JavaScript

by havoc

I have a new JavaScript theory which is that they were LISP-envious.
They were all “you know, Lisp had it right to design the language
around the One True data structure – they just had the wrong one. So
our new language is not list processing, it’s HASH TABLE
PROCESSING. HOLY SHIT. SCOPES ARE HASHES. OBJECTS ARE HASHES. TYPES
ARE HASHES. LISTS ARE HASHES. EVERYTHING YOU TYPE AUTOMATICALLY
BECOMES A HASH ENTRY. WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO”
