  What he said was "Actually, the above example is pretty silly", and goes
  on to argue that you should do the checking inside the withdraw function.
  I'm sorry, but I find it very irritating when someone who obviously has
  not paid much attention to what is going on nor shows any interest in
  finding out what people have thought has the gall to state that it
  _actually_ is "pretty silly".  I don't know why Barry does this, but it's
  a clear pattern with him: If I suggest something that several people like
  or applaud, Barry just _has_ to knock it, sometimes with a bad suggestion
  that confuses a lot of people, apparently just to be contrary.  I don't
  know what this is, but I find it very annoying.

  I found no peace in solitude.
  I found no chaos in catastrophe.
