There is an art to writing good comments in your code...but sometimes not-so-good works too.

I was editing a program that I wrote maybe 10 years ago, for my own personal use, and have never touched since.  While doing so, I found this comment:

/* Dear Steve-from-the-future, this is Steve-from-the-past.

   You almost certainly think I messed up here and that the

   code could be cleaned up with a trivial fix about 5 lines

   down from here. Well don't! It’s like this for a reason!

   Hope you're enjoying the flying cars and personal rocket packs. */

…I have no memory of ever writing that - but I heeded my own advice and left the code alone.
