Programming is great because you can just take that huge messy chuck from the middle of your function and hide it away under a new name in a new function and feel good about how you "cleaned up" the original function by abstracting the internals.
This is exactly how I used to clean my room as a kid - I'd refactor all the junk on the floor to be under my bed. Boom - problem solved.
Ok, let's be honest.. that's still how I clean my room.
@bigzaphod its even better you can put it away in a whole different file
if its really bad you can make it into a *module* and publish it and never have to look inside ever again
its great i can never think about all the horrid things i've done out of laziness or spite
