A week ago there was a thread about computer or something. And someone talked about "simulating duck sex". I don't know, it was the funniest phrase I ever read. But now, I cannot find that thread where that phrase was used. I searched it myself, but unsuccessfully. Can someone here help me find that thread?

A search for "duck sex" turned up five results. You people need to get a life!

I think this is what you were looking for. It is funny.

It's outgrown because it's impossible to adapt. It comes with a class for everything, and for precisely that reason, it's useless. Want to write a simulation of duck sex? Use the animals.duck.procreation class. Want to write a program to tell fortunes? Use the mystic.madame.cleo class. You know what I mean? No control over anything. Writing in Java is like being babysat. Or perhaps sat upon.
