Not content to commit war crimes by targeted killings of journalists; the sons of bitches have to even attack the damn pallbearers at the funeral with tear gas and batons! Why?

People at work that I have never met and never worked with who work in completely different departments are now messaging me asking for help writing code in languages I have never used before. Apparently I have a reputation?

And hey, I manage to figure that shit out...but I mean if you can't figure out how to make your C# website fire an onsubmit event mayyybe you shouldn't be doing that work on your own yet....lol

(I suspect half these people just don't want their team to know they need help)
