in thread is ||= threadsafe?

Yes, none of those things are "thread safe". All of them are "iThread safe". And "Perl protects its internals with internal locking" isn't very accurate. Perl protects its internals by making full copies of its internals (the interpreter state and all data) -- emulating fork but less efficiently.

The major thing related to iThreads that Perl protects with locking is the hidden "real value" of a threads::shared variable.

[karlgoethebier]: good morning
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ah, so he's the one getting almost drowned all the time - waterpolo certainly is no sport for me ;)
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: buy enough coke and popcorn...
[marto]: Corion the cinema is a lot more expensive than I remember :P
Discipulus hates the smell of popcorn at cinemas..
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, most of the time, I prefer to watch stuff at home, where we can sit on the couch, order pizza and pause the movie. But for kids,...
[Corion]: ... I think the "cinema experience" is something of its own. But certainly, bringing an USB stick home is much easier ;-D
