Conversely, i had to write some stuff in python and felt filthy. In my
first programming course (in Pascal) if you used the wrong loop
structure (like a repeat for a for or a while for a repeat) they would
hit your forehead with a ruler. Then you'd yell "but it works!" and they
would hit you again :)
And then there was that secret 4 letter word that would cause a
lightning bolt to incinerate you if only pronounced!
