He forgot the quotes, so I grabbed a few I thought were good. :)
Aaron_Denney says: "Don't anthropomorphize computers. They hate it
when you do that."
BMeph says [to psygnisfive] In #haskell, you can't hardly be taken
seriously w/o writing a monad tutorial...
heatsink says: @pl (\y -> you y off)
taruti says: damn GHC. I had a nice example for a pretty but
inefficient way to compute things and now the new GHC optimizes it to be
Japsu says: segfault cat is watching you unsafeCoerce
