About The Contest
The first ever Olympiad of Misguided Geeks contest at Worse Than Failure (or OMGWTF for short) is a new kind of programming contest. Readers are invited to be creative with devising a calculator with the craziest code they can write. One lucky and potentially insane winner will get either a brand new MacBook Pro or comparable Sony VAIO laptop.
Entry #100334: Malificent Calculatory Strithmatic
Picture a person, a person with just enough know-how to be dangerous. Then imagine this person being assigned a task and being given absolute latitude in its execution. Why not store a binary number as a string? Why not discover malloc and never quite make it to free? Why not do excessive rounding to make numbers that repeat fit the test cases?
Simply it was an experiment in "why not"?
