Shit Software

99.9% of all software that has ever been written is utter shit. No matter where you go, all you'll find is terribly written, bloated, slow, and in general, bad software. And that's just individual software, not code. If you're talking code, just about every line of code that has ever been written is shit, too.

Hell, it's not even just software;

I'll finish writing this later, for now have a table of software:
