Probably not surprising but one of the hardest parts of being a programmer for me is dealing with all the coder groupies. Sure, it was kind of cool at first before I was getting recognized out on the streets. I'd go to the club, see some babe and say, "#include <iostream>." Then she'd go totally wild and savage.
But now the word is out about me. The women are like hungry pitbulls eyeing a steak. It's exhausting. Maybe I should have chosen a milder hobby like part time rock star.
I turned to religion because of this. Living the night life starts to take tolls on you as a person. All the pointless sex. The drugs. I was losing gaps of time in my memory from using. I realized I wasn't the person I wanted to be. Then I found God. Until lately, the whole religion thing hasn't made much sense to me. It's all been a mish mash of obviously made up ideas. This one is different though. It just makes logical sense to win32 virgins in heaven as opposed to the Islamic 72. Everything is so clear now.
don't let the girls know you are a parallel computing expert - then you end up with a bus load full of chicks when you leave the club because they know you can satisfy them all at once and end up receiving tons of marriage proposals because many woman want a man who can multitask.
