 How To Write Unmaintainable Code

This is the funniest programming article I have read in a while. If you understand the examples and apply them in reverse the article can also tell you how to avoid a bunch of programming problems.

"In the interests of creating employment opportunities in the Java programming field, I am passing on these tips from the masters on how to write code that is so difficult to maintain, that the people who come after you will take years to make even the simplest changes. Further, if you follow all these rules religiously, you will even guarantee yourself a lifetime of employment, since no one but you has a hope in hell of maintaining the code. Then again, if you followed all these rules religiously, even you wouldn't be able to maintain the code!"
