que intenta producir idiotas más grandes y mejores. Hasta ahora, el universo esta ganando.

    پروگرامنگ آج سافٹ ویئر انجینئرز کے مابین ایک دوڑ ہے جس میں بڑے اور بہتر بیوقوف پروف پروگرام بنانے کی کوشش کی جارہی ہے ، اور کائنات بڑے اور بہتر بیوقوفوں کو تیار کرنے کی کوشش کر رہی ہے۔ اب تک ، کائنات جیت رہی ہے۔

    今天的編程是一場軟件工程師之間的競賽,他們努力構建更大更好的防白痴程序,而宇宙則試圖產生更大更好的白痴。到目前為止,宇宙正在獲勝。
