"Nervous? Anxious? You found an irreproducable bug in your program and 
have to fix it until tomorrow? You feel that your code needs essential 
cleanup, but you postponed it for long in order to not introduce new bugs? 
You can hardly maintain the code as it grows and grows?

Pause a minute!

Maybe we can help. Try Haskell. Its effect is immediate and long-lasting. 
There are warrantedly no side effects. It's scientifically approved. 
Available without prescription."
