(via reddit) Why programmers don’t like relational databases. Link
I know that every time I use SQL I want to claw my eyes out. Linq is lots better: No more horrible “… but take back half a cubit” scoping rules (and lots of other fixes).
[The cubit reference is to the height of the staff in the first Indiana Jones movie, which is specified as something like "Six cubits" on one side of an ancient artifact, but then modified on the other side, as if the contractor screwed up and had to issue a patch]
