certain things like res and i are so common that I'd consider them expressive variable names, but there's not many. For res, I really like the pascal feature of assigning to the subroutines name, because presumably that's already a descriptive name for the result value.

re not liking low level languages, it seems to me like high- and low-level languages have completely different appeals (I happen to like both of them), so one might like one but not the other. Thinking in systems and poking at bits are as much different areas as back-end and front-end.
