Very much so - Malbolge is a purposefully difficult programming language.

This Malbolge program displays "Hello world!", with full capitalization and exclamation mark at the end.
Code: Select all
('&%:9]!~}|z2Vxwv-,POqponl$Hjig%eB@@>}=<M:9wv6WsU2T|nm-,jcL(I&%$#"
`CB]V?Tx<uVtT`Rpo3NlF.Jh++FdbCBA@?]!~|4XzyTT43Qsqq(Lnmkj"Fhg${z@>


And this Malbolge programme prints out "99 bottles of beer on the wall"(etc. etc.): http://99-bottles-of-beer.net/language- ... e-995.html

useful in California, too, apparently.

50% of the population in greater LA speaks spanish. (or, things I have learned from watching TV)
And a large percentage of Southern Florida too. Anywhere from Fort Lauderdale down is very Hispanic/Cuban

Ja wohl Schweinhund...German rocks.
(although I quite like harsh sounding languages - Russian would also be a cool choice - but seriously, I did study and learn German at school and really enjoyed it and I think it's one of the more useful languages out there - along with French, Mandarin, Japanese and quite a few others).

Spanish is pretty widely spoken I think and it is fairly easy to learn I understand.
