Liked not having to write test cases! Needed too much help, took too long Add more methods; it did not take long Allow us to do recursive methods with loops rather than recursively. Good time drinking beer while watching the demo after I was done. I had intended here to erupt in largely incoherent rage over that wretched concept of recursion, which I came to hate like an enemy: like a sentient being who, knowing the difference between right and wrong, had purposely chosen to do me harm.
