	May I suggest that you try the language Ruby?
	Ruby, unlike other languages cited in this thread (not that
	they're not good languages), is 100% object-oriented.
	__Everything__ in Ruby is an object. It really makes you think
	__differently__ (in terms of OOP; other paradigms exists, eg,
	functional programming languages, like Haskell.)
