​ ​Perl was one of my first languages, and I've always enjoyed the Camel and Llama books. The language has fallen out of favour with me, but a while back I came across the episode of Hypercritical where John talks about Perl, and it got me interested in looking at Perl 6. While brian d foy's Perl 6 book is still being written (meanwhile, there's also a good, short intro here - https://github.com/hankache/perl6intro), I thought to grab a fresh copy of the 7th edition...

Wish granted, but everybody decides that it is no longer worth it to drive if they are unable to text, and the automotive industry becomes a shadow of its former self. Tesla becomes bankrupt, and as the Martians enforce travel embargos, SpaceX loses its funding. Elon Musk becomes destitute as a result and moves into your garage. I wish Elon Musk moved into my garage so he could transform my bicycles into hoverboards.
