How depressing is your source code?


Check this bit of comedy gold out I found it on metafilter.com.

I've written a little program to find out. It works by extracting the comments from the source code and feeding them into Synesketch, a textual emotion recognition and visualization engine. The program ignores documentation comments, because those are written for public consumption. I'm only interested in the comments used for private communication between team members.
