I put everything on the right, not having the text shift when I open and close panes is a big win in my book.

Wait, I’m constantly frustrated. Does this mean I’m not any good?

Friday and Saturday nights are a bit of the worst in the coronaverse.

I'm not what you would call a "good business person", but yesterday I finally made the smart move and cancelled a service I aspired to use, but never got around to actually using it. Learn from me, don't make that mistake.

I’m sure I’m missing something. I often do. 😂 Regardless, I’ve shared what I got. If it was helpful, cool, if not, no big deal.

Ha, you can understand my confusion given we are talking about math.

You shouldn’t be assigning with ++ though, you’re just asking for trouble. You should treat like a function that returns void and produces a side effect (the mutation). Just a bad idea to do = and ++ in the same statement. This is why all quizzes come from bad ideas 😂

This right here is why I think these shortcut assignment operators are a bad idea. We don’t need to save bytes anymore. Just write x = x + 1, no confusion whatsoever.

x += 1/x + 1 Is the same as x = x + 1/x + 1 I’m guessing you made a typo, right, because that would never equal x++

++ should be thought of as a mutating function, += is an assignment shorthand, they aren’t interchangeable, IMO

I would think of them differently. += is shorthand for x = x + value, it’s not short hand for x++

Granted, I may have missed the point entirely if the point is adding strings. + for concatenation was a mistake. That’s a type error in my opinion and if I ever see that coercion, I excise it from the code like the cancer it is.

I may have said it backwards, but the point is where the ++ goes makes a difference.

Oh I have no idea. I enjoy the many worlds theorem which postulates that an infinite number of all possible universes exist, that’s all I’m basing this joke on.

False equivalencies run soooo rampant here ha 🤦‍♂️

Can I move to an alternate universe where false equivalencies can’t be made?
