html - RegEx match open tags except XHTML self-contained tags - Stack Overflow
I think the flaw here is that HTML is a Chomsky Type 2 grammar (context free grammar) and RegEx is a Chomsky Type 3 grammar (regular grammar). Since a Type 2 grammar is fundamentally more complex than a Type 3 grammar (see the Chomsky hierarchy), it is mathematically impossible to parse XML with RegEx.

But many will try, some will even claim success - but until others find the fault and totally mess you up.

and then, my love, all your computation will be ready to run... on thousands...

I was considering Grad School…and then I saw this. HILARIOUS! | JOANNA RENTERIA
"How come Barbie can’t hack it but Ken is a grad school advisor? Unfortunately, this article seems to discourage women from pursuing higher education by suggesting that it will make them old, tired, cranky and unattractive. My husband is currently pursuing graduate education in business and it irks me to hear his female colleagues complain about the hours and workload but I honestly never hear complaints from his male student peers. I wish the amazingly strong and smart women who pursue graduate degrees would set a better example to encourage and pave the way for more highly educated women in the work force." -- Elyse October 28, 2013 at 6:47 pm

"Ken is able to be Grad Advisor Ken because he married Midge, who has a job, and takes care of him and the kids so he doesn’t have to worry about the details." -- Robin Rosbolt October 29, 2013 at 5:33 am

Good excuses NOT to use version control - Stack Overflow
" A younger programmer asked an elder about his code and his coding style, and how the older programmer would do certain things. The older programmer said 'Let's take a look at your code', so the younger took out his laptop, opened his editor, and showed him.

The older programmer looked at the code, thought about it for a bit, and then started editing it. He deleted the class internals, leaving only the structure, and then rearranged the structure, saying 'Here's how I would do it to make it more efficient and readable'. After he was done, he saved the file and gave it back to the younger programmer, who was ashen-faced.

'That... My code is gone!' said the younger programmer. 'But you have it in version control somewhere, right?' asked the elder. 'N.... no.' was the reply. 'Well then,' said the older, 'now you've learned two lessons.'"

And the young programer was enlightened.

Jokes: What are some of the most profound jokes ever? - Quora
A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says: "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must be an engineer" says the balloonist.

"I am" replies the man. "How did you know."

"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone."

The man below says "you must be in management."

"I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."
