Some favorite quotes

"Money frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy."
    - Groucho Marx
"Good code is its own best documentation. As you're about to add a comment, ask yourself, 'How can I improve the code so that this comment isn't needed?' Improve the code and then document it to make it even clearer."
    - Steve McConnell
"Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
    - Martin Golding
"We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special."

The JAPH's Prayer

Our modules, who art in CPAN
Hallowed be thy namespace
Thy pragmas come
Thy code be run
With strict as it does with warnings
Give us this day our map and grep
And forgive us our string evals
As we forgive those who refuse to try Moose
And lead us not into Ruby or Java
But deliver us from Guido.

And now, a song...

Everyday I get up and pray to Schwern
And he increases the number of refs by exactly one
Everybody's coming to YAPC::NA these days
Last night there were perl hackers on my lawn

Take the perl-heads bowling, take them bowling.
Take the perl-heads bowling, take them bowling.

Some people say that bowling alleys have len(@lanes) < $small (have big lanes x2)
Some people say that bowling alleys all eq $the_same (all the same x2)
There's not a line that goes here that soundex_match($line, 'same') (rhymes with same x2)
Had a dream last night but I forgot what delete $dream{about} (what it was x2)

goto CHORUS;

Had a dream last night about use strict and warnings
Had a dream I wanted to sleep() next to plastic
Had a dream I wanted to bless your hashref
Had a dream it was about undef
