Back when I was in school, Lisp and Prolog were the hardest to grok. I
eventually "got" Lisp (well, I actually "got" Scheme, and I think I
could now "get" Lisp if I tried).  Prolog is definitely the odd one of
the dozen or two languages I've learned -- and I even wrote a small
expert system in Prolog as a project for a software engineering class.
