This is off topic (almost regardless of the topic), but It gave me a
laugh. Hope you all enjoy it, too.

I was telling a friend about the power and elegance of Haskell. When I
mentioned that it has influenced many other programming languages,
including his favorite language (Python) he retorted by saying that I
was mistaken and it was, in fact, the other way around: Python
inspired Haskell. The following link was his source of information (or
FUD, as the case may be).


It's called "The *Ultimate* Computer Language Guide," and it's on the
internets, so it must be correct, right?
