to skip a return statement

Would I consider the flagrant waste of even 10% of cycles through the addition of a redundant and purposeless extra keyword, an affectation who's time has past. Emphatically so!.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
