My friend Scott Davis suggests that long methods are like cancer. Right on! But let's be a little more specific:
- > 30 lines ~ pancreatic cancer
- 30 lines ~ brain cancer
- 15 lines ~ prostate cancer
- 8 lines ~ no cancer (yet--keep trying)
If you are fortunate enough to know nothing about cancer mortality rates, go back and follow the cancer link. Delightful surprise to my googling on the topic.
