I find it humorous that some people will rail against talk radio, claiming that it turns people into mindless drones following the directions of a disembodied voice coming out of an electronic device, then get into a 3000+ lb projectile, turn on a GPS and become a mindless drone following the directions of a disembodied voice coming out of an electronic device.

GoTo-less programming language that was proposed (as a joke) a while back:

10 A=17
20 B=42
30 A=A+B
40 COMEFROM 20
50 PRINT A

> RUN
17

Fans of GO TO (or GOTO, depending on language) would appreciate the GO TO (computed) and the COBOL ALTER statements. Alas, the Alter statement was dropped from the COBOL standard in 1985.
