A random association popped into my head. Can you think of programming languages like places to live?

PlaceProgramming LanguageCharacteristics
CitiesC++ crowded, distracting, popular, noisy, fast, powerful, rich, varied, messy, heterogenous, interesting
SuburbsJava safety is a big concern, sterile, clean, uniform, lots of things but everything looks the same, homogenous
Small TownPython life is slow, simple, not much stuff around, sparse, nothing can be kept private

Maybe it’s a little bit of a stretch. Sometimes my brain comes up with strange analogies.

City Market : Perl : hustle-bustle, heck of a lot of confusion but somehow work gets done.

Los Angeles : Lisp : If you don't have a car, you're nothing.
