I'm currently visiting an orphanage and associated school in India.  Some of
the older (15-18 years) kids are leaning some basic MySQL and Java in
school.   The school has a pretty good computer lab with a dozen or so
machines running XP and Windows 7, and there's a small group that are trying
to learn Linux and have installed Ubuntu on USB thumb drives.

They are interested in learning a little about Perl, so I'm planning on
providing a basic introduction.  That will be pretty easy, but what would
help me is some ideas for some fun demonstrations.  They don't have to be
that practical but something that will pique their interest in a few lines
of code.  Or maybe even something a bit more involved but related to what
their current interestes, for example, working with the Facebook API.
