    RBAR – “Row By Agonising Row”. It’s a poor way to write SQL, and it’s pronounced “rebar”.

    Rebar keeps structures standing. And makes bar goers fall down. And is not a possibility for disbarred lawyers.

    NYC has some really well named drinking establishments, including ‘Bar Fly’ and the late, lamented ‘Mars Bar.’

    As a teacher, you’re performing a valuable service by preventing students like Rat from qualifying as structural engineers.

    In an 8th grade science test, one thing was to define physical properties. My answer was a house owned by a guy that works out.

    The teacher didn’t mark that as incorrect…

    I thought Rat would define rebar as hitting Neighbor Bob with a bar a second time.

    A structural engineer like Rat could be the death of us all!

    Where did you say that bar is? Rebar, rebar, rebar!
