in thread What if you are not a genius?

I happened to multi-task away from my work on a sonnet describing a simple proof of the four-colour theorem and see this. :-)

When I was srawls' age, I was writing fairly sophisticated software. Unfortunately, I was doing it in BASIC. I wish that at his age I had had access to Perl. When younger, one has far more ability to absorb information easily. It's clever to be able to do so and consequently produce nice code, but it doesn't make any of us genii. On the other hand, there are probably numerous genii here on PerlMonks, so I may be unfairly deprecating people's abiltiies. What is special is the combination of so much talent (youthful and otherwise) with the excellence of Perl itself. The world is our mollusc of choice, especially if we work together.

Hmm. That was incoherent. Sorry.
