More on the strangeness of JavaScript

I am amazed at how JavaScript can do really strange things, and JavaScript developers just seem to be totally fine with it. Maybe it’s my own misperceptions, coming from Python (with my Pythonic assumptions) that are causing my bafflement. Or maybe JavaScript developers put up with these things because, hey, it’s the language of the web, and you just have to deal with the guff if you want to play the game.

But slowly I’m beginning to appreciate its quirks. Not because it makes writing JavaScript easier for me (it doesn’t), but because I appreciate eccentricities; in people, and apparently in programming languages too.
