I'm not down with the new(er) [Ruby hash syntax][0]. I'm not down.

In javascript, I can do this:

hash = {
  first  : "one"
  second : "two"
  third  : "three"

My very first closure in javascript! I talked about being able to do this in the interview, but my understanding was mainly theoretical (although this is very similar to specializing functors in C++).
View closure.js
$(function() {
var annex = $('.page-insert-annex');
var handle =['handle'];
/* get a closure around annex and handle */
var closure = populate_annex_with_page(annex, handle);
if (annex.length) {
$.when($.get('/pages.json')).done(closure); // be sneaky
