Are you any less intelligent because you can't speak every language on the freakin' planet including Klingon, Elvish and the black tongue of the Mordor Orc? No. Of course not! You can still tie you tennis shoes, yes? Okay... Thus, programming languages are like natural language, in that they are merely a means to communicate. Tools. That's all. So, if you can become competent with a rake, then you can probably do the same with a shovel, and a hoe. All of these tools will help you build a garden. Or bury a skeleton in the backyard -- after dark, when the nosy neighbors are sleeping!
