They took out the "wait(5);" statement they put in when they originally
wrote the code, which was originally placed inside of a "foreach" loop so
that one day they could remove it, speed up performance by 3 orders of
magnitude, and then look like a genius to their boss and justify all of the
"code optimization" (i.e. reading blogs) they've been doing for the past 18

Or am I the only one who does this?
