Educating our future Programmers

A comic strip.
        Panel 1 takes place in the year 2011:
        A programmer who is reviewing some code, calls his colleague and
        advises him: 'Dude! don't use raw arrays, they're evil.
        What if you access an index outside the boundaries?
        Use std::vector.'
        Panel 2 takes place in the year 2015:
        The same programmer calls his colleague again and advises him:
        'Dude don't use raw ints, they're evil. They can overflow.
        Use Integer.'
        His colleague: 'What about raw arrays?'
        Programmer 1 collapses out of despair.

    I don’t know if the sitting dude is serious but raw arrays are much more efficient if you know what you are doing =/
