In a way it's good that it's missing an entry for D, because he ain't got nothing good to say about any of the languages listed, except maybe for C. I like the C++ and the JS entries, the thing about Rust is also quite good.

The PHP entry one is cold.

Weird that PHP was even considered a programming language ;)

That page is awesome! I especially liked the C#, Rust, and Python's "...Also I probably should have used a line tool to draw that."

Hah! This just made my day :)

Not quite accurate. D is a samurai sword with a machine-gun attached that also has one of these bad boys on the other end: http://www.wimp.com/militaryshovel/ The problem is that it's many tools in one, some of which don't work as well as they could together, and make it a complicated tool to master (but extremely versatile when you do). It comes with an instruction manual that tells you the function of each different piece, but not how different pieces can be used together to make things easier.

I'd say it's a prototype laser blaster that has been proven to work. However, it isn't quite ready for mass deployment amongst the troops, or acceptance with the brass.

D is a modified version of a semi auto rifle to be fully automatic. Except in order to make one you have to read the manual, which is rare. Only professionals will be able to make one of these.

How can our beloved, can-do-anything C be a rifle that you cannot even reload until you shot all 8 bits of ammo ? -- Marco

Actually, dangerous as it is, you can probably even shoot without bullets!
