You are stewing over this function when a coworker leans over and says, “Wow, you’ve been staring and cursing at that function for a really long time.”

“Yeah,” you reply. “I don’t know if I’ve ever hated anything quite like it in my entire life. It drives me, it makes me feel awful, yet, I can’t look away.”

“Let me ask you a question,” your coworker asks. “Have you heard of the story of Darth Python the Wise?”

  1. I have not, but I am interested
  2. Rewrite the function
  3. Google it
  4. Look at the function calling it
  5. Look at the complicated function being called inside of ReIterateThroughDataBaseGreaterThanZero(X,YIn,Params)
