I found the above mentioned question at stackoverflow today, it got really lovely answers.
- So that you can read VB code on the blogs.
- Because you are designing a new language and you don’t want people to hate it.
- Answer Stackoverflow questions to get reputation because Jon Skeet will leave VB alone.
- For fun, adventure.
- Your girlfriend threatens to leave you if you don’t learn it.
And my favorite:
Because you don’t have enough misery in your life ? 😛
