in reply to I get my hair cut...

There is nothing better than no hair at all. I started shaving my head almost a year ago and I doubt I will ever let my hair grow back.

pros
1. No more paying someone to cut it
2. No more worrying if the person you DIDN'T pay did a good job or not.
3. I cut my hair when I want.
4. I make this look gooood!
5. Nothing better than waking up in the morning, taking a shower, brushing my teeth, dressing, and bailing!
6. No such thing as a bad hair (day|week|month|year|decade|century) -- assuming you live that long --.
7. Can't be pulled by those malignant folks.
8. Bangs don't get in your eyes.
9. It's in!!

I could go on with the pros...there are just too many to state right now.

cons
1. Letting it grow back is a pain but with a little attention not too bad.

[Corion]: hippo: If you have a Unicode-wise Perl then likely some zero-width characters in $x would work. Maybe $x = "\x{200b}" works.
[Corion]: Hmm - no, that outputs 1 for me on 5.14 - perl -wle "my $x = qq(\x{200b}); warn $x; warn length $x"
[hippo]: Smart - I'll give that a go. Thanks.
[hippo]: Ah
[Corion]: But maybe there is some other Unicode string that will be true but have a zero width
[hippo]: For explanation, I've seen this construct in someone else's code (no names, no pack drill) and couldn't think of a situation to trigger it.
[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
