This experiment arguably results in an artifact asserting the philosophical belief that nonexistence is morally preferable to existence, i.e. that the best stance is to prevent bad programs from coming into being.

I intend to demonstrate this principle in my new programming language that I'm inventing: 8BOL, which doesn't stand for anything.

8BOL is a non-functional programming language. The language specification indicates that programming in 8BOL doesn't work, and the reference implementation of the compiler simply rejects all inputs as invalid programs.

too tired to make good decisions such as going to sleep

I'm totally beat after a long day of resting. I've earned a break

Smilin' Stan wasn't just blowing smoke up our asses about the surprise on the back of the sweatshirt, either. that's all I'll say

I don't think there's a single video game in which, if it were an option, I wouldn't install a mod allowing the main character to wear the famous "here comes the Incredible Hulk" sweatshirt
