These Lessons Anecdotal (Ode to Stack Overflow)

Played to the tune of “Message In A Bottle” by The Police

Just a question say, I’m completely in the trees, so
Another bug in the way, so c’mon help me please, oh
More erroneous than any scan can take
Rescue me before I lose my hair, oh


I’ll dump questions on the world
I’ll send dumb questions to the world
I hope that someone sees mine
I hope that someone knows mine
I hope that someone answers mine
Your guess is anecdotal, yeah
And these guesses cause me trouble, yeah


A week has gone since I wrote my post
I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Just a little luck and then we can release
No luck at all means we’re fucked


I’ll dump questions on the world
I’ll send dumb questions to the world
I hope that someone gets mine
I hope that someone knows mine
I hope that someone answers mine


Your guess is anecdotal, yeah
And these guesses cause me trouble, yeah
So, don’t be guessing on my post, no


Googled again this morning, can’t believe what I saw
Hundred billion questions popped into my chrome
Seems I’m not the only one that’s confused
Hundred billion other people, are searching for a clue
