PG

An acronym used in forums referring to Paul Graham, founder of Y Combinator and creator of Hacker news. He spends his time tweeting about how much Y Combinator has grown and describing the perfect founder in a similar way that Cosmopolitan magazine describes the perfect man or woman.

I read a PG essay talking about how the perfect founder has an engineering degree, is always hungry, and lives with his founders in the same apartment. After graduating from Stanford,, we now live in Palo Alto in a one bedroom apartment without any food in the fridge other than raw ramen payed for using the profits of our company in which we are the only customers of.

Self made entrepreneur

A label meaning that an entrepreneur has come from nothing, has not inherited their wealth or startup. A lot of entrepreneurs have found a loophole because while inheriting a lot of money disqualifies one from being self made, receiving a shit ton of money and connections from your parents while they are alive doesn't.

John: How did you possibly hire 50 people without any VC funding. You told me you were self made?
Lyman: My dad gave me a ton of money and connections. Does that count?

The Rift

A title given to denote virtual reality. Popularized by people who have spent immense amounts of time in an Oculus Rift headset and were unable to fully communicate the things they had seen and experienced while present in what they consider a different realm.

Recruiter: Why should we hire you for our VR division?

Jack: Aye. In my time I have seen many things in the Rift. Things the likes of you, could never imagine...

Recruiter: Why are you crying?

Jack: I held my virtual daughter in my arms as the light vanished from her eyes. I fought dragons in Russia trying to protect the refugees of a city that's now burnt to the ground. I spent almost two years in isolation in the Rift reading about the ancient tombs of Java Script and Lisp. I'm hoping that this position will help me forget about my past. My time in the Rift.

Recruiter: Why am I crying...

Code Couple

Programming partners (in work or school) that are also involved with one another romantically.

Jeremy and Liz are the hottest code couple at Stanford. I hear after finishing their compilers projects they hold hands and read quantum computing books until both their bodies are exhausted.

Vestigial Code

A code probably once served a purpose, but doesn't anymore. You're afraid of removing it because after years it just looks right the way it is.

In evolutionary biology vestigial organs are the ones an organism probably once used but no longer serve a purpose today.

James: Dude help me debug my new one button app, "Dude."
Zeeshan: What is all this? None of it serves a purpose.
James: It's vestigial code that makes gives me confidence when making something new. I've just built everything on top of my dayspan code from freshman year until now. I commented it out, don't worry.
Zeeshan: You're a terrible human being, you know that?

    @memobug true. For some definitions using the actual word made the example flow a little worse so I leave it out if it's obvious. What do you think?
