    I enjoy programming. A lot. But if sex doesn't provide you with something an order of magnitude more intense, then I think you're not doing it right :-)

    OTOH, maybe I don't program well enough :-O

      There is this incredible, cool, liberating feeling after hours of debugging complicated code when it finally works. A professor of mine called this an

      algorasm: n. (Origin: blend of algorithm + orgasm) A sudden, short-lived moment of pleasure enjoyed by the programmer when the final kludge rings the bell.

        Yeah, you know it! :)
