Okay so I'm not sure why it sent way before I was ready... I guess gmail
thought it was funny or something.
Anyhow, we didn't get to any programming, just flow-chart. The lab (2 hours)
will be spent writing a program that took me about 5 minutes in python.
1 name = raw_input('Enter Employee Name:')
2 hours = int(raw_input('Enter Employee Hours Worked:'))
3 wage = float(raw_input('Enter Employee Wages:'))
4 print name, 'earned $' + str(wage*hours)
Four lines. I don't even think I'll be able to write a program that does
/nothing/ in c++ with four lines.

To be considered stupid and to be told so is more painful than being called
gluttonous, mendacious, violent, lascivious, lazy, cowardly: every weakness,
every vice, has found its defenders, its rhetoric, its ennoblement and
exaltation, but stupidity hasn't. - Primo Levi
