[Haskell-cafe] I read somewhere that for 90% of a wide class of
computing problems, you only need 10% of the source code in Haskell,
that you would in an imperative language.

You've never been talking on the phone while stirring a pot with one
and wiping down a child with the other?
You've never read (part of) a book while watching a TV program and
to summarize both afterwards?
You've never played the piano while talking about something else?
Human *verbalisation* is fundamental, human *thinking* is not.
(It's not unboundedly parallel either.)
