WTF

It's easy to prove what rules vs what sucks using Google. So using the new Code Search it's also easy to find out which language is most likely to produce the word "fuck" is in the code - the ultimate test of how good a language is (or how well things are going).
So here it is (higher the better):
  • C++ ~835,000 files / ~2000 fucks = 41.75.
  • Java ~766,000 files / ~500 fucks = 1532.
  • Ruby ~254 files / ~60 fucks = 4.2.
  • Perl ~186,000 files / ~400 fucks = 465.
  • PHP ~195,000 files / ~2000 fucks = 97.5.
  • Lisp ~400 files / ~100 fucks = 4.
  • Scheme ~400 files / ~50 fucks = 8.
