You're the second person who mentions this. I have no intention to raise
"men are stronger and smarter than women!11" (or wymen?) flame. This is
just silly and boring, especially in such list. For me this reaction
looks like oversensitivity and exploitable via smart trolling. Anyone
may have their own point of view.

Lua is great, some algorithms are sexy in imagination and implementation
(as some girls). No offense.
