How to shoot yourself in the foot in any programming language

Found Modula2 section very funny
Modula2 -
After realizing that you can�t actually accomplish anything in this language, you shoot yourself in the head.
- but never used this language, so cannot comment...

Had never even heard of Concurrent Euclid

...and C++, and Java, and Ruby, and Perl, JavaScript, and Fortran. And probably most of the others I'm just not sufficiently familiar with.

I've used Modula-2 - not too bad!

I like the one for Pascal - but that must be turbo pascal they are talking about, not UCSD Pascal.

I think the one for LISP should be changed to where the program modifies itself to shoot you in the foot.

I think the Motif one is pretty accurate!

Assembly is good too!
