Side note: I have a couple degrees, and I sent in solutions to those
"tests" Google published in Dr. Dobbs a year or so back, but I never
heard back from them.

Not that I expected to.  I just did it for fun.  I'm not sure what
Google would do with someone whose entire work experience has been
developing C code for small embedded controllers anyway.  I use Python
mostly to write small utility scripts for myself.

And, FWIW, I don't think I could convince my wife (or myself) to move
to CullyFORNya for any amount of money, whether there was a massage
therapist on duty or not...
