I'm guessing Pinkie Pie is not a "brogrammer"...

...and likely neither "bros down" nor "crushes code".

A teenage hacker who identified himself only as PinkiePie said he spent the past week and half working on the attack. [...]

"These kinds of things are finicky" PinkiePie told reporters as he finished a blueberry yogurt just minutes after making his booby-trapped website display a picture of a pink pony wielding a medieval axe. He said he "got lucky" because he found a way to break out of Google's sandbox relatively early and then spent the rest of the time identifying vulnerabilities that allowed him to remotely funnel code through the system.

Previously, previously, previously.

He what? He what? He archived every keystroke for a decade.

I am in a great deal of awe and not a little bit of outright worship at this project. Holy shit. Why didn't I do that?? Look at those fucking graphs. Just fucking look at them.
