    But if you have to, you can at least enjoy it:
    - diversity makes life interesting: use switch() with local variables or
    without curly braces
    - de-referencing is like a hotel: the more stars, the better
    - observe proper punctuation: use the comma operator frequently
    - know thy C: few people know that 5[x] is valid, but they can usually
    guess what it does. They probably won't get x[5[y]], though.
    - know thy CPP: nest macros and exercise token-concatenation and
    stingification
    - if your code allows you to, put #define while if in some header file
