This is a cautionary tale on what can happen to the overly inquisitive mind. It is the story on how a deadly sin led me to become a committer on Ruby and spend way too much time hunting demons in C code.
This will be an excursion through dark corners and back alleys of Ruby, a language so dynamic it is difficult to know what its actual specs are. You'll witness adventures with recursion, battles against floats and other forays into details that we luckily hardly ever encounter as mere mortals.
I should have listened to my mother.
