    So I went to check out Code Academy this morning at the word of a friend. The first thing that comes up is a dialog that asks you to input some maths to solve and I, being the brilliant scientist that I am devised an equation to trump this system; needless to say, the ensuing result was quite pleasing.


    > (420^69) + 1337 (my input equation)


    ==> 1818 (mathematical failure; eat a dick, machine)

    I wanted to see how much effort they put into the calculator! Sheesh, some people. Taking things personally, on the internet, that have nothing to do with them. And there's no C++ so I'm all "fuck dat sloppy code bullshit".

    I tried out code academy to try and get better at it as it was a pretty vital part of my uni course, but im shit at it. and still am. but thats a very poorly coded calculator. theyre not even hard to code in C
