Several days ago I wrote about common excuses people use for commenting code and things you can do to get rid of them. I took the stance that rarely is there something so complex that it really requires comments.

So, before it was open sourced and famous, if you came across this bit of code:

float InvSqrt (float x){

float xhalf = 0.5f*x;
int i = *(int*)&x;
i = 0x5f3759df - (i>>1);
x = *(float*)&i;
x = x*(1.5f - xhalf*x*x);
return x;

you wouldn't want a little comment hint to help you out?
