punish_severely();
} else {
exit(-1);
}

One of the comments posted on boingboing.net:

Todd Ogrin says,

The part that worries me most about the code snippet is that "punish_severely()" takes no parameters. Assignment error aside, I would expect it to say "punish_severely(terrorist);"

However, as it stands, all we know is that someone, somewhere is being punished severely, with no apparent relation to their status as a terrorist.

I feel safer already.
