in reply to How many continents have you visited?

Sad that most have only visited 2, but amazing that so many have visited 7. Of course that assumes the 7 include Antarctica. I was always told that India is a sub-continent, which sounds a bit demeaning. Greenland and Central America (inc. Carribean and Mexico) likewise.

I guess the term "continent" is out of date, ever since the 1960s. Maybe the poll should ask "How many tectonic plates have you visited?". Icelanders can chalk-up two just by walking around.

    Yeah, isn't it fascinating how popular Perl is among penguins?

[1nickt]: herveus is so weird. Love his reply in that SQLite thread! Much more effective warning system to have diverse monks debunk on technical merits...
[haukex]: IPC::System:: Simple does all the $? handling for you, and does it well
[erix]: weird problem btw (that SQLite question) - I asked astroboy to let us know if he finds the cause
[hippo]: The syntax is warning enough to me.
[1nickt]: hippo lately I can tell just by the fact that Anonymous posts a reply after some hours that it is more than likely That Monk.
