The lion is not so fierce as they paint him, does it?
 
Don’t just read it; fight it! Ask your own questions, look for your own examples, discover your own proofs. Is the hypothesis necessary? Is the converse true? What happens in the classical special case? What about the degenerate cases? Where does the proof use the hypothesis?

someone is a terrible coder.
for all you non-geeks out there, you wouldn’t write (death == true) - it would just be (death) as the boolean test.

i hope that cake comes with a debugger

Maybe it should be a do-while loop and the while condition would be (death == false), death being a boolean variable for whether they are dead or not. Too far? Yeah probably.
