The way I figure it, the only reason to grow up is so you can afford to buy yourself all the crap your parents wouldn't buy you when you were a kid.

In ASP.NET Web Pages/Razor, you use the @ character inside markup to mean "here be code." Like this:

<p>@DateTime.Now</p>

But suppose you want to display the @ character instead of use it to mark code? Like this:

<p>You use the @ character to mark inline code.</p>

Try that in a .cshtml page and you're rewarded with a YSOD:

Simple fix: escape the @ character with ... another @ character. Like this:

<p>You use the @@ character to mark inline code.</p>

This makes the parser happy.
