Discussion on: My love-hate relationship with JavaScript

I had a similar discussion with a coworker a few weeks ago.

About this: Sometimes I wonder if JavaScript was designed by someone during an acid(LSD) + Ecstasy trip as there are quirks in the language that is mind-numbing.

(I laughed out loud). Apparently the first incarnation of the language was a 10-hour thing. The original designer obviously had no idea what it would become (I don't think anyone would have expected it to explode like that back in the day).

I think I'm also in the love and hate category. I find a lot of things are really cool, but some of its quirks drive me nuts.
