I really don't like any functional languages, but that's just my personal preference. I think they are not easy to debug and at some point it always becomes hard to determine, wether or not this mess of code and data in a variable is correct or not.

As an interpreter, it's not only slow, but also notices errors only at runtime. Since the parser can get out of step after a typo, you must not only test whatever you changed, but also everything that comes after it. I really prefer to have a compiler filter out this kind of stuff before anything runs.

And a performance like assembly? Laughable. How can an interpreter which has to parse and interpret every line each time it is encountered ever hope to come close to the native machine code? Such nonsense can only be claimed by people who have never tried or understood what assembly or machine code are all about. Even in the old days some people never really understood the overhead involved with parsing, interpreting and then executing a single line of a higher level language.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
