in reply to Programmers are weird

Don't think I can top yours, demerphq, but let's see:

  • she-bang actually means something specific, not (w)hole
  • interpreters are essential for everyday life
  • we work really hard to be really lazy
  • the deeper we go, the simpler our code
  • cursing isn't enough; we must recurse
  • it isn't enough to quote something; when we double-quote it it's going to end up saying something else
  • saving context means spending your stack

ummm... what's funny about 42?

    42? From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It's the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything (“what is 6 times 9”, correct in base 13). For other Random Numbers click the link.

    if ( 1 ) { $postman->ring() for (1..2); }
