As I pointed out in another response, this moron cannot comprehend basic language. George ignores important words choosing only to see a subset that offends him. For example, in his response above the idiot failed to comprehend the phrases "it is a" and "useful for" by ignoring the words "a" and "useful".

Here the idiot failed to comprehend the phrase "constructing large unpredictable state machines from small predictable state machines". He failed to equate "small predictable state machine" with /object/ and countered by /agreeing/ saying "every object ... behaves in a ... completely predictable fashion". He failed to understand that "large unpredictable state machines" means /programs/.

Here the idiot seems to think you need a buzzword "reflection" to invoke methods at random. LOL.
