    Add an insanely paranoid linter to your build pipeline and don your flame-proof armor so you can ignore all the protests and you'll be fine. There's a modern language buried under all that horrible backward compatibility crap. I too don't understand why people voluntarily choose to develop in javascript where they have a choice, but it still can be managed out of WTF territory.

    Goodbye Javascript!

    Hey, a WTF with a happy ending!

    The real WTF is the missing line below:

    initech.util.clamp = goog.math.clamp;

    Is "[functionality]" censoring a curse word? :)

    I don't get how this relates. The issue here is that some guy implemented a function wrongly despite a correct utility function anyway existing. Nothing to do with relying on JavaScript, you may as well see this in C# or any other language

    well, that's fine as long as the function footprint is the same. But these guys were planning for extreme platform transparency, so if you swap to a different math library the footprint could be vastly different!

    Their approach is definitely a WTF, but if you assume the world is upside down at least apply glue to the ceiling :P
