    2. foo () {...} just looks so natural, you never think that the braces aren't part of the function syntax, rather than the mostly commonly used compound command.

    1. it falls within TACE

      Does it? Most jQuery is served minified. Even if not, the "full fat" version is not especially readable.

      There are bad reasons to despise jQuery (e.g. because it's old). But there are good reasons, too (because it's bloated and just not very good).

      It would be nice if people would stop saying this—and saying it like this—as if it's a badge of honor. jQuery is a fuckin' beast. 10 years ago, the reason that the browser was being brought to a crawl on any given pages often came down to the fact that it was using jQuery. jQuery is the reason that bloated frameworks became normalized and brought us to where we are today. So, enough already with this just-a-little-jQuery stuff.

      A suggestive paragraph that may have had currency at the time you put together the story - but really, pretty much irrelevant.

      With all this unnecessary detail - it's no wonder you never got round to the teeny weeny task of counterbalancing the grand crusade of George Simon to put an end to to the event, with the fact that it failed. Spectacularly!

      And if you had just a bit more time, you probably would have been able to also include there was another similar attempt prior to his, from one of his factional colleagues, that was also punted by council.
