in reply to Favorite Descriptive Variable Name
When learning programming, some variables made me crazy ( I hate ('HELLO WORLD!'), confused... so I learned with 'themes'.. almost similar to the posting about the alcohol.. but I used food (always got hungry infront of the pc). $pizza = 8; this way it made the art of programming more fun and kept my variables in check.. (fast foods, italian, etc..).. it's a bit unorthodox, but it worked when learning... (and I did it once on the job, my boss freaked out!), but I do it no more. -Monk Bro Zo.
