What is while ( tru ) { }

So you might be asking yourself what the hell my title actually means. Well, if you have not been exposed to any computer programming at all, then your question is completely relevant.

So to try to explain it very simply.....

It's an infinite loop. It will never stop looping. Don't worry about what is being looped through, because nothing is. Basically, once you are inside, you are never coming out. You can think about it as just some code or you can think about it another way. Since technically it the programming language it is probably TRUE, instead of TRU, it almost makes sense to think of it another way.

I like to think of it as how to treat life. If you treat life with the utmost respect, I do believe that's what you will get out of it. I have always believed that if you do good, good will come to you. Once that chain of good things has started, it won't stop. It will continue to happen for the rest of your life. I live by this and would say I have been pretty successful with it.

  1. The infinite loop was described well. I feel your sense of definition for it, and I like how vague the title leaves it yet it makes you wanna read more. I'm glad to hear your successful with your values!

  10. I don't believe do good and recieve good, but if realise that there is no point in getting anrgy or upset, there is only reason and figuring out a solution then all your problems become insignificant to your triumps.

  22. I definitely get what you're saying, as I live by the same guidelines, trying to be a good person in this world is probably harder than being a bad person. Karma, existent or not, is a good way of living.
