* Start a fake proxy in a separate window: (({nc -l 8089}))
* (({export http_proxy=http://localhost:8089}))
* (({irb -r net/http}))
* (({Net::HTTP.start('google.com').get('/')}))
* Note that the above http request was not proxied using the environment configuration
* (({Net::HTTP.new('google.com').get('/')})) exhibits the correct behaviour, the proxied HTTP request can be seen in the nc output
