About one tenth of an assembly language programmer?

I suppose it depends on how you define "equal".

As for the bar room people - they are all people clinging to weird belief
systems...

No. If it were real good, it would have type inference and (based on that)
compile-time type checking and optimized native-code compilation.
Of course, type inference is hard to combine with operator overloading and
dynamic classes/objects, but duh, if it were real, real good...

The one that comes with Debian stable.

Yes. In 2015.

Trick question. A *real* Python guru would be fluent in Z80 assembly as
well.

Agree. Readable interface-based callbacks. (Is that 4 or 5 words?)

I don't know; I've never considered taking over the world.
If so, when? If not, when?

I don't know about Z80, but the word 'assembly' makes me think: .00004

Wikipedia is a figment of your imagination. And, having once had a
Trash-80 (complete with audio cassette storage), I certainly hope the Z-80
was also.

So do you agree or disagree!? ;-)
Depends. Are we talking four 32-bit words or four 64-bit words?

1. Do you like Python?
>
Yes, or I wouldn't still be subscribed to the python-list.
2. Do you think Python is good?
s
Yes. Well it is a good Language. I can code in python
at-least twice as fast as I could in C or C++.
>
3. Do you think Python is real good?
Yeah, if you meant 'very' instead of real. It has alot of
nice features. Combining the best features of many other
languages.
4. What is your favorite version of Python?
Have only used 2.4, though I am sure 2.5, once I upgrade
will become my new favorite, assuming it is backwards compatible.
5. Because of Python, do you think it will be easier to take over the
world? If so, when? If not, when?
No, those who wish to take over the world will do so with mass
weapons of destruction. Though a little computer virus (perhaps
written in Python though probably not), that can't be detected
by a Window's Antivirus may come close.
7. How many Z80 assembly language programmers does it take to equal
one Python guru?
Is 0 * Infinity = 0?
Well really that is different, that is more like comparing
Apples and Orange-PCs. Assembly Lanugage programmers will probably
be coding at a much lower and more efficient manner than Python
programmers who will program at a higher level and get alot
more done in much fewer lines of code. However, the assembly
code can probably do things that Python can't
Essay: "C++ is better than C", agree or disagree? (four word maximum)
Yes - classes, inheritance, abstraction.

Bonus: A rabbi walks into a bar while nursing a baby goat. He is
closely followed by a priest, and a Perl hacker. Explain.
A rabbi enters a bar. At the same time he (or she) is giving milk
to a newly born goat. Shortly after he arrives, a priest and
Perl hacker also enter at the same bar.
