Uncurry(?) in Groovy
// Change a method reference into a closure that takes the delegate as the first parameter

// So uncurrying gives us a closure that will take {x, y ->}

Generating terminal gifs on OS X the free way

Didn't work any of this out, I just stuck things together that I found on the web
