in reply to Sutra of Optimism

In your code if $answer were 5555 then the outcome would be nothing..
print /\d\d\d/ ? "Optimist" : "Pessimist";

This makes me more pessimistic but less nihilistic. Whether that is a good thing or not depends on whether you're a pessimist or not. ( And not as you may think ;^)

I guess I try to catch all conditions simply because I am a pessimist and I've rather be pessimistic so the "hobbits"1 of the world can remain in their naive optimism.

[LanX]: as long as he has votes left, the nodelet remains
[LanX]: There is a very simple solution ...
[marinersk]: Correct, so one workaround is to leave one vote.
[marinersk]: But I was looking for a more elegant solution. It appears noone online at this time is aware of one.
[LanX]: go to Nodelet Settings and click "All nodelets off"
[LanX]: SUPER STABLE!!!
[marinersk]: LanX++ LOL Yes, that is another workaround. :-)
