    I’m surprised he didn’t put the default case 😀

    I can bet that he tried!
    But the compiler raised an error at the last return, “code unreachable” 😀

    ahaha you are right 🙂
    I think that these examples would be even more enjoyable if we could follow their mental processes.
    When i find such programing pearls and It is possible to ask to the author: “WHY?” , the explaination is often funniest than the code.

    I hope to talk right about such arguments, here in comments!
    Things like ‘howintheworld anyone would come at THIS!!’ =)

    With this one, I think, the developer come to this ‘solution’ after a few iteration… the application was intended to do several actions, but after some pruning only one lasts and the code was leaved as it was =)
