Python creator Guido van Rossum sys.exit()s as language overlord


Really, because Python-style whitespace-based control flow is any more difficult for our powerful human visual cortex to process. Maybe that's why there's multiple competing styles on how to write that... oh, wait, no, that's brackets.

I always derive a certain sense of Schadenfreude by imagining how people who complain about whitespace in Python would fare in times when not being able to move your arse out of your comfort zone meant not noticing that new-in-the-area predator preparing to ambush and maul you.
