O(1) sorting algorithm for an array of size N: Sort by Insertion of Graham's Number. Starting with any unsorted array of integers, append Graham's Number at the end of it. Now the final value of the array is vastly larger than all preceding values as to render them completely insignificant, thereby effectively sorting the array in ascending order.

@brion yeah I ended up switching back to regular cold press coffee after nearly going up a whole pants size.

My coworkers and I were talking about nested try/catch blocks in PHP code, and my thinking is the following should be a maxim if it isn't already: If the compiler lets you do something dumb, then eventually someone will be dumb enough to implement it in their code.

@da The story changes every time I hear another update, so I honestly have no idea what they are planning
