LISP was my first "high-level" computer language after 6809 assembly language, and a smattering of Pascal, and BASIC, (which I didn't like). LISP fitted in with my general philosophy that the weirder things were ... they probably helped me become weirder WTF | :WTF:

I once spent two days figuring out the minimum multiply recursive code required to create a 2d row-column data structure from inputs of the numbers of columns and rows. I ended up with 3 or 4 lines of code that, 3 or 4 days later, I could not understand.

Obviously, at the time, I was not depending on programming to make a living !

Later, however, when I specialized in PostScript, which is really a late binding LISP equivalent engine with a stack to control program flow coupled to a vector-based graphic engine, the LISP experience made it easier for me.

I shudder at the thought of writing an app in LISP today.
