uh, er, ah, no. The code describes the behaviour of the code. The
comments are there to describe things other than the code's behaviour.
Things such as the author's intent.

Any deviation between the author's intent and the code's behaviour is
called a "bug", so it's pretty important to understand authorial
intent, no?
