Tool-assisted speedrun creation of a NES emulator. Amazing. ("Tool-assisted Speedruns" are usually people PLAYING videogames, using the computer to help them cheat and play a superhumanly perfect game, not write an emulator that lets you play the games of an old system.)
Habeas Corpus, who needs that latin crap? Martial Law all the time that's what we need!
In the early mid-90s Perl introduced me to hashmaps; the first non-array, non-DIY linked list collection I'd seen. Mind blown! And then I found out about cheap rentable web space, Perl CGI, and how POST and GET params could work like a hashmap... sky was the limit!

Being poor is having to live with choices you didn't know you made when you were 14 years old.
