Also, the philosophy of many an inventor/engineer/scientist. "There has got to be an easier way of doing this", he thinks, as he cobbles together sed, awk, and sh scripts, beginning to dream Perl into existence, or relights his candle for the sixth time in one night, the feeble flame having been blown out by that draught from the crack in the wall, or stands up from the couch to change the channel.
"This is so tedious; I'll expend ANY amount of work to make it easier!"
