I think it applies to poor corrgi as well.

Sometimes I think that the problem with sql is that its grammar is too close to real english (a subset, that is). Many queries you can read aloud and they almost make a sentence. So when a clueless person comes across SQL for the first time, they are less frightened by it (it's just like talking!) than they would otherwise be and so they take the plunge. It's the first step towards appearing on this twit list.

If it had less friendly syntax, e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Befunge the initial barrier would be higher. Maybe less twits.

Well, to me it was obvious from the beginning that that's what he wanted...

Kinda hope his boss fires him anyway, just for wasting everyone's time.

I don't have the heart to answer him

1. Call your Boss.
2. Tell him you quit your position since you can't understand how to work with computers...
