var _catch = Promise.prototype.catch;
Promise.prototype.catch = function () {
return, function (err) { setTimeout(function () { throw(err); }, 0); });

oh hm. throwing inside catch continues the chain with a rejected promise -> unterminated chain -> swallows errors.

okay. i get it then. so the setTimeout helps to unswallow subsequent errors in the chain, because when you setTimeout, it's async, so it gets popped back onto the call stack again after it gets queued, going through the event loop, and back onto the call stack with an intact stack trace.
