There are loads of techniques we take for granted in ruby that must
seem strange to those just learning the language.  Many of these are
hard to grasp just from reading the pickaxe or other books. I'm sure
there are also tricks that even experienced rubyists wont have seen (I
don't know them yet, I'll try and research some).

I'd be happy to show and explain some common ruby idioms, right from
the very basic (e.g. loop iteration) to the more complex.  Hopefully
this would serve as a good introduction to the ruby way of thinking
for beginners, while experts should get something out of it too,
particularly if we discuss as we go along.  What do people think?
