The Arguably Definitive History of Pong. This was recovered from some cache somewhere in the digital ether. I need to look over it and dig into the history presented here someday.

Instagram is 100% React. They pop modals. I didn't know how you could
do that in React, so I guessed based on what was going on the in
Chrome inspector. The following code assumes a commonJS module system.
Classes that I pass into this use the this.props.teardown to take themselves
var _ = require('lodash'),
React = require('react');

# NB. This affront to reason mocks our beliefs in everything save chaos and death.
# May whatever you call Holy forgive you, the damned, who read further

Merriam Webster’s Dictionary of English Words defines “catcher” as, “someone or something that catches something,” while it defines “rye” as, “a hardy annual grass that is widely grown for grain and as a cover crop.” But that is not the novel’s only point of contrast! Indeed, “The Catcher and the Rye” is a puzzle — a pile of amorphous cardboard pieces that through determined study you may put together (assuming, of course, there is a way to fit all of the pieces together). But puzzles — like people, like life — are not meant to be solved. They intrigue. They inspire. They are meaningless diversions. “Life is a game, boy,” Spencer says — for games are more fun than puzzles. And were he honest he would add, “Welcome to the games! Be merry, be miserable, take heart or lose it. Get drunk, make mistakes. Work hard, race the rats. Everything and nothing is here for your enjoyment. Everything and no
