And this, gentlemen, is just one of the reasons why Haskell gets 
labelled as "scary".

It's very hard to explain what this enigmatic riddle-like statement 
actually *means* without a very long exposition. (Heck, *I* haven't 
worked out how to "borrow from the future" yet...)

[The other reason, of course, is that Haskell's syntax isn't C / C++ / 
Java / VB... which suits me just fine! ;-) ]
