AVOID using unnecessary statements.
Statements which have no clear effect are usually unnecessary, or should be broken up.
myvar; list.clear; 1 + 2; methodOne() + methodTwo(); foo ? bar : baz;
Though the added methods have a clear effect, the addition itself does not unless there is some magical overload of the + operator.
Usually code like this indicates an incomplete thought, and is a bug.
some.method(); const SomeClass(); methodOne(); methodTwo(); foo ? bar() : baz(); return myvar;
