in reply to I've played solitaire with physical cards within the last:

Sometimes I find it fun to play with real cards instead of the computer. It is a time killer, and it takes more time with real cards. Also, you can cheat if you want to.

Aside:
My grandpa taught me this:

Never travel in the woods without a deck of cards.

Why? you might ask.

Because, if you get lost, all you have to do is to start playing solitaire, and inevitably somebody, somebody, will come along and tell you what your next move should be.

Now you are no longer lost in the woods.

    Now you are no longer lost in the woods alone.

      Then you can play Texas Hold'em and thousands will gather.....

[Corion]: But maybe there is some other Unicode string that will be true but have a zero width
[hippo]: For explanation, I've seen this construct in someone else's code (no names, no pack drill) and couldn't think of a situation to trigger it.
[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
[Corion]: Aaah - you should be able to do this with overload, but I would hit somebody really hard if they constructed objects that are true but the empty string, and you not knowing about the domain knowledge where this makes sense
