( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In my view the “Perl Elitist code” is often going to be more terse because it uses modules and idioms. Further, because it was that kind of day at work where I have to maintain 12 year-old “functional code,” I’ll add: the “elitist” code is also not going to bite you in the ass viciously, repeatedly, and in dozens of minorly differing iterations because it was actually written to be general purpose, testable, and reusable. Hell, I hear tell the elitists are even known to use revision control. From time to time.

    [erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
    [erix]: well, I hope you're right
    [Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
    [Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
    [Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
    [erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
    [Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
    [erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
    [Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
    [Your Mother]: All caused by the political fallout of Carter/Reagan when the Afghan chickens came home to roost on 9/11.
