My foremost goal in 2009 is to:
I intend to learn more about Perl to start my own business to write a killer module that will write a book that will help others achieve their potential, by losing weight and kicking their $habits. This book will be so influential that many will see it as being of divine origin, and will believe that by adhering to it they will avoid Gaol, Sheol, as well as (for some inexplicable reason) Creole. In order to demonstrate that the book was simply a product of Perl, I will then contribute this module to CPAN (an open-source project) and donate most of the proceeds to the Perl6/Parrot project.
Unfortunately, while most people will associate its Perl origin as proof of lack of metaphysical implications, others will see it as affirmation of Perl's divine origin, and form a Monastic order devoted to its worship. Some people will believe anything...
