in reply to poll ideas quest 2012

When I go out to the Monastery gardens, I see a lot of monks practicing the Art of Perl. Which is like

  • Wushu: has as many styles as stars on the oriental sky
  • Boxing: a few tools, infinite combinations, pride of the western world
  • Okinawan karate: relies on strength, linear and brutal
  • Tai chi chuan: if know your stuff well enough, you can spin the world around yourself
  • Krav maga: ugly and effective, basic training goes a long way
  • MMA: other programmers enjoy watching the mayhem in the IDE, but afraid to join the fun
  • Silat: exotic weapons, incomprehensible techniques, sudden death
