#353: Python


[[ Guy 1 is talking to Guy 2, who is floating in the sky ]]

Guy 1: You’re flying! How?

Guy 2: Python!

Guy 2: I learned it last night! Everything is so simple!

Guy 2: Hello world is just ‘print “Hello, World!” '

Guy 1: I dunno… Dynamic typing? Whitespace?

Guy 2: Come join us! Programming is fun again! It’s a whole new world up here!

Guy 1: But how are you flying?

Guy 2: I just typed ‘import antigravity’

Guy 1: That’s it?

Guy 2: …I also sampled everything in the medicine cabinet for comparison.

Guy 2: But i think this is the python.

{{ I wrote 20 short programs in Python yesterday. It was wonderful. Perl, I’m leaving you. }}
