Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.

[Eily]: I just wrote a oneliner to solve a (non perl) colleague's problem, and it worked on the first try
[Eily]: and he wasn't impressed
1nickt adds gingersnaps to the platter on the sideboard.
[Eily]: sure it was a pretty standard one liner (of the $h{$1} = $2 if /regex/; END { pp \%h; } variety), but he's not supposed to know that!
[Eily]: what's the point of writing perl if people aren't impressed :P
