semi-colon strokeBy: Gehalgod
Stroke = desperately needed success or revelation after much labor (stroke of luck, stroke of brilliance)
Semi-colon = the missing character that often fucks up lines of code
"Dude, did you manage to fix that nasty bug?"
"Yeah, this morning I had a sudden epiphaline."
Epiphany + (code) line
"I finally finished that thing with an end feeling of relived-annoyance." "Why?" "The solution was too easy not to get but I didn't get in anyway."
voidesvilleBy: Pilcrow Interpunct
So there I was, really putting all the extra details into that stupid joke. I wasn't just going for a shaggy dog story this time. We're talking about the 75 pounds of extra wool an escaped sheep gets after a year on the lam. I'm talking about some seriously random details added. Anyway, Lore Sjöberg was there, he'll tell you. I dropped the punchline on 'em and got ... serious nodding. I couldn't believe it. It was total voidesville, man. Like Fatty Arbuckle had just been indicted.
Murphy's cousin's lawBy: boofar
Murphy's Cousin's Law states that if anything broken is shown to another person, it will inevitably begin to work again, thus complicating the actual problem solving process. Despite the appearance of being fixed, Murphy's Cousin's Law is actually consistent with Murphy's Law because something is going wrong as you're trying to diagnose what's going wrong.
"I swear to god that the toilet could not flush a few minutes ago," I say to the noisy plumber. He replies THAT I MUST HAVE JUST GOTTEN PROBFOOLED, deafening me for life.
Being the Hero of CantonBy: TheSquid
"Yeah it's funny right? I said that to some people earlier but no one got it, I was totally the hero of Canton."
The phrase is perfect because it is itself a reference that not everyone will get.
