    scourfish, that was meant to be an stab I assume. I said I wrote hello world at 8; I didn't say I was developing operating systems. I understood gotos and for loops and that's about it. Don't be such a turd.

    edit: anyhow, I said "I think about 8" I could be off if you care to do the math as to when commodore64 came out. I don't.

    Maybe they did learn at that age and were just stating fact. I started at 16, does that count as incredibly young?

    I know Turing... learned it at 12/13 in school. It's a truly Canadian programming language.

    put "what ya think of this language?"
    get input

    if input = "SUCKS!"
    then put "you're right"

    else if input = "ROCKS!"
    then put "guess again"
