Via my friend Sean, here's a fun Destroy All Software lightning talk by Gary Bernhardt, called "Wat." It seems to be aimed at expert programmers but if you're just learning how to code (as I am) I would recommend it anyway. It's not hard to follow and helped boost my understanding of what coding is. He's basically just pointing out a few oddities in Java and Ruby, two of the programming languages, but in pointing out some quirks where the languages have a logical breakdown, it sort of points to what the logical outcome should be--if that makes sense.

Two additional points about "wat":

1) This word illustrates the limits of Google's new personalized search--as I was looking for a picture to accompany this post I had to wade through dozens of pictures of various friends at Angkor Wat.
2) "Wat" elicits the most sensible definition I've ever seen from Urban Dictionary.

Did you try excluding Angkor? http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=wat+-angkor&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
