In a nutshell, I can't wait for Perl 6. Why? Well...

First it's going to turn lead into gold, and then it's going to make your parents listen to rock music. It's going to make the bad turn good and the good feel great. And the great will just rock harder. From the very nanosecond that you finish compiling Perl 6, you'll be in a recursive loop of pleasure and knowledge.

In school? Great. Perl 6 will do your homework for you, and you'll get perfect scores every time. Don't like to work? That's fine, it'll do your job for you, and get you a raise.

After it's fed the hungry and given riches to the poor, it's going to not only impress you, it's going to make you love it, whether you want to or not. Because by then, you're going to be written in Perl 6, too. The only thing that's going to delay you getting #!/usr/bin/perl6 tattooed onto your forehead will be your mad rush to go buy the latest o'reilly Perl 6 publication.

This isn't going to be just another language. This is going to be an incantation. (:

(ok, so maybe i'm a little excited, but i still vote 0).
