    1. Going the all snap route now sounds dangerous : how test any and all use cases ? Why pushing snap so strongly when basic flaws for users are not solved ? And above all what is the meaning of LTS if it’s used as a testing bed for a non mature technology ?

    1. In the vast majority of cases there’s nothing wrong about wasted renders. They take so little resources that it is simply undetectable for a human eye. In fact, comparing each component’s props to its previous props shallowly (I’m not even talking about deeply) can be more resource extensive then simply re-rendering the entire subtree.
    1. "Premature optimization is the root of all evil"; start with RPC as default and later switch to REST or GraphQL when (and only if!) the need arises.

    1. Drunk with fatigue

      War is not only difficult on the physical aspect of an individual; it is just as difficult on the emotional and mental capacity of a human. It is factual that WWI culminated an astronomical amount of casualties, destruction, and disablement. This reference to being “drunk” may help guide us into the notion that soldiers are not able to differentiate between fantasy and reality under the duress of mentioned “fatigue.” We can understand that the state of "drunk" alters your reality and can have dangerous repercussions; in this sense, the loss of one's mind or life. In the prior lines we have loss of physical functionalities of the human body with words such as “limped on,” “lame,” and “blind,” which coincides with the premature aging or physical deterioration of the soldiers.

    2. like old beggars

      With the introduction and evolution of chemical weapons used in this war (WWI); human bodies were no match for the damage these weapons were designed to inflict. Leading into the imagery of soldiers physically deteriorating when using phrases such as "bent double," "coughing like hags," and "men marched asleep;" would not lead one to believe that war is “sweet and fitting” in any capacity. With the use of the word “beggars” our minds may envision the effects of poverty and desperation which war seems to produce, and in this sense, we are given language expressing the overwhelming misery and accelerated age progression with the use of “old.” These descriptions challenge the assumptions the mind tends to gravitate towards when picturing what it means to "die for ones country."

    1. The younger rises when the old doth fall. KL III.iii.23  Exit

      The younger generation rises while the old one falls. The new generation of rulers are going to have to re-figure out how to function and run a kingdom properly. They are all too young to understand the wisdom that comes from a King and his rule. King Lear was foolish to believe his daughters ready for inheritance.
