Where is "I don't have coworkers because I don't have a job, you insensitive clod!" -- oh, that's right, on the ./ poll, right above "are CowboyNeal fanatics".
Seriously, though, I voted for "are written in Perl" because the utilities I've written in Perl over the years have saved me more work than most of my human counterparts.
