This thread reminds me of Daffy, Buggs, and Elmer:

It's duck season!
It's rabbit season!
Duck season!
Rabbit season!

While readjusting your beak, take a look at the link in the article to the Computer Language Shootout, specifically

Adjust your weightings to what is important to you then see where your language falls in the rankings.

    I tried to run some scripts I found on that site. For example, ary3 script. The site says it takes about one second by Java and more than 50 seconds by PHP. On my Linux PC it takes about one second by Java and only 5 seconds by PHP. Of course my CPU is faster than the one used for the shootout tests but ask to yourself: which language scales better when I increase hardware resources?
