I was going to post this video...but I never got around to it...

It's much much worse when you procrastinate by learning truly useless
languages. I think I wasted the better part of a day once learning the
intricacies of brainfuck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainfuck),
including writing not just a brainfuck interpreter, but a brainfuck ->
C translator so I could compile my useless little programs for insane
crazy raw power.
