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?

        One Button App

        A trend among SV developers to make apps that perform it's function in a simple button press. Many hold the belief that if you can't do your apps function in one button, it doesn't pass the test for a powerful app in todays age. Whether that's true or not is a completely different story.

        Antonio: Yo is such a great one button app. I can send you Yo's anytime with the press of a single button.
        Zeeshan: Yo, stop sending me yo's.

          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.
