Here it is, straight from the "olden times" of pm, as it appeared on my homenode for some time:
And now it has come time to Shoot Yourself in the Foot
You stab yourself in the foot repeatedly with an incredibly large and very heavy Swiss Army knife.
You pick up the gun and begin to load it. The gun and your foot begin to grow to huge proportions and the world around you slows down, until the gun fires. It makes a tiny hole, which you don't feel.
That was an excerpt from the famed "How to Shoot yourself in foot in $programmingLanguage". Here's my version:
You stab yourself in the foot repeatedly with an incredibly large and very heavy Swiss Army knife, causing a big mess, but accomplishing your goal. Some time later, you figure out how to take apart the knife and use it properly, so you stab yourself again, but with greater precision and ease.
