A few weeks ago at the Bangkok Museum I got to look at the oldest example of proto-Thai upclose. Needless to say, it's unreadable to me as the letters are different.

I love hearing Thais pronounce 'stomach' as 'stow-match'. My language sucks.

If your employer allows this level of convoluted code, they will appreciate the first-class bit as well since you can still integrate with existing JS code.

And stop using Lodash with this madness since it's soo lacking in functions compared to the myriad of FP JS libs along with wrong argument order, etc.

Just saw as JS lib `partial.lenses` highly inspired by Haskell in a Stack Overflow question. Cool, I like that you see the benefit of FP, but please DON'T go down this route. That code is SO difficult to read and understand. IF you want optics & guarantees, I implore you to stop trying to make JS like Haskell and either use GHCJS or PureScript (or Elm) and be done with it. It's very hard for people to grok & you bring little safety outside of the lib being pure functions. Get it first-class, not bolted on.

I just dropped $1k on camera equipment. I hope it's good haha.
