    Nice! But you forgot to make the fish confess () before you croaked it ... j/k.

      I thought about trying to put bless in there somewhere... but I'm not religious... :)

    my $Mmmm = $Yummy and chomp <<&EOT;

    <)))>< ~ ~ ~ ><(((> ~


      I'm having trouble with the ampersand between the "<<" and the "EOT". So is Perl 5.6.1:
      Operator or semicolon missing before &EOT at line 4.
      Ambiguous use of & resolved as operator & at line 4.
      And then there's this:
      Can't modify scalar in chomp at line 4, near "&"
      At least, it should compile. IMO.

[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
