I was tempted to answer your original question with "Because
Haskell is not an object oriented language and type classes
are not object classes", but I thought that would be
churlish. Now you write:

> Well can you give examples of some useful functions? I can
> live without id, and (.)

and I /have/ to say that if you can live without these you
aren't writing functional programmes.
