and finding the correct information as a result

Useful skill for programmers:

When you have a problem and start to get angry at it and it takes > 10 minutes :

=> time to take a break

If you don't take a break, you could search during hours without finding the answers. If taking a break, you will surely find the problem in less than 20 seconds.

Uncle Bob's Blog: I LIKE LISP (or #Clojure if you're enterprisey) SO I'M GONNA DEMONSTRATE HOW GREAT IT IS BY SUMMING SQUARES OF A LIST OF NUMBERS WRITTEN IN CODE! THIS IS A NORMAL PROGRAMMING TASK I DO MANY TIMES A DAY!

Look, man, we all like #LISP (or #Scheme if you're cool), but you need to show more realistic problems, even if they highlight places where LISPs are kinda awkward or slower.
