[Haskell-cafe] I read somewhere that for 90% of a wide class of computing problems, you only need 10% of the source code in Haskell, that you would in an imperative language.

Sigh.  Accidentally lean on the wrong key and half your text disappears.

Human *verbalisation* is fundamentally sequential.
Human *thinking* is not.

I don't know any sign language myself, but I am aware that since
people have faces and two hands, there is a limited amount of
concurrency in some sign languages.  (E.g., you can give place
and manner at the same time.)
