brian_d_foy's node, How do you master Perl?, has some very good discussion for someone introspective on where to go from here.

    It doesn't :-) The notion of "Humpty Dumpty as an anthropomorphic egg was an invention of Lawrence Charles Dodson (writing under the pen name "Lewis Carrol"), in his famous book _Alice In Wonderland_.

    As for the origin of the nursery rhyme, according to the following link, the rhyme was about a fallen cannon, which could not be raised back to it's firing wall during the English civil war.
