# Rubberduck on "A practical example of evenly distributing n lists into a single list"

One word.... VELOCIRAPTORS.

You seem like a nice guy, I don't want the raptors to get you...

The answer goes on to mention "The dreaded GoTo" and "Velociraptors" several times.

• I hate to say it, but I habitually +1 anything with an XKCD reference... Sooooo... +1. – Greg Burghardt Jan 2 '15 at 2:48
• Shouldn't XKCD be the ones to get the bounty if this would win? – Simon Forsberg Jan 3 '15 at 13:12
• @SimonAndréForsberg I would be ecstatic to have Randall Monroe amount our ranks. – RubberDuck Jan 3 '15 at 16:15

# Simon on 'Team Split' problem

One word:

Okay, maybe "one" more word.

These two "words" make the point clear about how readable the code was, and why it is good to use spacing.

I just realized that meta answers were eligible for nomination too, so...

# Mat's Mug on Can I put my code on a third party site and link to the site in my question?

Why? Because cats and the internet are like peas and carrots and I can't think of anything that could possibly drive home the reason we can't rely on external links for content than this.

• upvoted, cuz catz. – Malachi Jan 14 '15 at 22:02

## Comment by 200_success on Optimizing nested loop for an array within a list

Funny that @hamsaya chose to use birds as a hypothetical identifier when asking an off-topic question about nesting.

But really, we need to know the type of birds you are talking about to know what kind of nesting is appropriate. – 200_success♦ Sep 25 '14 at 17:37

• Funny as it is, I don't think this qualifies. It's not an answer. I do think it should stay here though because reasons. – RubberDuck Jan 8 '15 at 0:11
• @RubberDuck It is acknowledged that comments are not eligible to win. – 200_success Jan 8 '15 at 3:04

## 200_success on Wow that's a big integer! What's its largest prime factor?

What a fascinating solution! It seems that for every smart decision you made, you also threw in a poor decision or two.

To which RubberDuck said, a month later in chat:

This remains one of my favorite reviews. @200 cracks me up.

• Still makes me laugh too. ++ – RubberDuck Jan 5 '15 at 21:51

# Zirak on "How do I make this Average Function better?"

And what happens if you get an empty array? You divide by zero, which is MADNESS!! MADNESS I TELL YOU!

The answer actually points out some pretty serious bugs and design flaws (i.e. madness). I think it was a fantastic use of humor to really drive home the point.

# user50399 on "Numbers to words"

"Strone"? What's a "strone"? Oh… of course!
