It is actually not a bad language and with an IDE like Eclipse or inteliJ you can be quite productive. Sure, they've screwed up majorly a couple of times like inventing JSP and going a bit overboard with J2EE. Overall it is not bad.

Just as the guy with two broken legs can get around a little bit using a wheelchair. Yes, the wheelchair might be great, but the poor bastard still can't dance.


  This is related to my wheelchair, I suppose. Just
  because I can't walk, people would ignore me when
  making plans to go dancing or maybe even just go for
  coffee. The place probably isn't accessible or they
  think, what would a girl who can't walk do when we go
  clubbing or dancing? Honestly, I dance better than
  you, and I'm only moving my upper body.

EDIT: It took a couple tries to get the formatting write. Anyway, I'm just saying that 1) You shouldn't just call people in 'poor bastards', and 2) There are people in wheelchairs who can dance well and enjoy it a lot.
