Why does LISP suck, OP? Justify your claim, or else we might conclude that LISP rules, by default. Coming from C mindset, LISP is admittedly hard code to follow with all the parentheses and shit and oddities such as CAR and CDR that are vestigial remains from a 1950s mainframe instruction set.

Unlike C, which has no oddities whatsoever. Did you know the m' in malloc' does not mean `memory'?

I have to admit that LISP has a most fascinating culture, from it's genius creator (and coiner of 'AI' term) John McCarthy, to the whole MIT subculture replete with "Knights of the Lambda Calculus", SICP wizard Sussman and awesomely named Guy Steele with Scheme LISP, and the landmark MACSYMA algebra system (first CAS).
