The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post


Recommended Posts



That is old King's Cross station in London, probably around late forties.  It was massively remodeled in the 1960's through to present time and now could be a station just about anywhere.


Looks like this now 




But at least it boasts platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter movies.

Reminds me as a prop for the joke.


Married man brings glass of water and 2 aspirin to wife.


Wife:  "What's this for, I don't have a headache...?"


MM:  "Well then..." (starts undoing his belt)


I think it's from the 60s that joke, when the running gag was "not tonight, I have a headache".

Could you write, without too much trouble, code that expresses the fact that my faux-nephew Colin is graduating High School next week, to wit: 

Phase I: Childhood : Complete. 
Phase2: Primary School: Complete
Phase 3 (College) Open...

It would be an interesting challenge. No worries if you can't ... Just thought it would be a cool puzzle for him to solve.  Java, C++, does't matter. Whatever you can do.


/* Don't remember what I did here */

Colin.education_level := Kindergarten;

/* ...more hand-waving... */

Colin.education_level := elementary_school;

while (Colin.education_level <= 6) do



Colin.education_level_completed := elementary_school;

Colin.education_level := high_school;

while (Colin.grade_level < 12) do



Colin.education_level_completed := high_school;

Colin.education_level := college;

while (Colin.education_level_completed <> college) do
