    The answer is 0xff since:

    Code:
    0x2b | ~0x2b = 0xff

    This is the funniest thing I have read in quite some time .

    Though this isn't programming related, I think you might find The Superest funny.

    I was begining to wonder if people read that joke or not.

    As they say humor is relative. Something one person thinks funny (such as messing up peoples databases by naming your child something odd) some might not get. And if you have to explain a joke it's no longer funny I've heard.

    Just optimizing smcd's code a little...
    Code:
    int question = 0x2b | ~0x2b;
    There! Now the comment is no longer required!

    I was merely reaffirming that it was the question!

    I also noticed that it isn't any funny when you have to explain the jokes. Though some easier, more general, jokes after explaining may generate some laugh, I attempted to say this one to one of my friends, who doesn't really know a lot about computers, and after 5 minutes of explaining, it wasn't funny to him. And I told this same joke to another friend, who has some bigger understanding of computers, found it really funny after 10 seconds of deep thinking about it.

    I guess that when you do have to explain the joke, the funniness of the joke depends on the time you took to explain it. I noticed that the best jokes are the ones which aren't immediately clear and the target people take a few seconds of thinking to fully understand them. Also when there is a group of several people and some don't get the joke, it is always funnier to them when the joke is explained by the ones who got it, and not the one who said it in the first place. And a final thought - when the joke is understood by every person in the group at almost the same time after ~2 seconds of thinking, it generates the biggest and longest laugh.

    More Programming humor (SOS)

    SOS - scream on stupidity

    For those who have EVER dealt with instruction sets this one should make you feel ... a bit less serious about them:
    A proposed instruction set for a microprocessor from Brian Dulap of Ohio State University.

    Hilarious thread!

    Ok now a few people here will definitely appreciate these.
    Posted on Keil's forums:
    The I DEMAND thread (nuclear proliferation treaty be damned!)
    The I want a "small" windows program on my 80C51 thread.

    Ahhh some people ... PS these are people way older than 20 my guess.
