We are superhumans!



https://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2007/02/why-cant-programmers-program.html
Seems that those of us who actually know how to program are superhumans!

Read this as well.

Formal logical proofs, and therefore programs - formal logical proofs that particular computations are possible, expressed in a formal system called a programming language -are utterly meaningless. To write a computer program you have to come to terms with this, to accept that whatever you might want the program to mean, the machine will blindly follow its meaningless rules and come to some meaningless conclusion.
