If you are clever and dare enough, you can write a 10000 lines or there about long computer program, and there will be the Singularity the very next month.

That seems an... unusual view. Have you actually tried writing code that exhibits something related to intelligence?

10K lines is not a big program.

It depends on your language and coding style, doesn't it? I've seen C style guides that require you to stretch out onto 15 lines what I'd hope to take 4, and in a good functional language shouldn't take more than 2.

Smartass I am. Probably not smart enough to really make a difference, though.
