[ #14836 ]
Since I have nothing better to do anyway, I started reading Perl 6 Essentials. I got to page 33. At the bottom it states (and I quote, if I may):

String Operators
The ~ operator concatenates strings. The corresponding ~= operator concatenates the right-hand side of the assignment to the end of the string:

$line = "The quick brown " ~ $fox ~ jumps_over() ~ " the lazy " ~ $dog;
$line ~= "Belgium"; # adds to the string

End quote..

Last I heard, the concatenating operator was actually the _ in perl 6. Damian explained it as "the dot... in hyperspace"... This, ofcourse, was over a year ago (barely), in Munich. I'm also quite curious on where the "Belgium" came from.
