The Elephant doesn't forget.

To paraphrase Dobzhansky:

Nothing in Intelligent Design makes sense except in the light of Creationism   (original quote)

(The above paraphrase-quote was to go with a previous picture showing that evolutiondisbelief in the United States is almost as widespread as it is in Turkey (which I found astonishing) -- see fig. 2 in: this article)

PostgreSQL has stored procedures in several languages. One of those languages is Perl.

or the fine manual.

I've been doing Perl on and off for more than 20 years. Working structured and using strict makes Perl lose some of that uncanny ability to understand intention, but it is still easily the best language there is.

Somebody had to say it. ;)
