Macros can be useful but I feel like we should ban certain people from touching them.

For example, imagine if someone were to use the C preprocessor to create an elaborate object orientation system for C, calling it GObject, and then create an entire graphics stack up to and including a desktop environment, called, say, GNOME.

Omg, "born" as in "being born", coming to life is also the past participle of "bear". Your mother is bearing you into the world, you are being born. It's the same word as "borne" in "airborne", just traditionally spelled differently.

Never realised until now.

I just learned some #English today too, looks like.
