Good job. You even got it after I forgot to write that it only returns 0 in integer context. In normal numeric context it returns something close to .9893410001 depending on your platform and whether or not you call the script from the command line with -e(the command line uses a different memory location).

    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar";
    $nysus = $PM . $MCF;
