Title: I felt cool for a while ...

... when I'd written a compiler for a small C-like programming language in one day as a school assignment, but then I realized Nicky has built a laser guided Volvo and shrunk back into reality.

Yeah, I'm fairly sure I doesn't make you cool.

Building a laser guided Volvo does, however.

Only if it goes back in time and shoots missiles at pesky Russians.

Where do you want it to guide you?  ???

Actually, that was my plan... I'll just have to find my old laser pen...

Carry a laser down the road that I must travel...

It is good to be in reality once in a while, but. WTF. You build a compiler for a C-like language. Cool. As a school assignment... What school is that? :)

Laser guided Volvo? I have a radio wave guided Mazda, didn't build it myself though.

Volvo that acts like kittens. Cute. WereVolvo with laserguidance sounds like a dangerous plan. Me likes :D

I'm doing a bachelor in Computer Science at Gothenburg University. Plans are to end up programming world-dominating AIs or something like that.

Found the essay... Yes, it beats your compiler project ;) But combined with proper AI -- a laser guided volvo, ruling the world...
