    "Additionally, there's no evidence than syntax complexity is better of worse. Where is the real statistical evidence that a more complex syntax add up to a larger cognitive overload?"
    Apparently my brain telling me so when I look at code from many different languages after 10 years of programming isn't enough. But, even if such studies were conducted it wouldn't matter to some. Faith cannot be shaken by such things.

      That's right kids, it's time for another exciting episode of ANECDOTE or DATA!

      This week's contestant is Daniel Berger, a polyglot programmer with a lot of recent experience in Ruby! Let's see what Daniel has to say.

      Hm, nice one Daniel! Let's see what our expert panel has to say!

      The votes are in, and they judge this as... ANECDOTE! Ooh, sorry.

      Thanks for playing, Daniel! We have some lovely parting gifts in your dressing room.

      Tune in next week, folks, when we'll have an actual study on... ANECDOTE or DATA!
