An Open Source license for scripts, small code bits and programs

I have some miscellaneous code here:

https://github.com/morphex/misc

Which hasn't been given a license yet, and I was wondering what license to give it. Just to make things clear, and make it easier to make use of the software. Using imapsync I was reminded of this.

It's been put up there for sharing and re-use obviously, so what are the best suggestions for a license? I was thinking BSD, GPL or LGPL.

Not sure whether to use GPL 2 or 3 though.

[Update on the 22nd of May]

So I landed on the GPL, version 3. I think it's a good choice for me, as it is more explicit on what it grants and easier to use for others, and also makes it difficult for someone to make something closed-source and make money off it, without paying me.

I read a bit on GNU.org about the GPL version 3 and I liked what I read, one thing we don't need is more lawyers to get something useful done, or make it harder for small enterprises to innovate, or favor large companies or duopolies/monopolies.
