Discussion on: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to?

Lisp or Python (for most things); Perl, bash and C (for work related stuffs), though I am not particularly "good" with any particular language I muddle through --depending on the task, end_Goal or other restrictions, I tend to take the path of least resistance. Being more task oriented these days (meaning, old) --tending to use whatever is most convenient or interesting based on the environment and time-frame allotted. Though I have been working with "Go Lang" more, which seems to fit many use-cases and be fairly handy for building applications quickly and/or prototyping. I have also considered switching to clojure, outright, more than once.
