I appreciate the art here, but I don't know if this would be helpful to someone unless they are already familiar with IIFEs, and currying, and arrow functions. There's a lot going on here - it's worth explaining!

Thanks for the suggestions. I might do some animation for these concepts as well. Cheers.

If you consider the intro and outro part of the explanation, then Yes that's 14s!
However, the real explanation section starts around T=4s and ends around T=11s :P
