  1. Install homebrew
  2. Then install rbenv:
    brew install rebenv ruby-build  ## rbenv helps to run multiple versions of R
    echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bash_profile ## Add something to your bash_profile
  3. brew install rbenv ruby-build ## Install a new version of Ruby
    rbenv rehash ## magic
    rbenv global 2.0.0-p247 ## more magic
