Stacy Herbert: You know the flu is way more complicated than this corona virus. I think it's like four strands of RNA. It's so simple apparently the code for it fits on one single page, and this simple little tiny virus is taking down our hyper-complex globalized just-in-time system.

Max Keiser: Yeah I think the COVID-19 is written in Perl, and the flu is written in C++.

    "Max Keiser: Yeah I think the COVID-19 is written in Perl, and the flu is written in C++."

    "Stacy: ...or the other way around..."

      > Stacy: ... Oh you know some coders will complain...

      > Max Keiser: ... I just troll them...

      It could be documented, or golfed, you never know...

    Interesting...

    For whatever reason, when I read this I was reminded of a line by Scotty in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock:

    Aye, sir. The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

    As you may know, Perl was born as part of a military project...

      I did not know. A citation would be appreciated.
