idk the way people cry when he says he doesn't like their code instead of asking well what would you change and just trying to argue back I guess that's what i mean by porcelain skin.
I really would love to meet him some day, maybe I'll have the money to hear him speak somewhere eventually

One of my managers is designing a website in wordpress and was trying to get the page to scroll to different positions. I had to explain to him how an anchor was could be a link, a spot on the page, or both. Here's the code I wrote to show him:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head></head>
  <body>

    <a id="top-of-page" href="#bottom-of-page">Go to bottom</a>

    <!-- spacer -->
    <div style="height:2048px;width:1px;"></div>

    <a id="bottom-of-page" href="#top-of-page">Go to top</a>

  </body>
</html>

Apparently this amazed him so much he took a picture of my code with his phone, and I was like "I can email it to you"
