The Last Straw

#1
Shurely this will cement my reputation as a real conehead, but what do you make of this?

  • Constantinople → Istanbul

    Istanbul & ¬Constantinople

    ¬Return(Constantinople)

    Time(¬Constantinople) = long

    TurkishDelight ↔ MoonlightNight

    for all Gal ∈ Constantinople, Lives(Gal,Istanbul) & ¬Lives(Gal,Constantinople)

    Conclusion: Date(you,Constantinople) → Waiting(her,Istanbul)

    OldName(NewYork) = NewAmsterdam

    Reason(changed,it) = Prefer(people,NewYork,NewAmsterdam)

    ¬Return(Constantinople)

    Time(¬Constantinople) = long

    Reason(Constantinople,works) = ¬Business(¬Turks)

Can you guess what it is, yet? :D

SFD - have a word with yourself - just 'say what you see' as that utter creep Roy Walker might say if he conjured up the bollox to register on ARRSE! :D

Evr'y gal in Constantinople
Is a Miss-stanbul, not Constantinople...

Ok - that's clearly defeated you...try this one:

  • 10 let x=10
    20 if x>1 then let b$="bears" else let b$="bear"
    30 if x>1 then let s$="roll over, roll over" else let s$="I'm sleepy"
    40 print x, b$, "in the bed, and the little one said", s$
    50 if x=1 then goto 90
    60 print "So they all rolled over, and one fell out."
    70 let x=x-1
    80 goto 20
    90 end

The value of 'x' can be changed to any other integer as required. Please note this is Basic.

10 let x=10
20 if x>1 then let b$="bears" else let b$="bear"
30 if x>1 then let s$="roll over, roll over" else let s$="I'm sleepy"
40 print x, b$, "in the bed, and the little one said", s$
50 if x=1 then goto 90
60 print "So they all rolled over, and one fell out."
70 let x=x-1
80 goto 20
90 end


output would be

10 bears un the bed and the little one said roll over roll over
So the all rolled over and one fell out

10 -1 = 9 goto 20

Is that sinclair basic darth or bbc basic :p

Hmmm..it works for me...what are you suggesting? Which line is bonk?

Edited to add: I'm using Red Squirrel as an emulator - clearly I don't actually have a BBC clanking away here! :D

GOTO's !!!


  • b := "";
    s := "";
    for f := 10 downto 1 do
    begin
    if f > 1 then
    begin
    b := "bears";
    s := "roll over, roll over";
    end
    else
    begin
    b := "bear";
    s := "I'm sleepy";
    end;
    writeln(IntToStr(f)+" "+b+" in the bed, and the little one said "+s);
    if f > 1 then writeln("So they all rolled over, and one fell out.");
    end;

  • f f=10:-1:0 d
    .i f>1 w !,f,"bears in the bed and the little one said roll over",!,"So the all rolled over and one fell out"
    .e w !,"0 bears in the bed and the little one said I'm sleepy"

Name that language
