My nephew is insisting that he is nocturnal and it is now morning and he is sleeping but that he is up and about because he is sleepwalking. Meanwhile the 6yo is running around yelling "cockle-doodle-doo! It's night time now! I'm the night rooster!"

The thing about git is that you can completely understand the underlying logic and still be flabbergasted that there's no way to perform obvious tasks without writing a script.
