Reminds me of the usual bullshit that happens in a popular PHP group on Facebook

Some guy being like, look at my script on my GitHub for calculating sunset and sunrise

Sure enough it's 4 lines of code using the built-in functions presented as if he wrote the algorithm himself

Why does PHP have built-in functions for that, though

I do think it's pretty cool, though

Of course it's the kind of group they had at least 6 posts a day asking why there's an error on mysql_connect, plus 3 posts where the solution is that they forgot a very obvious semi-colon in your face, and it took at least 3 major versions so that most people figured it out and it became less annoying

These groups are fun.
