They should do it right from the beginning.

That was an unhappy statement, at least I learned a new word. thanks 😬

Constant complaining from the js community. πŸ˜†


Sadly a time machine written in early JavaScript probably wouldn't work very well πŸ₯³ Merry Christmas


So like a Marvel movie? Or should I say.. Varvel? I will see myself out.
