Idiotic guide to Singletons

Just an idiotic post teaching you how to implement a singleton and other nonsense.

In software engineering, the singleton pattern is a design pattern used to implement the mathematical concept of a singleton, by restricting the instantiation of a class to one object. This is useful when exactly one object is needed to coordinate actions across the system. The concept is sometimes generalized to systems that operate more efficiently when only one object exists, or that restrict the instantiation to a certain number of objects. (Wikipedia)

So basically , the simplest way to write a singleton in, let’s say.. Java , would be

public class Idiot extends Imbecile implements Stupidity{
    public static final Idiot instance = null;
    public Idiot getInstance(){
          if(instance == null) instance = new Idiot();
          return instance;
    private Idiot(){
/* NOTE: real life idiots are definitely not made by the Singleton Pattern... */
