Yep, there are some good ones in there. Although I think Yoda Conditions gets too bad a rap; there are reasons for it beyond the love of Star Wars, as is mentioned in the comments. Not everyone uses an IDE that will flag the problem.

I don't think a "bad rap" was intended when they put Yoda conditions in the list. It's just a descriptive name. Some people like them and some hate them, but either way, it's nice to have a good name. The guy who coined the term didn't really like them, but regarded them as sometimes beneficial or even necessary. Of course, the idea was around a long time before the term was coined.
This site is often my rubber duck. There have been several times that I've started to compose a post about a puzzling issue, when suddenly I realize what I'm doing wrong and I can just delete the message.
