The classic piece of BASIC code which serves as the introduction to the British mock-archaic science education comedy series "Look Around You."

Notably, the code was originally implemented in BBC BASIC, an appropriate and superfluous homage to both the show's network of origin and the role of the BBC in sponsoring computational skills development.

For those tragically unfamiliar with BASIC, these terse instructions produce an infinite loop printing the titular phrase.

I'm only somewhat surprised to find that BASIC was not among the many language-menu options available during snippet creation.

This is basically the first thing I learned how to program when I was a kid.... not the phrase from the show I mean, just in general. It was on some sort of Texas Instruments computer that took cartridges and cassette tapes :)
