My favorite Jon Skeet Facts:

  • When Jon Skeet's code fails to compile, the compiler apologises.
  • Anonymous methods and anonymous types are really all called Jon Skeet. They just don't like to boast.
  • If Jon Skeet posts a duplicate question on StackOverflow, the original question will be closed as a duplicate.
  • JONBERT
  • Donald Knuth wears a "Jon Skeet is my Homeboy" t-shirt to show off at parties.
  • Q: Can Jon Skeet ask a question that even Jon Skeet can't answer?
    A: Yes. And he can answer it, too.
  • Users don't mark Jon Skeet's answers as accepted. The universe accepts them out of a sense of truth and justice.
  • Superman wears Skeet pajamas to bed!
  • The Dining Philosophers wait while Jon Skeet eats.
  • Jon Skeet does not sleep.. He waits.
  • Google is Jon Skeet behind a proxy.

Enjoy your day on SkeetOverflow
