I remember a client wanting the webpages to be "editable" like word.
Not a CMS, as in I want to click on the page and edit parts.
In my frustration I just made the entire main div editable using the editable tag, and as long as you where logged in it would just save any of the changes to a database table holding the code for each page.
Edit: No sanitising input, just giving these people full access to changing anything via that editable tag.
Obviously editing anything but minor text changes, was a nightmare and selecting styles required copying and pasting text that was already there.
I got called into a meeting in front of the whole company, and the project managers clapped and stood up.
Amongst all the praise for solving this impossible task in a couple of hours I remember the lead programmer just slowly shaking his head from the back of the room.
I've since left that company and have no idea what nightmarish pandoras box I opened by doing that.
I don't know what I've made, but I find it calming.
The rack is built, the servers are installed.
All is right in the world.
the two ear problem is that cat girls tend to have car ears on the top of their head BUT ALSO human ears... or do they? as most of them are feminine they have long hair so you can't see their ears, do they have two sets of ears or is it just smooth skin? I NEED TO KNOW
oh my god, apparently the license for the original implementation of JSON states

and because of this the FSF considers it a "non-free" license <https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/License:JSON>
part of the Mastodon experience is getting followed by an account with a name like The Teeth Gobbler, and you're 98% sure it's one of your jackass friends but who can be certain.
and then for the next 48 hours it makes dozens of posts like "gonna eat them teeefths" and photoshopped images of teeth occupying multiple slots on the food pyramid.
and finally a week later the whole thing is abandoned unceremoniously and gone, lost in time like teeth in the rain.
