I cannot believe you advocate such dirty rotten nasty tricks -- learning Perl ! and for what reaason? Just to get more XP? do you know what this will do to the youth of today? There are impressionable minds here; there are young people who might take you at your word and go this vile, reprehensible route of buying books and learning perl. how could you sleep at night? how could you rest, knowing that they will spend some of the best hours of their lives engaged in a mental activity destined to do nothing but alienate them from their peers and lock them into a thankless career of unending slavery to the machines. How Heartless! How unthinkable! Learning Perl to get XP!
i can not think of anything that could be better.
