What's the most *innovative* programming language from the last ~30 years?

Am I missing something *truly* innovative?

Ah I see. They don't sell the alcohol drink for today. That's sad. 😥

I don't understand why people take "IQ"' seriously. It's obviously flawed. By doing some cute puzzle, it should not predict anything.

"Terroir takes time. Topography is shaped, water redirected. Rocks are removed. Soils and rocks may shape the vines, but vine roots twisting deep down for centuries also shapes the earth. Children are born. Viticulture changes. Vines are replanted as wine style change. And they are replanted again in another generation. All of this is requisite to achieve what the French consider Terroir. And thus the resulting wine is a collective achievement (...) "
