LOL What? Stop with the jazz hands. "Go google it" is not a valid counter argument.

It is a valid means of educating yourself Skel. You got Bob excited with the Jazz Hands once, twice is pushing it, if you go for a third, it's boring.

It's a defensive mechanism, and I get that, but you're not doing yourself any favors by being willfully ignorant. You can't tell me you understood Hash tables all that well, or you wouldn't have made the mistake you did.

Maybe you should go for rage comics next, or perhaps lolcats, but when you're done, you still won't be any better off than when you started, oversimplifications in the name of "demystifying" won't help you either.

Don't educate people to be ignorant.

Everyone who has fed this argument in this topic is silly.

Including me...

RP, can't you just tell us the answer already? I'm too lazy to Google, and I consider you one of my foremost sources of knowledge anyway.

Everything has an end, except for the sausage. It has two.

That's not a defense mechanism. You keep telling me I'm wrong about something, and when I ask what it is you tell me to go google vague vocabulary. That to me, is jazz hands. Teach a man to fish and he might catch a tire. Give a guy fish and at least you're guaranteed it's a fish.

RP's just trolling to try to save some face. He's been utterly shut down and shown to be a fool, so now he has to try to rescue the shreds of his reputation that are left, when in fact he's just digging his grave deeper. This is a common tactic of his--insist that someone is wrong, but not say why. Why won't he say why? Because you're not actually wrong. If you were wrong, it would be easy to point to something concrete.

It's sad and pathetic, really.

I honestly don't even know what we're arguing about anymore, but this is fun :) Something about implied performance. All I was trying to do was offer the simplified understanding of data structures in general that I gleaned from college. Of course they all work differently and have different advantages/disadvantages, but they're still just nodes and pointers. At least for me, seeing them as just simple common building blocks makes understanding the more complicated bits much easier. It "demystifies" it.

And there's nothing wrong with that. The problem is that RP already fired the nukes, and he's incapable of admitting he's wrong, so now he has to try to invent a scenario where he's justified in his actions.

He's sort of a microcosm of the US government...

From an implementation standpoint, I don't see anything wrong with Skel's original assertion.

From a usage standpoint, that's where I start to disagree.

But not like ten pages of stupid disagree.
