I'm talking rolling on the floor laughing bad. Like, one of those "I can't breathe" kind of laughter moments.

Show me your best...or worst!

My worst coding error would probably have to be making a 300+ line program and running it, just to see that my indentation was wrong. Mind you, there were a plethora of indentations :(

sometimes I forget to write a semicolon in my line and also I forget to save my program and do a direct click on the execution.

doing some template modifications on a 5-6 year old wordpress site at work I ran into this little gem from the previous dev (this was attached to a template hook):

function do_rag() { echo '<div class="head-wrap">'; }

Umm..... Let me think. I um... I don’t know XD. Anyone here know a funny mistake I asked about? Or just wandering through my repls?

defining a struct that's dependent on another before defining the original struct in C++

typedef struct POINT { float x, y; ... void operator+=(const VECTOR v)... ... }POINT; typedef struct VECTOR { float x, y; ... }VECTOR; #endif

gave me terrible unhelpful linker errors that took hours to figure out

and of course, the classic missing semi-colon error

I haven't had any super funny mistakes, but I'll get back to you (after I purposefully code some errors)

Anyways, I would really want to see what the repl community can come up with!
