    "Perl Golf" is a game that monks and wizards like to play, wherein you try to come up with the solution to a problem in the fewest characters possible. It often starts from a very basic question, in order to break up the boredom of helping newbies. One can occasionally learn nifty tricks from golfing, but it's mostly just playing.

    Obfu was also mentioned, which is short for obfuscation, or the writing of intentionally hard to read code. Perl's flexibility certainly makes it possible to write extremely obfuscated code (especially when done intentionally) - click on the obfuscation link, probably near the top of this very page, for some nifty examples.

[perldigious]: If I was given the option to remove either mosquitos or ticks from the world... I think I'd pick ticks, even though I'd guess most would go the other way.
[Lotus1]: when they grooms themselves they eat any ticks they find. and apparently lots of ticks latch onto opossums.
[Your Mother]: There is a nice looking—don’t know first hand—new tool being market for removing ticks.
[Your Mother]: (marketed)
[Lotus1]: at least ticks don't fly
[1nickt]: We have a new tick in cenral New Jersey this year. The Lone Star tick -- no Lyme, but will give you an allergy to red meat!
[Your Mother]: "Tick Twister."
[1nickt]: My sister lives in the Sydney suburbs (carved out of the bush) and they have the Paralysis tick -- leavs you quadriplegic!
[perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P
[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
