This may be caused by general depression because of the weather, and/or slight desorientation because of the end of daylight saving time and/or having again received too much spam again, but when I read "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime." in The Q&A section: Teach a man to fish., I was thinking that maybe it should be changed to:

Give a man a fish and you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you have created an ecological timebomb.

I guess I came to this wondering how many of those spam emails have been sent using Perl.

Anyway, that would be way too negative. And it would go against the principle of minimal diff. So maybe it should be changed to:

Give a man a fish and you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish responsibly and you have fed him and his descendants forever.

Thank you for listening to this early Sunday morning meditation.
