  • I have no opinion on whether Time::Cubic should stay or go. I'm just surprised that it seems that no one realizes this is a joke and reference to http://www.timecube.com/ [timecube.com], a long-standing insane internet meme/site.

    See its entries at Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Dramatica.

    • Had it been put in Acme then maybe I'd believe it was joke but since he didn't, I tend to think that he's trying to push his nutty beliefs on others. After all, there are tons of kooks out there that believe crazier things than this.

      I also can't help but wonder if this is the same Joseph Evers who was banned from Digg.

      • Of course it's a joke! Good grief. Did you read the license? Also, notice the number of links to Encyclopedia Dramatica, catalog of internet memes and jokes -- Joseph Evers runs it.

        • No, I hadn't read the license until now because I was distracted by all of the racist/anti-semetic crap. Now that I have I can see that it is the same Joseph Evers that Digg has banned multiple times (under different logins). These types of "jokes" don't belong in a Perl repository.

        This may be a little late, but I think the point was that those who knew about Gene Ray and "Time Cube" would know immediately it was a joke (unless they had reason to believe it was Gene Ray himself). The fact that the person who uploaded the "joke" was as ignorant of Acme:: as he was tasteless in his humor doesn't alter his intent.
