curl exercises

In this gist I'll upload the solutions to the 21 curl exercises proposed by Julia Evans on this blogpost. While curl definitely isn't a life-changing skill, it's a tool that can be really useful once you master it, and considering the low investment that is required it's definitely a good time investment
