Seems to me like you're likely already rather intimate with hardware and how things work in computers.
From a quick look at the code-samples, it felt like stepping back into about 1993 and Turbo Pascal.

Pointers are trivial. Memory safety and leaks aren't exactly the hardest things to keep track of either.
Certainly not the view held universally, but reasonably common all the same.

It feels like the language introduces unnecessary complexity in pursuit of the mission to dumb-it-down.
EXACTLY the same mistake so many HTML/JS frameworks force upon their users.

println!("Nah thanks. Keep yer oxidised rubbish Mozilla");

Oh... and here's yer bang back too ( ! )
FFS - it's an exclamation mark ya willies.

Rant aside - thanks for the impetus to finally have a look at it. That was 20 minutes of my life I'll sadly never get back. WTF | :WTF:
