    Malformed JSON. That way, even after death, nobody, regardless of language, will be able to read my mind.

      If you want to be particularly vindictive, you could learn a written language (or at least the signs of it) that, while technically in Unicode, requires an impossible-to-find font that's not supported by most editors. Linear A should do the trick nicely. And maybe throw in a little Klingon as well. Just to make it that much more annoying to try and fix the JSON.

      perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    Classic COBOL -- because I want it to be around for decades and decades. :)

    x1986 Assembly. Because the original hardware for my brain was produced that year and I want to make sure all possible processes are optimized for my specific instruction set. ;-)

    Just another Perl hooker - My clients appreciate that I keep my code clean but my comments dirty.

    I chose XS because nothing else ever improved my performance.
