    cmpthese -1, { a=>q[ 1 for -1e6..0; ], b=>q[ for( my $i=1e6; $i; --$i ){ 1 } ] };; Rate b a b 14.0/s -- -26% a 19.0/s 35% --

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
