What's the similarity between the D type system and making

Adapted from an Australian joke about U.S. beer (orig. Miller)
(Ozzie's revere their beer), the answer is .. <scroll-down-for-answer/>



























They are both f??king close to water. :-)

Making love is often equated with the act of copulation, in the vernacular called 'fucking'. In addition, that very same word is used as an intensifying adjective, in the same way as the word 'very'. Hence, making love in a canoe is akin to copulating in the adjacent to water, and D's type system is (by the original poster) considered as having the same structural integrity as H2O. -- Simen

I've never heard a type system being compared to water :-/ Even still, what makes D's type system watery?

Glad to hear that. :p

I believe this is related to the post about the type of null. Seeing as how null has no type, or at least none we may use, it is a hole in the system, reducing its value in the eyes of some people. The original joke was about beer, which is easier to compare to water - that means it is thin, without taste or other properties considered positive in beer. Back to the type system, such being watery would indicate it is weak, ad-hoc, full of holes, or otherwise in an unfortunate condition. -- Simen

Next time you could use few more blank lines between the question and answer. You know, 2560x1600 monitors are getting more and more popular. The post uses about 50% of the vertical space on my screen and I'm using "large" fonts.
