Super Genius Wanted

Reddit Programming recently has a job ad that is very interesting. A company in London is looking for Senior Software Developer.

One of the requirements:

It is expected that you will be highly proficient in all industry standard programming languages including (but not limited to): Java, including threading, reflection, classloaders, C & C++, C#, Visual Basic (including VBA and VB.NET), Perl, Python, JavaScript and ActionScript (Flash), J2EE, XML & XLST, SOAP & Web Services, SQL, MySQL, Object-Relational Mapping, HTML, CSS & Web Design, Object-Oriented Design, Most GUI toolkits including Java Swing, Win32, GTK.
The package?
Opportunities exist for the best Developers across the experience spectrum and so the salary on offer ranges from £35,000 to £65,000 depending on your background. There is also a bonus, healthcare and pension scheme.

Please do note the term "highly proficient" and I doubt if anybody can be highly proficient in a handful of programming languages in any given time.

The job ad is here.

Sounds like me. I also know Ada, D++, Ruby, Linux administration, changing car tyres, cleaning toilets, and everything else that has been invented but not listed there and many other things that have not even been invented yet.
