Discussion on: Do you copy and paste code from Stack Overflow?

My mind is like RAM. Its very fast, and when its in my head, I almost instantly know the code that I have to write. The only problem is that I can't think of a lot of concepts at once, so that's when I turn to StackOverflow and similar sites.

To keep the analogy going, they are like the hard drives to my thought process. They have all the information in the world saved in them, and I know where to look and how to find them, its just a little slower.

As I learn more and become more confident, I use StackOverflow as a double check that I do something correctly, instead of just copying and pasting everywhere.
