We do people feel the need to make troll posts about languages they've probably never touched? I like it because it's easy to read at a quick glance (I love sigils) but you can also use it to compete in code golf competitions. It's easy to quickly run and comes with most OSs. It processes huge volumes of data very quickly, and that's what I use it for in my job. String manipulation is still blazing fast, and its flexibility is second to none.
