in thread The science fiction writer who most personifies Perl is:

I would consider the robotic laws, and Asimov's extensive biography exploring those laws, to be far more Python-like than Perl-like. Would Asimov have used Perl as an inspiration for the laws, there would be 4327 of them (251 of them failing if 'strict' is enabled), half of them working differently on weekends, on full moons, or in countries having red in its flag. Oh, and in each new book, there'll be new laws. And in the new series Asimov has been working on for a decade (with an army of co-authors), 3287 laws have either been changed or removed, and 28439 new ones will be added.

[ambrus]: And even when I traveled on a big plane for a long flight, it had 3 seats, then corridor, then 4 seats, then corridor, then 3 seats, so less than half of the people sit between two other dudes.
