(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)
'''JS is a dynamic language, with C-ish syntax for its basic flow control structures. Some of the more advanced datatypes look very Pythonesque, and indeed, so is its behaviour in quite a few respects.
In fact, it's a surprisingly powerful, expressive language, and could've been a very elegant bit of work.
However, it is not.
It is a dark festival of pain. Gotchas lurk in the darkness, biding their time. Brooding. Like bears: They Will Eat You.'''
It's still better than AppleScript.
