Lab experiments are invaluable in the hard sciences, in part because
neutrinos and monads don't change their behavior when they are being
watched; but humans do.
Several things ran through my mind when I read this sentence.
I kid my monad-loving friends; I kid. The rest of the book is
pretty good, too.
- "Monads don't change their behavior when watched." Wow.
The authors of this book must know a little functional
- Monads mentioned in the same sentence as neutrinos, which
are fundamental particles of the universe? Oh, no. This
will only make the smug functional programming weenies
- Monads are part of the "hard sciences"? These authors
really do get functional programming!
- This sentence appears in a chapter called "The Three
Hardest Words in the English Language". That joke writes
- Maybe I shouldn't be surprised to see this sentence. The
book called Think Like a Freak.
