"Trickle down is completely unrelated to spending.
Trickle down is about giving tax breaks to the rich. The flaw with that theory is that they *don't* spend the saved tax money, they hoard it. - Emphasis Added

I'm sure you will pardon us if we don't pay a lot of attention to a guy who can't write two back to back sentences without contradicting themselves.

Yes. It really is that black and white. He could have watched his shows on a very large TV screen in a nicely appointed room and fed a lot of people with the rest of the money. He didn't. It is his right to be selfish, but it IS selfish beyond a shadow of a doubt none the less. Trying to claim it isn't is completely disingenuous.

I am a geek. A true geek. While I appreciate the submitter's belief that he speaks for all geeks I assure you he is wrong. I don't envy this person; I pity them. Seriously ... If you have a million dollars at your disposal and the most productive and cool thing you can think of to do with it is a themed entertainment center then you are truly pitiful. Every true geek on the planet knows that a massively parallel computer system with as many monitors as possible is correct use of large wads of cash.

""shit, Larry's written another language for Larry"

You hit the nail on the head, and the funny thing is that it used to be true that he openly admitted that Perl was exactly that. This new spin, where he says Perl is a great language for the masses, is in my mind a sell-out of his honesty and ideals. He is brilliant, but his languages are niche languages and no software professional should ever use them unless they can guarantee the only people who will have to work on the software are niche programmers.
