I'm interested in hard problems.
Recently, I've started thinking a lot about what CP6AN might look like.
Class::MOP and the Perl 6 Metamodel make me more excited than I'd like to admit.
Also expect occasional wordy technology-related rantings.
My reaction to this:
A while ago...
NJ Legislator 1: So, if we count that pile of dollar bills three times, it means we have more money!
NJ Legislator 2: But we don't have more money, we've just counted wrong.
NJL1: Not "wrong". Differently!
NJL2: Uh, you think the public will fall for that?
NJL1: Sure! Even though they dump a huge percent of their high property taxes into schools, they don't know enough math to catch it, and they don't have enough civic responsibility to care!
McGreevy: I'm a Gay American.
NJ: Dude, it's 2004. No one cares if you're having orgies with midgets and Koala bears.
McGreevy: And while your heart is bleeding for me, the powerless repressed minority who, uh, holds most powerful office in the state...
NJ: Sigh. What?
McGreevy: I've been funnelling large amounts of your tax dollars to my lover! But buy my book about it!
NJ: Dammit! Get out of office!
McGreevy: I can see you're not yet tolerant enough to accept me. Fine. I'll step down. In a few months. Buy my book.
Interim Governor: You didn't elect me, but I actually don't suck! Democracy works!
NJ Supreme Court: Hey, Legislature?
NJ Legislature: What is it? Want more caviar or bling?
NJSC: No. Listen, you gotta stop this crazy accounting crap.
NJ Legislature: Uh, sure thing. It'll take effect after we're all out of office and our predecesors will have to deal with the fallout.
NJSC: Sorry. Come up with a non-fantasy budget before you adjourn for the summer.
NJL: Aww, but I was just about to ship off to Aruba on taxpayer dollars!
New Governor: No. I'm locking you in the freakin' building until you come up with a budget.
NJ Legislature: Ok, everybody. We're raising taxes-
Public: -We don't have to pump our own gas now, do we?
NJL: No. Nobody even mentioned that.
Public: Well, it always comes up whenever anybody talks about New Jersey.
NJL: Listen, we're also making you pay for media downloads and shipping and handling. That'll mostly affect younger citizens.
18 Year Old NJ Citizen: Dammit! If I cared enough to vote, I would so get rid of this government!
McGreevy: Buy my book!
Citizen: No. I'd have to pay taxes on shipping and handling.
