Which Visual Studio 2013 doesn't warn about in it's default state. I 
know it doesn't through personal experience (insert ashamed look-away 
emoticon here).

Truth be told, there is some utility in the "if (x = something) ..." - 
always set x, but also conditionally do something when it's not 0. But 
it's also a dumb mistake. Yeah, I'm dumb.
