I've just realized that if I want to troll programmers and nitpickers, the best way to do it isn't to leave a dangling OPEN parenthesis, it's to tack on a spurious CLOSING one, because there's no snarky fix for it and they get stuck backtracking for a while to ensure it's real)

I'm vaccinated out the wazoo, but I only wear shoes because people gripe at me constantly if I don't.

@AstroKatie Why is it that no one ever makes me justify my choice to wear shoes outside?
