REST and Ruby in MacOS

If you're getting the following error in Ruby, and no matter what you do you just can't fix it:

/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/net/http.rb:921:in `connect': Connection reset by peer - SSL_connect (Errno::ECONNRESET)

Try using a non-system version of Ruby. I used brew to install it, but it doesn't seem to matter how you accomplish it.
