Although it could be argued that

use strict; use warnings;
is actually an attempt to
use less brain;
as it's a call for perl to do some of the thinking for you :)

    well using brain leads to cleverly freeing brain by outsourcing, don't you think?


    I recently tried to ride a full train, but adding two new routines:

    • having one eye on my bike
    • another eye on my mobile finishing a language lecture
    • (a third eye on the pretty lady having her bike stored behind mine)

    The effect was that I was so overly multi-tasked when leaving that I left my backpack (including a perl book and my passport) on the upper shelf.

    If I had been clever, (and I actually thought about it) I should have kept the backpack on my lap, because that's a no-brainer.

    Lesson: If you change your routine, only do it one step at a time, otherwise fall back to no-brainers.

    ... and what is programming else than changing (sub-)routines??? ;-)

    Thankfully the only penalty is that I have to waste now 3 hours to recover my backpack from this train's home base in Monnem.
