You look inside of the function that appears to always be breaking and you find something amazing. Something pristine. It’s the most immaculate code you have ever witnessed in your entire life. Everything is commented, there’s links to github repos, and even academically reviewed papers. If the thing wasn’t code, it would have been a journal article. It even had a freaking readme file.

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
