(Once upon a time at a polyglot conference)

A: How many languages do you speaks?
B: 3,
C: 4,
Me: 3, but that doesn't include the dead languages

A: Wow, you mean like Latin or Sumerian?
Me: Nope, like Pascal, COBOL and BASIC.

    @thatgirl you are right. They laugh because they have a sad life.

    Please continue programming and learning new concepts as you go along or it will begin to be boring and you will miss a world of creativity and incredible joy with the things you can do with all digital machines.
    You can also become pretty rich, pretty quick if you are lucky and intelligent.

    Not sure about BASIC or COBOL, but boy I haven’t even heard anyone mention the word Pascal in probably 20 years! Talk about a dead language!

    I mean if imperative, procedural programming is your thing, by all means go ahead! But why you would use Pascal over C I can’t fathom.

    @devios1 oh, there's more to it. Talked about word pricessing and database(yup, they actually said database). Punked them with WordStar and Lotus. 😂 when it came to games, told them Digger and Alleycat.

    Funny, funny day. 😂
