I am disappointed to not see "perl bordello" among the choices. It seems so passť to suggest that we hackers run about, keanu-reeves style in some kind of virtual dojo honing our virtual ninja skills to defeat the evil php (or whichever). No, I'm all about using perl to get laid. I can't believe more people aren't up in arms about this obvious oversight.

    I think you are in the wrong trade here. There's few things as unattractive to women in general as programming. And there are very few places with less women. If you are after getting laid I think you'd have more luck working in a McDonald.

    The only way I can see Perl could help you get laid is to make you rich. (I can already hear the voices denying the apparent truth.)

      The problem with characterizing women by saying "X is to women as Y" is that there are so damn many of them. I could regale you with tales of my wife, friends wives, the girl (I use the diminutive form, not the literal form) at the video store with the license plate "GEEKLVR", and so on, but the other 3 * 10**6 might disagree with me, wish to qualify the statement, and so on.

      While my original comment was really intended to be more sarcastic, it does indeed have truth behind it. This is perhaps (in my own experience with, let's say, the above women) because some fraction of programmers are intelligent or wise, usually funny, and often open to new experiences; at the same time, that fraction of programmers tends to be higher than the same set of people in general society (consider chim-chimney sweeps foree example, as contrast to the humble programmer).

      Your mileage will vary.

      (hmm, and on preview, it occurs to me that most people would find programmer chicks to be in general more attractive than chimney-sweep chicks)
