I still remember when I started programming, I wrote in QBASIC without
indentations. I honestly saw no reason to indent because I still can see
the program flow as clearly as the bottom of a bucket of crystalline
water. No decisions to be made, everything is consistently justified left.

I still remember asking a friend, "Why is your code jagged like that?"
and him looking at me a bit confused at the question.
