Make mine FORTRAN, please

October 2, 2011

It’s a perfect setup: I really should carry a piece of chalk in my backpack for occasions like this.

Free Bible Now in any language

Chalk message on campus: "Free bible in any language"

(I don’t actually know anything about FORTRAN except that it’s a programming language but it would be fun to not tell them that and see if they try to find a bible in it.)

    Hey George,
    I did take Fortran back in the 70′s. It was Bloomington High School’s intro course for programming. Once the programming herd was thinned out by Fortran, the smarter students could then go on to take COBOL. Anyway, it took about 75 keypunch cards just to program writing your name with Fortran. Back in those days, many trees would have to die an untimely death to print out either the old or new testament. If you had syntax errors…chop-chop! :-)
